Donald Trump’s surprise: Salon readers’ theories

Our favorite guesses as to what Donald Trump's "very very big" announcement will be VIDEO

Topics: Barack Obama, Twitter, Donald Trump, 2012 Elections, #trumpsurprise,

On Monday’s “Fox & Friends,” P.R. intern Donald Trump mentioned that he had a “very very big” announcement about President Barack Obama — one that he believes could change the outcome of the 2012 presidential election.  Of course, Trump is milking the attention for all it’s worth:

The last time he hyped a big unveil it was a video for the RNC that never aired. (The event was rained out, but Salon’s Alex Pareene also beat the Donald to the punch):

Naturally Salon is eagerly anticipating Trump’s “large, bordering on gigantic” announcement about President Obama and readers have joined in on the fun. We asked you to tweet theories to #TrumpSurprise — here are some of the best:

 Obama sold cocaine in college

There’s still something to that birther theory, after all

Trump will release Obama’s college transcripts

That Obama has marital problems

It’s just a P.R. stunt

Maybe it’s something mundane

Or maybe it’s not

Tune in tomorrow for the big unveil.
