Natl IQ Test: If You Believed Twin Clowns Trump, Allred Had Bombshells, You Failed

By Debbie Schlussel

Disappointed that Donald Trump’s “bombshell” about Barack Obama was a nothing? If so, then you haven’t been paying attention to Trump’s antics. Everything he does is for self-promotion and for largely a decade, it’s been about promoting his crappy reality show, “The Apprentice,” a new season of which is starting soon. On Monday, a very smart and astute reader (whom I respect a great deal), sent me a link to a Washington Times story on Trump’s announcement that he was gonna make another announcement today that will really turn people against Barack Obama (the reader didn’t say he believed it, just sent me the link). Here is my response to the reader:

Subject: Re: Fw: Donald+Trump+says+he’ll+drop+political+bombshell+on+Obama+-+Washington+Times

I saw that and don’t believe it. He’s a blowhard who needs ratings and attention for his latest “The Apprentice” show. If he had a bombshell, he’d drop it without warning.

And I was right. Not exactly Einstein or Nostradamus stuff here if you’ve followed Trump’s “boy who cried wolf” antics for virtually his entire career. He’s the biggest tease in America. Or, rather, the biggest tease in America with a yellow bird’s nest growing on his head and an ego that even Kryptonite wouldn’t dent. He has a new season of the low-rated “Apprentice” to pimp. And he’ll say anything to remain in the public eye to promote it, since “The Apprentice” is really his only successful business. The guy is an attention whore. Period.

And the same goes for Gloria Allred, who is even more predictable than the extremely predictable Trump. Frankly, the greatest reality show ever would be to drop her and Trump and Rosie O’Donnell on a deserted island and turn off the cameras forever. I think of them the way I think of Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims. Let them kill each other and let allah sort it out.

Allred’s claimed bombshell that she predicted would hurt Romney in a big way was some nothing attempt to unseal some testimony that Mitt Romney gave, backing his friend in a divorce case. So what? I’m not a big Romney fan, but I admire anyone who backs his/her friends in troubled times. It says a lot about him, and we know that, while he’s definitely not the ideal candidate, personally Mitt Romney has a record as an adult of being a decent guy to those in need.

I doubt there’s anything in that testimony that would do anything to ding Romney, short of his admitting he committed rape and murder, which isn’t the case.

Whenever I hear of or see these two clowns, Trump and Allred, I laugh and sigh. And sometimes post about it on this site. They provide endless material. But not in the way I’m sure they intended. On the other hand, it probably is the way they intended, since they just want attention. And that’s always been and always will be their only motive in anything they do.

Blowhards will continue to blow hard. It’s just what they do. There’s never anything of value in it, though. Or any news.

Whenever anyone tells me about some impending October surprise, including the Israeli bombing of Iran that never happened and won’t in October (or early November), I just suppress a laugh. “October surprise” is like bigfoot or a bucket full of golden coins at the end of the rainbow.

They just don’t exist.

The only thing surprising about an “October surprise” is that people still think they will actually be surprised.

And that goes double for Big Bird, binders full of women and bayonets we’ve been hearing about!

There real issues facing this country and instead our attention is held by moronic trivialities no one cares about.

The sure of a losing campaign is measured by its attempts to create the appearance it still has a pulse – as in Obama’s belated release of his second term plan.

I just have to laugh at all of the above – the quality of our politics leaves a good deal to be desired. Romney has some policies that are terribly misguided and ineffective but to his credit, he is forthright about them – so we know exactly what we can expect from him.

This is what a human being, a leader and a President should do! In Romney, we’ll have an adult on the job. October duds aside, we all wish him the best as our next President in waiting and we pray that G-d give him the wisdom to serve our country well!

    “Romney has some policies that are terribly misguided and ineffective but to his credit, he is forthright about them.”

    Norman! The only time Mittens is forthright is when he’s me-tooing Barky.

    If Mittens is elected, we can hope that he will be a fine president. However, there is little reason to believe he will be such a president. We can expect him to be somewhat better on the economy. That’s about it.

