This morning, Donald Trump went after President Obama again, this time with a monetary twist.
In a YouTube video– which he’d been teasing for days– Trump said, “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications … and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice — Inner City Children of Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS Research … a check immediately for 5 million dollars.” He goes on to say the check will be given within an hour of the records being released, and this will end all the questions and anger “of many Americans.”
Needless to say, the President didn’t return Trump’s call. But a bunch of folks on Twitter did, which always makes us very happy. So here are a few of our favorites, the first of which involves Ann Coulter, who made some offensive remark this week that got her in the news. We’re not sure what they were–we kind of ignore her now– but we thought it was worth giving some context in case you didn’t already know.

Thought I saw Donald Trump but it was just a pile of distressed leather with a raccoon napping on top of it.

I will give $50 to the charity of Donald Trump’s choice if he stops trying to make this election about himself. Who’s with me?

Dear Donald Trump: definition of "charity" is "Generosity toward others or toward humanity," NOT "creepy Youtube video ploy for attention."

You know what else Donald Trump could do? Just give 5 million dollars to charity without asking for anything of anyone.
