Donald Trump tried to drop a bombshell on the 2012 Presidential Election this afternoon… only for it to land with a thud.

The real estate mogul will donate $5 million to a charity of Barack Obama’s choice if POTUS unveils his college transcripts?!? That’s an offer, not a piece of news.

As you might expect, the non-reveal made for some entertaining Twitter fodder. We’ve collected some of the best celebrity-based responses below…
