But I remember Trump being a mouthy birfer almost from the first year of the Obama Administration, and then, even more insulting, demanding that Obama make public his college records --and offering as an inducement a hefty donation to the United Negro College Fund.
Which he never would have made.

His history suggests he'd insist they settle for $10.00 or take him to court.

But in Trump Land, merely saying 'I'll donate $x.xx to Y if you release Z" gets him attention, makes him look like he actually has millions of dollars in liquid assets, and gets him attention.

The modern 24 hour news cycle makes everything go away, at least for a while.

Did I mention that it gets him attention?
