Birther Boy Donald Trump isn't getting the attention he needs these days what with the presidential campaign gearing into full swing. So he trotted out a new spotlight-grabbing trick on Fox & Friends this morning - including a teaser for some big upcoming announcement "concerning the President of the United States." So big and so important, it can wait two more days while he has a chance to build up the buzz he's lost since he made a complete ass of himself over President Obama's birth certificate and his own phony-baloney pretense of a presidential candidacy. As usual, however, the Curvy Couch Crew was completely credulous.
First, however, the Friends ran through suggested debate tactics/attacks for Mitt Romney to utilize tonight and Trump announced that Obama didn't really get Bin Laden (meaning the SEALS did). Then, near the end, at about the six-minute mark, Doocy helped the hype by saying, "We have sources, Donald, who tell us that you have a large, bordering on gigantic, announcement this week."
As the Friends smiled with eager anticipation, Doocy said, "Give us a hint! ...Just a little hint!"
"Will it change the election?" Gretchen Carlson asked hopefully.
Trump said it's both personal and political, "all in one, everything. It's very big. Bigger than anybody would know."
Nobody mentioned Trump's bogus, completely discredited birther campaign against the President. Nobody asked him what happened to that big investigation in Hawaii into President Obama's birth certificate that Trump boasted about in April, 2011 - but has yet to produce. Instead, Brian Kilmeade offered to give up his sportscast to make room for Trump on the show on Wednesday.
Feel free to tweet Trump at @realDonaldTrump and let him know what you think.
<a class="tweet-url username" href="http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=You">You</a> liberals are scared to death that your guy, Obama, is going to be a one term President.
Eh, not really — all polls have the President ahead, including significantly ahead in swing states like Ohio and Florida.
<a class="tweet-url username" href="http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=His">His</a> record is abysmal. You know it and he knows it.
If you’re referring to Romney’s record as MA governor, you’re right.
<a class="tweet-url username" href="http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=Whatever">Whatever</a> Trump has up his sleeve, will only help Romney in a landslide win.
Um, you realize you’re referring to a man who declared bankruptcy FOUR times?
<a class="tweet-url username" href="http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=If">If</a> itâs the birth certificate issue . . .
Then you need to quit while you’re behind: two separate fact-checking organizations have verified the President’s BC as real . . .
<a class="tweet-url username" href="http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=Fox">Fox</a> is the most watched cable news network. You know it and it scares you to death.
Not really. SpongeBob SquarePants and the season finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” both drew more viewers than Fox — considering their target demographic is the same . . .
I’ll be asking the good folks of ’merica to make me a write-in!!!
Lemme guess — will it be
1. he’s FINALLY going to release the results of his “investigation” into President Obama’s birth certificate
2. “The Apprentice” is going into syndication
3. he’s getting divorced [again]
4. he’s declaring bankruptcy [again]
Note how Arpaio is now keeping his mouth shut for the first time in years. I don’t think Trump is that smart, but it would be funny to repeat the tactic on him, anyways.