Donald Trump = Geraldo Rivera
Obama’s College Records = Al Capone’s Vault

Irving on October 24, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I sure hope Gloria does her own color. Otherwise, there is someone out there whose cosmotology license should be pulled.

She looks like a skunk! Oh, of course, this is another big nothing. The Donald has no ethics.

As goes Israel, so goes the World... on October 24, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Gloria? Can’t you afford a makeover?

As goes Israel, so goes the World... on October 24, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Allred w/ Trump? I’d rather set her loose w/ Whoopi, Oprah, Rosie and turn off the cameras. Oh, and toss in Stan Cohen, as well as some Muslim thugs from Libya, Egypt, Gaza and Syria as well. They should have a blast – in more ways than 1.

Infidel on October 24, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Geraldo Rivera some years ago sought Al Capone’s fabled vault and when it was opened – it was empty!

I never believed there was an “October Surprise” – these childish stunts are staged for the public benefit of those who instigate them.

Such stupid people deserve to be laughed at and we should never fear them or give them power over us!

NormanF on October 24, 2012 at 2:30 pm

For a man of his supposed wealth what a piker Trump turned out to be. A mere five million for Obama’s college records. If he had offered fifty million that might have caught the public’s attention but five million warrants hardly a yawn. Obama on the other hand spends hundreds of millions (of taxpayers’ dollars) in order to get attention. But at this point I think the public is tired of both of them.

Jerry G on October 24, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Our next President in waiting has an interesting pedigree – related to many famous people:

“Romney’s family tree connects him to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Pierce, Herbert Hoover, and both George H.W. and George W. Bush.

Romney is connected to Presidents George W. Bush (10th cousins, twice removed), George H. W. Bush (10th cousins, once removed) and Franklin D. Roosevelt (8th cousins, twice removed) through Ann Marbury Hutchinson, a key figure in the development of religious freedom in America and early settler of Rhode Island and New York.

Romney is related to Presidents Calvin Coolidge (10th cousins), Herbert Hoover (10thcousins) and Franklin Pierce (6th cousins, 4 times removed) through Thomas Richardson, a landowner in the late 1500s in Hertfordshire, England.”

NormanF on October 24, 2012 at 2:38 pm


Troy’s Samuel Wilson was not the source of “Uncle Sam.” The term was already in use before he packed his first barrels of meat and pork for the army. The 1961 Congressional resolution declaring that Samuel Wilson gave us “Uncle Sam” is all wrong. President George Bush’s 1989 declaration of Samuel Wilson’s birthday as “Uncle Sam Day” is all wrong.

“Uncle Sam” was first cited in Bennington, Vermont, in December 1812. There is a 200th anniversary coming up.

[Yeah, I know. No newspapers can print this. The symbol of our nation, ho-hum. Crickets. Hey! Gloria Allred and Donald Trump have breaking announcements!!! Look, Honey Boo-Boo is on TV!!!!!]

Barry Popik on October 24, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Has Geraldo found Al Capone yet? Clowns have always existed. They used to be called court jesters. Few take them seriously. Kind of like the Tawana Brawley wannabe who set herself on fire. KKK did it. Really? There is a sucker born every minute.

JeffT on October 24, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I recall one October surprise: W’s DUI.

skzion on October 24, 2012 at 4:54 pm

LOLOL…I loved the bird’s nest comment. Hee-hee!

Yep. And yet soooo many peeps think that Nest Head is a “Conservative”. They better research how he gave Rahm “The Creepy Ballerina” Emanuel heaps of $$$. This guy is a big-noting bag of gas.

And Gloria Allred is my all-time favourite reminder that feminism is the biggest fraud on the planet. She’s a human “facepalm”. She is so odious. And it’s fitting that such a cretin is such an embarrassing reminder of past folly.

And ‘As Goes…” *ahem* we Skunks don’t want that cretin Allred in our tribe. No way, no how!

