Skip to comments.Donald Trump ready to ‘look at’ Obama’s birth certificate (Wants to see academic records, too)
Posted on 04/27/2011 8:12:58 AM PDT by Zakeet
Donald Trump is really proud and really honored to have been the game changer in getting President Obama to finally release his long-form birth certificate on Wednesday morning.
Trump said he was really honored to have really played to have played a really big role in hopefully, hopefully, getting rid of this issue.
Touching down in New Hampshire for a few private meetings, Trump held a press conference at local airport to discuss the just-released documents. While he still needs to look at it,"
Trump said he hopes the release of the certificate will put to rest not just any debate about the Presidents legitimacy but also the inquisition by journalists who have grilled Trump about his public remarks regarding the certificate.
Trump has already released his own birth certificate and told George Stephanopoulos he that would release his much-discussed financial records (Trump has reportedly experienced a couple bankruptcies and a fluctuating wealth) after Obama released his birth certificate.
Trump said We have to look at it. Is it real? Is it prop? but again expressed his desire to move on to discuss other issues including why Obama has not released his poor, according Trump academic records.

I'm not gonna release my financial records before I get a real good look at the Wee Wee's pedigree papers ...
He’s playing a foil for the democrats.
They are using this to defuse controversy.
It works well. BUT, it is way to early in the election cycle to matter.
The only thing that EVER matters to the voters is their own self-interest in their pocket books.
Hilarious. This guy isn’t taking a break. I love how Trump, after a victory speech, is moving on to the collage records You have to just love how Trump has this loser against the ropes and just keeps pummeling him. Fun.
If The Donald does not make a big stink about this, it means he's a stalking-horse for Hussein, meant to inoculate him from further birth certificate inquiries.
Journalism is dead and no politician has said hardly a word about this other than Trump. Cowards and liars.
Pres. Obama releases his birth certificate... the question now is why did he spend millions of dollars trying not to release it?
Trump made them buckle. He truly is a master negotiator. He probably should be putting together deals for the country. He’s obviously very effective. He did in 6 weeks what no one else was able to do in almost 3 years
(I posted this on another thread but it seemed appropriate for this thread as well)
Wait, this was Trump's sole issue. He won, you mean he is not going away now? More of this silliness is coming?
I wonder how that army of investigators are doing. in Hawaii. No wonder Trump refused to answer in that CNN interview what 'they found' after he claimed he cant believe what they are digging up. Now it time for Trump to put out what he claims his investigators found there.
He spent millions and sat and watched a man get convicted in a military court, serve time in a military prison and will be shortly dishonorably discharged. Let’s never forget that.
Pass the Cheetos, this is great!
The way I see it, the Obama re-election committee just made Trump the most powerful Republican presidential candidate by releasing a birth certificate. Apparently they think that’s a good move.
They also probably figure that this will debunk the “birthers”. What about the “hiders”? Glad Trump has now moved on to the college records.
While watching the Obama presser this morning, I felt like I was watching the movie “Idiocracy”.....He has people’s business to take care of, like flying to Chicago today for a taping of the Oprah show.
Since the days of LBJ using an entire floor of the OEOB for his personal staff, allowing him to run his business affairs while in office, I don’t see Trump making a serious run the the presidency. There’s no way he would leave all the irons he has in the fire in the hands of any of his most trusted officers, including his son and daughter.
If he’s serious...he could say:
“I got Obama to release his BC. Nobody else could. If I can make a sitting US President provide what I’m asking for, imagine what I can convince OPEC, or China, to do for us.”
You have people now out there searching I mean, in Hawaii?
Absolutely. And they cannot believe what theyre finding. And Im serious
Trump: My investigators in Hawaii cant believe what they are finding (The Right Scoop on Apr 6, 2011)
Your turn to put up Trump ....
Let’s verify the ORIGINAL, not some fax copy. Age verification of the original document.
Right. And I think this has done exactly that ... majorly EXPOSED all of them as frauds and liars, as well as incompetent in their jobs.
....But isn’t that what Donald does best? Expose incompetency?
Hey Obama! How about a apology to the military officer you let sit in prison?What was the point of that? PATHETIC.
But later in the Corsi Drudge banner/link to Amazon, it stated that ‘when Trump said he had investigators in Hawaii, this is what they found.’ Certainly implied, outright stated, that Trump’s ‘investigators’ were those working for Corsi.
They had to get ahead of this issue a bit. The book is #1 on Amazon and Latkin will be coming home. They wanted it to be a dead issue by then. MSM, always ready to help Obama, will do the best they can to mollify the masses.
Obama called him a carnival barker. Waiting for fur to fly.
Was it not just 2 days ago that in conjunction with twinkle toes Cooper and part of CNN's agenda in declaring the "issue is settled" when arguing with Trump....
