TV Responds to Trump’s Latest BS

Had enough Trump for a lifetime or two? Too bad! This morning our colleagues at TVNewser posted an amusing roundup of the TV networks’ varied responses to his moronic “offer” to donate money to the President’s charity of choice as long as Obama releases his school and passport records “To Mr. Trump’s satisfaction” (love that qualifier).

First Trump went on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight and Fox News Channel’s On the Record with Greta Van Susteren to insist that his stupid PR stunt was, in fact, anything but. Most revealing line in the Morgan interview? While he would “very much like to write” the check, Trump also notes that he is “…not looking to pay five million dollars!” It’s almost like he never even planned on doing such a thing…

Van Susteren spoke to Trump by phone and pressed him on his continuing obsession with the possibly even more idiotic “birther” movement. His response? “I’m really surprised by you, you don’t know anything”. Eyes: consider yourselves rolled.

Other responses: Sean Hannity thought Trump’s scheme was a great idea while MSNBC’s Ed Schultz wasted a few minutes of his valuable time speaking out against it. We’ve never been less surprised.

Stick with us, though: it does get better.

The President himself went on Jay Leno for some unknown reason and managed to score a good dig at the Donald:

As usual, however, the win belongs to Stephen Colbert:

Thank you sir. And you’re welcome.
