The following musing was inspired by this Huffington Post article a few weeks back. I have been waiting to write it in case the Donald decided to aimlessly throw his money around for no reason again.
I think the coast is clear, for now.
It has been a few weeks since President Obama's re-election and where is Trump at? He hasn't been stirring up a frenzy in the media over off-base claims of birthplace, citizenship, and college education of the popularly, re-elected President. Perhaps he is in his gold-enshrined penthouse in the Empire State licking his wounds. Or any one of his Trump properties across the globe trying to forget about his irrelevancy in politics. The public has spoken, and they didn't buy what he was selling.
Twitter is right on the money calling for Trump to put his money to good use. Instead of trying to intimidate the leader of the free world with birther and other nonsense, the Donald should take his millions and give it a purpose. Money definitely cannot buy integrity or humility. If it could, then we should all chip in and buy Mr. Trump a little.
This five-million dollar challenge got me thinking: What else could you do with $5 million?
- Send 250 kids to college (assuming the average 4-year college tuition is $20,000).
- Purchase 25,000 iPhone 5's (for the 16 gig with a 2-year contract)
- Eat about 1,520,000 Big Mac's (but don't - the consequences to your health would be catastrophic)
What else could $5 million do?
