Too Little Too Late, Mr. Birther!

48093056-cachedtrump_tweet_birther_080612So now, just hours after Donald Trump couldn’t bring himself to admit to The Washington Post that President Barack Obama was born in the U.S.A. — some campaign flunky puts out a statement saying that Herr Trump actually believes that Obama is, in fact, born in America.

trump-fnc-birtherWell, let’s hear that from Donald J. Trump himself.

And then let’s hear him tell us what the hell this nonsense (or pack of shameless lies) was all about 5 years ago:


(CNN)
Possibly-serious Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is giving few details about the investigation he claims to have launched in Hawaii to get to the bottom of where President Obama was born, but the business mogul told CNN Thursday Americans will be “very surprised” by what he has found.

donald-trump-i-really-dont-know-if-obama-was-born-in-the-us“We’re looking into it very, very strongly. At a certain point in time I’ll be revealing some interesting things,” Trump said on CNN’s American Morning.Trump first claimed earlier this month he had sent investigators to Obama’s home state in an effort to find out if the president was indeed born there, as he says he was and several media organization’s independent investigations have confirmed.

trump-birther-tweet“I have people that have been studying it and they cannot believe what they’re finding,” Trump told NBC then.

******

C’mon mass media! Don’t let Trump skate on this one. What specific “interesting things” did he find out about Obama’s citizenship five years ago?

trumpbirtherWhat did his “people that have been studying it” really find? And why could they not “believe what they’re finding.”

Trump said all this crap.

The media must get Trump to say that Obama is a citizen with his own lips – and then ask the follow-up questions.

Make Trump back all his old statements up.

Or admit it was all a lie.

r-donald-trump-obam-birth-certificate-large570The Presidency of the United States is at stake.

I’m talking to you, Wolf Blitzer, Brian Williams, Lester Holt, Anderson Cooper, Andrea Mitchell – and maybe, just maybe, the last honest journalists on FOX News.

Hoist the Great Orange Demagogue by his own petard.

    DAMN, Paul, I love reading your thoughts

  2. Great point. Why did he get confused about Obama’s birth? Wouldn’t be because the guy is black, would it?

      Maybe because Trump was a friend of Hillary’s and Hillary’s strategists (Blumenthal and Penn) in Feb 2008 retailed the story about Obama being born in Kenya. Maybe because for 19 years in his book bio (and other places) Obama claimed Kenyan birth. Maybe because this could have all been settled by Obama releasing his birth certificate in 2008, instead of resisting until 2012.

      • Why should anyone who was already elected to public office as a state legislator and as a U.S. Senator have to release his birth certificate to anyone — especially when the state of Hawaii had already certified his birth in the state? This only happened to a black man seeking the Presidency.

        Democrats elected from Chicago, Illinois should always be trusted. They are a paragon of virtue, honesty and ethics. They would never claim something to be true that is not.

        Perhaps a presidential election is something a little more serious than a state or even US senatorial election.

        Perhaps because he was not a clear case given his mother’s residency outside of the US for so much of her adult life prior to his birth, a key clause in the definition under the Constitution for determining “natural born”.

        Remember, a similar effort was undertaken to try and claim that John McCain was not natural born citizen that had to be clarified in court.

        It’s somewhat surprising the honor system we have, when you have to demonstrate citizenship and identity for so many things. I think a birth certificate along with an independent health examination should be required to file to run for president. Perhaps we should have drug tests before and after debates, too.

    I understand Mr. Trump had to take a few days off from the campaign with his own health scare. He got a serious nose bleed when he took the moral high ground.