Skunky on October 24, 2012 at 5:38 pm

What’s worse is that the information with which Trump is titillating us is material that has been discussed at length over the past four years on many of our blogs. Yes, Obama became an Indonesian citizen. Yes, Obama had an Indonesian passport and attended American schools as a foreign student because it made admission for him easier and provided him scholarship opportunities. Debbie accurately reported the fact that he never registered for the selective service system when he turned 18. That’s because he was residing in the U.S. as a foreign student (or at least that’s how he saw himself at the time) and he saw no legal reason for registering and obviously wasn’t prompted by school administrators at Occidental or Harvard to offer proof of his registration because they saw him as a foreign student. His anger at his mother was how she mucked up his Hawaiian birth certificate, which he had to desparately attempt to remedy many years later to match the biographical narrative Bill Ayers helped him hone to launch his political career. Don’t believe that bullshit about him and Michelle having a bunch of student loans either. The only money he and Michelle borrowed was spending money; their tuition was fully covered. They had money problems years into their marriage because Barry charged over $30,000 on a credit card in both of their names to help finance his disastrous campaign against Rep. Bobby Rush. Tony Rezko entered the picture to make their money problems go away. All of this information was discoverable by any serious investigative reporter, but the mainstream media has been totally disinterested in it. Trump is merely using the unpaid work of others’ labors and using it for his own publicity-seeking purposes as Debbie aptly describes his intentions here.

Gary Welsh on October 24, 2012 at 6:10 pm

    Gary, I want to piggy-back something on to your statements.

    Obama-Putin’s first book (the one written by Bill Ayers) caused a heap of marital trouble for the Obama-Putin’s. Obama-Putin could NOT write it and so he missed his numerous deadlines (even after going to Bali to attempt a final go at it) and had already spent his advance.

    Michelle Antoinette, absolutely disgusted, had Bill Ayers step in and write it in the final attempt. (Read DFMF and ANY Ayers book and you’ll see the similar writing style…plus it’s already been forensically proven that Ayers ghost-wrote it).

    Obama-Putin had a trusty and loyal book agent who successfully got him another book advance (they did not ask him to pay back the first one…) and in the end, Obama-Putin CHEATED her out of the $$ she should have earned in the negotiation. Thousands of $$$$.

    Of course that agent won’t talk about it. People have tried but her lips are sealed.

    He treated her as he did his “friend” Alice Palmer.

    Yet the meme survives that he’s a good and caring man. BARF!!!

    Skunky on October 24, 2012 at 6:24 pm

This is why I love this sight Debbie. Right now even as I’m typing this on The Five on Fox News they’re talking about PT,er,I mean Donald Trump. It is funny to watch a clown like Bob Beckel(who looked like he sucked on lemons during the whole show)make fun of Donald. This bozo(Trump) is nothing but a egomanical windbag who is just trying to pimp his stupid TV show. What makes this nitwit think that Odummer would release any of his records for a measley 5 million anyway. Both Odummer and his Klingon war bride are into much bigger bucks so Trump’s “October suprise” is a dud just like his show. Now as for Gloria Allred. What can I say about the old gal other than she’s bat shi’ite crazy. All she has in her loaded gun against Willard is nothing but blanks. Testimony in a divorce case. Boy someone call the Romney campaign STAT because this looney bird has the goods to derail the whole show. You just know that Snidley Whiplash Axelroid and company were hoping for the old buzzard to have something akin to taking down Herman Cain but no dice. You’re right Debbie that would be a great reality show but don’t just add Allred, Trump, and Odoughnut. Add the whole cast of The View, skanks Jolie, Longoria and Kerri Washington and the whole cabal of leftist moonbats in Congress. That would be entertainment.

