The right pulls this "woe is me because the media doesn't behave like I demand they do" routine and it is old.

For this pretense to work, you should be able to show how the media demanded Bush's transcripts.
Until then...

(And note, "the media" doesn't mean some podunk blogger who asked for something. Not some "contributor" who wrote something on an ABC message board.
If THAT is your interpretation of "the media", then obviously an equivalent reaction would be provable by showing some other blogger demanding Obama's records...)

And out parades the "woe is me" act...
I will admit that some elements of the media tilt left.
Some elements of the media tilt right.

But let's drop the non-topical rant and discuss the issue.
Is there ANY GROUNDS for requiring Obama to show "college records"?

Is there ANY LEGITIMACY to the pretense that "media favoritism" is involved here?
To prove that, you would have to show how they treated Bush's college records differently, and so far that has not been shown ...

Obama's college grades: Trump wants to see president's transcripts
Maybe he didn't pay attention. I've heard him say he wasn't with the program at first and hung out and did kid stuff then got his act together. But if you'll look at Harvard's websites and information you'll see they have other criteria as well as grades. Always have.It cause they're academically inclined not monetarily. I think the criteria is much higher for virtue or serious pursuits , worthiness, interest, dedication, creativity.
They are primarily a "doer" learning environment as opposed to a follower imo.
I think the face book genius graduated from there?

You can't be naive enough to actually accept that answer.

It would never have gotten this far if he had produced it from the start. He allowed this to fester and grow. Its no one's fault but his own.

Trump is asking for college records because rumor has it that he was a poor student during his undergrad years so, "how did he get into Harvard"? Trump is reaching and it defies common sense. If Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard and became editor of the Harvard Law Review, what would give him reason to give an ounce of credence to a rumor that he was a bad student before entering Harvard?
Again, what is the point of keeping them private? Did we not know Bush's grades?

So he increases his ratings and makes Obama do a song and dance?

The point isn't to keep them private. It's to no dignify every conspiracy theory by jumping through their mindless hoops.

He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard. What would be the point of bringing up undergrad records outside of trying to create a conspiracy in the minds of the conspiracy prone right?

You don't get into Harvard and graduate in the top percentile of you class by being an avg. dolt.

That's reserved for Yale grads where legacy and wealth can buy a degree. Neither of which Obama possessed.
