If this report in the UK Daily Mail is true Donald Trump’s huge revelation is a just another in a long serious of embarrassments dressed up as news presented by this publicity hound.
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.’
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.
This is old news, they are not getting divorced any more. Earlier this year when Ed Klein’s book was released we learned that divorce papers have previously been made after Obama’s unsuccessful run for congress.
In Klein’s book, called ‘The Amateur’, he claimed that Mrs Obama prepared the divorce papers to separate from the President in 2000 following his disastrous attempt to win a House seat in Chicago.
After he lost miserably the future First Lady was supposedly disgusted that her husband had put at risk their ‘stable and secure future’.
The book claims their marriage – in its eighth year at the time – was ‘on the rocks’ with Mr Obama so depressed some of his friends feared he was suicidal.
This is the big deal? Trump has unearth some 12-year-old divorce papers? WHO CARES. This does not change my opinion of Barack Obama as a president. I will go further…it is none of my business or the business of anyone else besides the Obama family.
Rather than change anyone’s opinion of Barack Obama, this story would do nothing but further damage the tattered reputation of Donald Trump, who’s attempts at participating as a deal maker in this election season has shown him to be more of a clown than a politicians.
Word to Fox and Friends and any other TV show that might carry this story. PLEASE, do not feed the troll.
