Donald Trump promised the country the biggest, most game-changing, most shocking October surprise ever--and it was, to be frank, a bit of a dud.
Taking to Twitter, Trump offered President Obama "a deal he can't refuse," offering to donate $5 million to charity if Obama would release his college application and records and his passport records.
During his visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Obama showed that he wasn't taking Trump's persistent pursuit of birther claims seriously.
When Jay Leno asked about "this thing with Trump and you.... it's like me and Letterman, what's he got against you?", Obama's response was a good-natured joke.
"This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya," Obama said, suggesting that it comes from Trump's resentment over Obama's athletic advantage. "We had, you know, constant run-ins on the soccer field, and he wasn't very good, and resented it."
"When we finally moved to America, I thought it'd be over."
