“Tomorrow I will be tweeting on only one subject,” the “Real” Donald Trump tweeted to his 1.6 million Twitter followers just after 2 p.m. EDT Tuesday. A minute later he followed with: “My announcement is tomorrow!”
Trump’s teasing message apparently refers to the “October surprise” he said that he would unleash on President Obama this Wednesday. All proof that The Donald finds nothing more fascinating than a presidential election, except a presidential election involving him.
It was hard to tell whether anyone really had a lot of interest in Trump's big reveal. An Irish company that bills itself as “Europe’s largest betting company” said it would start taking wagers on the nature of the revelation.
The best odds from Paddy Power, 2 to 5, went to an old Trump favorite: “Obama is not an American.”
Those looking for a long shot could go with “Obama wears a wig” at 500 to 1. Other betting options included: “Trump to endorse Obama” at 8 to 1, “Obama to guest on Trump’s reality show ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ ” at 50 to 1, “Obama knows the moon landing was staged” at 250 to 1 and “Obama is an alien” (whether extraterrestrial was not specified), also at 250 to 1.
