Donald Trump's much heralded "October Surprise", that he had news that could change the course of the presidential election, turned out to be vintage Trump braggadocio involving his twin obsessions of money and race baiting President Obama.
Trump provided no new facts. He simply offered to donate five million dollars to Obama's favorite charity if the President would release his "passport information" along with college admission and grade records. This plays to the four year long effort to depict Obama as the un American "outsider", a black African hailing from Kenya. Trump, who toyed with running for President himself, is the last and most visible celebrity extremist continuing to ride this despicable racist ploy to end the administration of our first African American president.
A real "October Surprise" would be if Trump would look deep into his flawed character, have an epiphany, and announce his intention to dedicate the remainder of his life to being a decent actor on the national stage.
