A day after Donald Trump stunned the world — er, his world — by offering $5 million offer to charity if the President coughs up his college and passport application papers, the reaction has not been kind. Even the President made fun of him on Leno. The Donald's reputation is in need of a comb-over.
Still, this is hardly the first time the billionaire developer has had to deal with bad press. He's taken heat over the years for a number of things, including his habit of trading in wives for younger models.
But Donald Trump is hardly the first man to do this.
A Chinese man has reportedly divorced his wife and won $120,000 after suing her for being ugly.
According to Planet Ivy, Jian Feng didn't realize his wife was unattractive when he married her because she'd spent a ton of money on plastic surgery (which she neglected to mention). Only after she gave birth to their baby did Feng suspect something amiss.
Seems the little girl was not as cute as dad expected and she didn't look like either parent. He accused his wife of cheating, but she was innocent. Instead, she finally blurted out the ugly truth about her premarital surgeries. "Feng took the only right-minded course of action and divorced and sued her, claiming that she got him to marry her under false pretenses," reports the website.
The judge agreed, reportedly awarding Feng the money. Maybe if President Obama takes Donald Trump up on his offer and submits his application papers, at least some of Trump's $5 million gift can go to the now ex-Mrs. Feng and her daughter in a karmic act of contrition.
Oh, who am I kidding…
