Donald Trump made yet another “major announcement” this week, requesting that President Barack Obama hand over his college and passport records and applications in exchange for a $5 million check to a charity of Obama’s choice. He says his deal for the president is one that “I don’t believe he can refuse.” President Obama may think otherwise. Trump added that the president “will become transparent” if the records are released – transparent as his comb-over. Ok, so he didn’t quite say that last part.

Pippa Middleton has a book coming out entitled “Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends.” While it is primarily a party-planning book with hosting tips and recipes, Middleton acknowledges the fame her bum has brought her since its global premiere at her sister’s royal wedding. She writes in the introduction of the book, an excerpt from which was published in Daily Mail’s supplement, You, “It’s a bit startling to achieve global recognition (if that’s the right word) before the age of thirty, on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom.”
