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):