....as well as Hawaii's Atty General Office and Dept of Health who....
... as reported widely, asserted that Obama's "long-form birth certificate," is a confidential one-page document containing his original birth records kept on file in the first floor of the Department of Health...
HOWEVER, those documents are state government property that can't be released to anyone, even the president himself, said Joshua Wisch, special assistant to the state attorney general. Obama would be able to inspect his birth records if he visited the Health Department in person, but original records of live birth are never released, he said.??
So, HOW did Dear Leader manage to overcome Hawaii's Laws and get a copy of his BC?
Actually Obama and his handlers have been the chess masters. They purposely strung this BC release out to build up a conservative clamor and get public attention. Releasing the BC now makes his opposition look like kooks, gives him credibility, and in an oblique manner, somewhat legitimizes his policies. This is exactly what we don't need. Any further probing of his past will now appear to be a wild witch hunt. Sadly, Obama won this one.
A review of his record and transparency will be a good thing. Can't wait to see the college records next.
Or as the president said, “the stuff”. incidentally, the lack of a birth certificate was not silliness. It was a serious qualification. Good for Donald Trump! He did it!
Maybe, it's about his poor school performance?
“Trump made them buckle. He truly is a master negotiator. He probably should be putting together deals for the country. Hes obviously very effective. He did in 6 weeks what no one else was able to do in almost 3 years”
Obama handed Trump a win. Why? I suspect that they would love him to be the Repub candidate. The man has not been vetted or examined that closely. Think of the potential scandals yet uncovered. Girlfriends, cheating in marriage, sleazy business deals, tax issues. Who knows? Maybe they did a little digging a found a goldmine of scandals to run against.
Why, it’s the same document Obama has been trying to pass off the last few days.
I know it's frowned upon here to agree with Obama on anything but.... LOL
I agree with your comment.
Obama: “I got better stuff to do.”
Obama’s schedule today..
Fly to Chicago to tape Oprah.
Fly to NYC for 3 fundraisers.
“They had to get ahead of this issue a bit. The book is #1 on Amazon and Latkin will be coming home. They wanted it to be a dead issue by then. MSM, always ready to help Obama, will do the best they can to mollify the masses.”
I agree. First, The Donald was needling Zero constantly about hiding his past and it was having an effect. Next up was the release of Corsi’s book. The release of the COLB was an effort to take some of the air out of what was turning into real pressure on Zero to address what he was trying to hide.
But unless Obummer releases everything, he will continue to be nagged about his missing past. A big impression has been made on millions of Americans now that the guy is a fraud. Axelhead has his work cut out for him.
You too got it right! “Obama didn’t release anything new. He released the same old COLB.
If The Donald does not make a big stink about this, it means he’s a stalking-horse for Hussein, meant to inoculate him from further birth certificate inquiries.”
Unfortunatley, 80% of the brain-dead public wqill swallow the ruse.
re TRUMP: I have had a niggling suspicion from the get go, considering his deep ties, contributions predominantly to dems and an avid support of madame Hitlery, that he is a shill - the plan being to make a big kerfuffle over the birth cert issue now and getting it out of the way, only to settle the issue by The Won releasing such a document as he has now done - which is, again, ONLY a COLB - NOT a long form BC! (and no border and no seal - and the father’s RACE still listed as African - which is NOT a RACE. People of all races are born in Africa. Race would be listed as, in 1961, probably not black but negro - but definitely NOT African. (Anyone who deals with such records can see the discrepancies, but the general, brain-dead public will not.)
Trump on Wednesday took full credit for the release.
“I feel I’ve accomplished something really really important and I’m honored by it,” Trump said at a press conference held during his pre-scheduled visit today to New Hampshire. Trump noted that people have long been requesting the document, but Trump was the only one who got the president to release it.”
So now, Mission Accomplished? Trump preens that he’s forced The Won to release proof of citizenship, the press will run with it, the general public will swallow it whole, and anyone who still pursues this issue will be scoffed at, not knowing the difference has ALWAYS been about the long form BC versus a COLB, which anyone can have issued in any country, regardless of where born. BTW, the first so-called COLB that they released a couple years ago showed his grandmother’s signature as the person registering the COLB. This one shows his mother’s name as the one registering it. Anyone care about the difference? No, I didn’t think so.
In addition, ignored all along is the fact that - if his father is indeed BHO, sr, then his father was a British citizen - making his son ineligible. (requires both parents to be citizens.) That is also being totally ignored.
But The ruse will now be laid to rest, well before the election. None will now question why he has spent millions to keep his records buried. Anyone who continues to call for his travel/college/selective service/social security numbers/passports/travel names/reason his law degree was rescinded - will be laughed out of existence.
