In response to Donald Trump's offensive and publicity-seeking offer to donate $5 million to charity if President Obama releases his college records, a moved Stephen Colbert is offering $1 million to the mogul's preferred charity if he can tea-bag Trump. As Colbert notes, "nothing would make America happier than to have something
going into [Trump's] mouth instead of coming out of it".
There are conditions, and a time limit, which you can learn more about AFTER THE JUMP. The language is not so office-friendly, so you may want to break out some headphones.

President Obama touched on a whole slew of topics during his appearance on NBC's Tonight Show last night.
The commander-in-chief talked Halloween, the debates and test-driving a pal's Chevy Volt. He also poked fun at Donald Trump's offer to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice if the president would unveil his college transcripts and passport application, another volley in Trump's publicity campaign to "prove" Obama is foreign.
"This all goes back to when we grew up together in Kenya," the president laughed. "We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America I thought it would be over.”
The biggest headlines out of last night however are Obama's comments about Richard Mourdock, the Romney-backed Indiana Senate candidate who pulled a Todd Akin by saying that rape is "something God intended" and victims should keep potential babies produced by said crime.
Obama of course disagrees:
I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas. Let me make a very simple proposition: rape is rape. It is a crime. These various distinctions about rape don’t make any sense to me. This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, make decisions about women’s heath issues.

Now, in news that is not about Chick-fil-A, though does involve some clucking: President Obama's reelection campaign today released a new ad attacking rival Mitt Romney.
Called "Stretch," the 30-second spot hits Romney on his own low tax rate and plans to raise taxes on the middle class. And, as BuzzFeed's Zeke Miller pointed out on Twitter, the commercial includes a shot of Romney walking in front of politically convenient friend and supporter Donald Trump's plane last May.
Christian Heinze at GOP 12 writes, "It was inevitable [that moment] would show up in an Obama ad. The optics are awful for Romney. Why did he let this happen?"
He goes on: "Letting yourself get off the plane while Trump's jet lingers in the background is like Kristen Stewart sending an apology email to Robert Pattinson with a file attached MeAndRupert.jpg."
Watch "Stretch" AFTER THE JUMP.
