Donald Trump has been running hard against Barack Obama, even though it’s quite early in the race for the Presidency. Trump has been arguing that there is no evidence to prove that Obama was born in America. More recently, he questioned how Obama, whom he described as a “terrible student,” could get into Columbia and then Harvard. “I have friends who have smart sons…with great everything and they can’t get into Harvard,” Trump is quoted as saying. As many of you might not remember— perhaps because it never happened, Trump also questioned the legacy admission of George W. Bush to Yale, during the 2000 and 2004 campaigns. You might, however, recall that Bush finished with a gentleman “C” average while Obama was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review.
At Stevieslaw, we recognize serious discussion when we hear it, so when Mr. Trump announced this morning he had new and even more startling disclosures to make about Obama, we sent our intrepid reporter, Smokey Diamond, to hear it. During the news conference, The Donald made it clear that he was not directly accusing Mr. Obama of any crime. “What I am forced to investigate,” he stated, “ is the question of Mr. Obama’s whereabouts on the night five-hundred Taliban prisoners escaped from an institution in Pakghanistan.” “We all know,” he continued “that a break-out of this magnitude could not be accomplished without some help form highly placed sources.” “We also know that Hussein Obama is one of the few people on the planet that can fly to Pakghanistan on a moment’s notice.” “In addition, my operatives have found a well-worn shovel and a pair of leather gloves in Mr. Obama’s size somewhere near the White House.” “Is this just another coincidence, Mr. President?” “Trust me” he said, “The people will judge.”
A spokesperson for Obama would only say, “We always take seriously, comments and questions from Mr. Trump, who is after all, a representative of the most moderate wing of the Republican Party.