Will The Donald now be getting lucrative govt favors and contracts down the line, like Perot, for performing this thinly disguised dog and pony show for them?
For me, my early suspicions about The Donald were confirmed when he said that if he didn’t win the republican primary, he’d run as an independent. No real conservative would do that, ala Perot, splitting the vote insuring a win for The Won. (It was the strategy that put bubba back in office with only 47% of the vote. They know The Won is likely to lose in 2012 - UNLESS they can split the vote. The naivete of the public is their biggest asset and our biggest enemy. They know how to exploit it.
I submit that The Donald is not but a shill. He played his part well. We have just taken a big hit. We still don’t - and won’t - have the birth certificate - but 80% of the public will believe we do. 80% of the public will still believe whatever the press tells them. They have no education in the history of the world and the age old machinations of the players in politics - no inkling of the convoluted, lying schemes carried out by very real, evil people who say one thing but are doing the opposite behind closed doors.
Hopefully, a few states will follow through with passing a law requiring proof of eligibility with a long form BC.
Yep. I sure hope he has something.
All Trump is going to see is the same thing we all saw over a year ago. A COLB and a photo copy of a Birth Certificate without the State Seal on it. When was the COLB produced and given to Obama?
If Trump could get Obama to cave and release his birth certificate, why couldn’t the republicans get the dems to cave in to bigger budget cuts?
Perhaps he found it in his grandmother’s attic.
at least this time it looks like they found a typewriter that actually existed in 1961...
Maybe it is time for Trump to put up or shut up, now.
If all Trump has is a Obama report card with a C- in it after accusing him of being ineligible to be president, which would have been serious, he will look even dumber than he does now. And those that believed him will look even worse because at least Trump can be defended as a con man who doesnt believe anything he says but plays the suckers.
I agree that trump is a buffoon but I don’t have a problem with what obama submitted if it turns out to be legit. It is a birth certificate from the time period and has all the necessary info. If it is legit then the BC issue is closed. Trump did not even raise the rest of the NBC issue regarding hussein’s father, citizenship isses etc. Unortunately the whole NBC issue has been framed by trump as being just about a BC. Big mistake because the other NBC will not even get discussed. Its over now. Some can continue to hammer them but it will go nowhere.
See, even YOU are swallowing the hype. Even this is NOT a birth certificate!
It's another COLB - Certificate of Live Birth...merely a statement that a bab y was born alive.
This is a certificate that can be issued for any baby in any country, regardless of where they were born.
It is NOT a BC with the framed form of Hawaii, it does not have a seal, and the race of father is still listed as "African."
African is NOT a RACE. Will people please learn that? Anyone born is Africa is "African" - signifying CITIZENSHIP - not RACE. People of many races are born in Africa. In addition, Africa is not a country, but a continent. So his father's citizenship is "Kenyan."
The first fake COLB they put out a couple years ago has his gramdmothers signature as the person registering it.This one has his mother's name as the person registering it. No one bothers to question the difference?
Again, this is only a COLB, signifying a baby was born live. It's NOT a birth certificate. And even now, the information is totally suspect.
But the general public will take it at face value and the press will pound it home.And the issue will be, for the most part, laid to rest and out of the way for the electon. p>Trump has carried out his mission for the dems. Trump=Trojan Horse.
Why did he wait so long? It would be more believable if it had at least something a little embarrassing.
Obama and his handlers didn’t learn anything from Clinton and Dick Morris. Every horrible scandal of Clinton had a lesser scandal that they could push forward Whitewater and Chinagate -> promote it wasn’t sex. I know there were several of these, but I choose to black them out of my memory.
The disgrace, if this is a real BC, is that he took so long, spent so much money, and ruined so many honorable lives by not just releasing the stupid little thing.
Gov. Abercrombie wasn’t able to find this, but something “written down”? Are they kidding us? However, they were able to stall 2.5 years with the fraudulent COLBs, so I guess they figure the media will cover them for another year with this paper.
There should be federal investigators tearing through Hawaii’s archives, the hospitals, and the news papers. If we had a government we could trust, they would investigate and get to the bottom of Barry and who he is.
This is a calculated distraction to throw a large part of his opposition in disarry. I think he puporsely kept this info hidden to do this and now that people of some prominence have been raising the issue BO and company became afraid that the situation was getting out of control and could work against them so they released the cert. Now he is keeping his school records away from the public to cause futher distraction. The fight is on. The carnival barker vs the flim flam man.
Obama didn’t win.. If the cert is real, Donald got Obongo to shoot a bullet out of his political gun that he was saving for later.. if it is proven to be a fake .. O noes for him.
I don’t believe he has released anything new. This is another fabricated document.
