For the love of… Just when it seems the election is trending the GOP’s way, here comes Donald Trump trying to “help” in his inimitable way. He is set to release a “bombshell” tomorrow that he says is “very big” and bad for Obama. But it may already be old news.
The billionaire told Fox & Friends that he had ‘something very, very big concerning the president of the United States’. ‘It’s going to be very big. I know one thing- you will cover it in a very big fashion’.
Trump declined to elaborate, but today an investor who appears on the same business talk show as him claimed to have more details.
Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talkshow ‘Squawkbox’ where Trump is often a commentator, tweeted to his 48,000 followers: ‘High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.’
When asked about the Tweet, Trump spokeswoman Holly Lorenzo told MailOnline: ‘All we know is that he is going to announce it on his Twitter and Facebook accounts tomorrow. I don’t know what time it will be, that’s all I know.’
Interviews with both Kass and Trump appeared on the show’s website this morning.
Kass is an author, the founder and President of Seabreeze Partners Management and has also appeared in newspapers including the Wall St Journal and the New York Times.
The claims about divorce papers have previously been made in a book released earlier this year by author Ed Klein. The White House rubbished the allegations then and claimed Klein had a history of making things up.
So the bombshell would be that Obama lied about something? Knock me over with a feather. He did that several times in the debates and it hasn’t been treated as any “bombshell.” He accused Mitt Romney of being a felon and a murderer without a shred of proof and the media shrugged. Unless those papers include something new and very explosive, they’re not going to be worth much, and using them just might end up generating sympathy for Obama.
For the good of the nation, Mr. Trump, please be careful. Late attacks sometimes rebound to benefit the person attacked. Lots of Americans, including Trump himself, have had marital problems. What Obama did to Jack Ryan cannot be done to Obama.
