This really happened. It is in the news, and it is not The Onion. No, indeed, the Very Serious Writers at Think Progress actually have this as a headline today:

Top Romney Surrogate Donald Trump Offers To Expose His ‘Very Very’ Impressive Genitals

He “offers” to expose them! As if it’s the least he can do!

[Y]esterday, Trump inserted himself into the controversy surrounding a transgender contestant who had been disqualified from participating in his Miss Universe competition by offering to show his penis…

Because that is just a really normal way to react. Here, from TMZ:

Donald Trump is confident … attorney Gloria Allred would be blown away by his man junk.

The Donald called in to TMZ Live moments ago, claiming, “I think Gloria would be very very impressed with [my penis].”

Donald’s genitals became a topic of contention earlier today during Gloria’s news conference with transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova — when Gloria said, Jenna “didn’t ask Mr. Trump to prove he’s a naturally born man, or see photos of his birth, or to view his anatomy … It made no difference to her.”

And so Donald’s all “well, let me remedy that situation then! Serve ’em up!”

Because this is important, here is the video of former presidential candidate and top Mitt Romney supporter Donald Trump offering to show Gloria Allred his penis, for a fee:

And to think some pessimistic liberals are losing hope for the future of this country…
