Donald Trump promised yesterday to reveal a big October surprise Wednesday, sending election-watchers into a frenzy of speculation and wild predictions. The shocking reveal has been, to the say the least, underwhelming. In a video released on YouTube this afternoon, Trump offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice if the president released his college records by the end of the month.

The real-estate mogul has been a champion of the Tea Party “birther” movement, determined to prove the president’s supposed Kenyan origins. Last year Obama silenced all but the most fanatical birthers at the White House Correspondents Dinner, where he released the long-form birth certificate right-wing conservatives were clamoring for. Since then, Trump has refocused his efforts on obtaining the president’s college records, which he is convinced is a gift bag of damning information.