Mark D on October 24, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Spot on, Skunky. The biographical narratives of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are as much of a fairy tale as the autobiography Ayers ghost wrote for Barry. They both were working for the CIA undercover when they were involved in the Weather Underground. Their mission was to make the anti-Vietnam War movement appear as radical and leftist as possible to turn mainstream America against the movement and on that score they succeeded marvelously. Tom Ayers, the former CEO of Commonwealth Edison, didn’t raise a terrorist. Daddy Ayers served on the board of G.D. Searle when Donald Rumsfeld was the pharmaceutical company’s CEO. He also served on the board of General Dynamics, a major defense contractor which was controlled by the Henry Crown family. Crown’s children and grandchildren were major contributors to Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and his 2004 Senate campaign. Lester Crown, who is best known for his role in bribing a bunch of Illinois lawmakers during the early 1970s to benefit highway contractors, gave cover to Obama in the Jewish commmunity as being pro-Israel. The Crown family was heavily tied in to organized crime in Chicago. Bill Ayers was assigned by the CIA to tutor young Barry, whose reputed grandfather and grandmother, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, both worked as CIA contract employees. The real reason Bill and Bernardine escaped prosecution for their roles in the Weather Underground terrorism is because the government didn’t want to blow their CIA cover. Bernardine was able to get into law school and get a job at the prestigious Sidley & Austin law firm where Michelle worked as an associate and Barry interned one summer during law school. Bill, of course, became a tenured professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Funny how their terrorist pasts didn’t bother their prestigious employers in the least bit. It’s because they knew their true roles. The government documents which prove all of this won’t be released until long after the involved parties are long dead.

Gary Welsh on October 24, 2012 at 7:27 pm

I think Allred and Trump should rent a room in a motel that later falls into the sea due to an earthquake.

Worry01 on October 25, 2012 at 3:14 am

I’m not a big fan of Trump but I think he is onto something. I wouldn’t be offering money to charities though. I’d be offering it to anyone who could get their grubby little hands on Obama’s transcripts. And while they are at it, a copy of Hilary’s college thesis.

Daniel Middleman on October 25, 2012 at 7:35 am

I would have been shocked if D.Bag Trump had actually had something really shocking to release. Not at all surprised at what he released. And we know that “O” wont respond at all.

MR TRUMP – GET A REAL HAIRCUT. ANY man with ridiculous hair like that can not be taken seriously. I don’t care how much money you have, so long as you have that ridiculous hair you do yourself extreme disservice.

On a serious note-
I propose that we amend the requirements to be President of the United States to include:

– prospective candidates must have prior military service of some kind. I dont care if they were an enlisted supply clerk, at least they are familiar with the military and how things work. I don’t see how we can have a CinC who has never worn a uniform before. Disgusting.

-prospective candidates must also be able to pass the background requirements that a Federal Agent must meet. That means no prior use of hard drugs, no anti-American activities and/or travels in their past, open access to academic records, and able to pass a background check. The President is also the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the USA and we should not have someone as leader over these Officers who could not get the job if they applied for it.

These requirements would have kept us from having Clinton, Bush 2, and Obama. Just imagine how things may have been different.


Disgusted with Media on October 25, 2012 at 1:08 pm

IMO Trump’s offer of 5 mil was another clever stunt of his. If Obama accepted his offer he would win two points. A charitable tax deduction plus the docs. A win win for him!

Rochelle on October 25, 2012 at 2:09 pm

I’m not a Trump fan and I realize that this is an empty self-serving stunt but, given that this is the “smartest president in history (just ask him if you doubt it)”, I would like to see these transcripts. For someone so spectacular there seem to be very few people that actually knew him or worked with him. I thought Trump was going to give us some new inside information. This is just a challenge for something that is not really new. Aldred’s “bombshell” is too stupid to discuss. At least Trump is entertaining.

jerry doegen on October 25, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Donald Trump makes me laugh he is so obvious with his attention-getting antics. He is doing what he does with a touch of humor just to stir the waters and get himself on t.v., IMO. As strictly an observer, I like him. 🙂

Jade418 on October 25, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Oh yeah? Well first of all Debbie and the rest of you morons – Nobody’s gonna remember you 10 years from now. How many buildings have YOUR NAME on them? And the “crap” show you so dislike (if you dislike it why are you watching it – if you’re not watching it how do you know it’s crsp) brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars every season for charity. You are all a bunch of bozos.
