Is it better to be lucky or good? In the case of Piers Morgan, maybe it's best to be both.
On the heels of Wednesday afternoon's "Big Announcement" by Donald Trump, tonight the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host welcomes the man who crowned him the first-ever winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice."
Pledging to donate $5 million to a charity of Barack Obama's choice if the president releases his college applications and passport records, the television personality and business magnate insists it's a challenge that should be accepted:
"If there’s nothing wrong with his applications – if everything’s fine, why wouldn’t he do it?" wonders Trump. "I think it would be a terrible thing of the President to not do it, in order to pick up $5 million, I think that would be outrageous, personally."
Once a reality show contestant, but forever a journalist, Morgan counters:
"He would say that it’s just a publicity stunt for you."
The chairman and president of The Trump Organization sees it differently:
"I don’t have to pay $5 million to a charity of his choice, it’s not a publicity stunt, it’s a serious, very serious offer, essentially where a charity is the beneficiary, a great charity and a charity of his choice," the man dubbed "The Donald" tells Morgan. "[It] has nothing to do with me. Here is $5 million, a tremendous amount of money going to a charity of his choice; all he has to do is show some papers."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as Donald Trump explains why Obama's records and transcripts are important to the American people.
