As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
- Sallust, Roman Historian (B.C. 86-34)
We all know that Barack Obama is a big fan of charity, of course, not the kind of charity where it involves his own money (he only gave one-percent of his income to charity in 2011) but the kind of “charity” where he takes other people’s money and spends it.
Regardless of how Barack Obama defines charity however, what a wonderful gift Trump just handed Obama because by simply releasing his transcripts he can accomplish three things: one, help a worthy cause with a $5 million check, two, make Trump look like an ass by calling his bluff, and three, make up a bit for the miserly 1% of his income he donated to charity.
