I’m temporarily without audio. Anyone volunteer to give us a capsule summary of what CNBC and Trump had to say?
The talk again is starting to get louder as we get closer to Sheriff Arpaio’s upcoming press conference.
Also go to 3:00 and notice he is also talking about the college transcripts.
Some of what Donald Trump said in today’s CNBC 4 minute interview:
His mother was never in the hospital; they don’t even know which hospital it was; his grandmother said he was born in Kenya. Now look, it all wouldn’t matter except if you’re born in another country. ... You’re not allowed to be president if you are born in another country.
The publisher comes out last week and makes this statement, we made a mistake. I don’t think life works that way. ... There are some major questions here. The press just refuses to cover it; they don’t want to cover it. If that was somebody else, they would be covering it and they would be throwing people out of office. ...They [the press]get angry if you even suggest any of these things.
This is crazy and not standing up for Trump, as it seems, it has been Obama out there telling 2 different episodes of where he was born, than now it is on him to clarify/verify the truth. And that’s the only place where the media should inquire an answer they can report.
The MSM IS public enemy #1. Without the Communist MSM, there wouldn't be a usurper! I have no doubt that their day of reckoning is coming sooner than they expect.
Thank you, Red Steel.
Mark to read later......
I’m not coming to any conclusions about this yet, until I see how it works out.
Trump SEEMS to be damaging Obama. But the last time around, I was suspicious, and sure enough, Obama used it as an excuse to post another fake online COLB and then distracted attention with bin Ladin. It worked, and the end result was that the birther issue was off the table.
Trump has donated almost entirely to Democrats in the past, or to a few RINOs. And it wasn’t that long ago that he declared that he was a Democrat again.
I don’t know what he’s up to, but I’m reserving judgment on this. Also, once again, the left wing media are lending him air time. That suggests that Obama MIGHT be orchestrating something again.
I’m a birther myself. I just don’t really trust Trump. Maybe this is planned to undermine some sort of Arpaio release that they’re afraid of, altnough so far they’ve pretty much been able to get the media to ignore Arpaio or mock him.
My theory is that Trump selected Arsenio Hall as 'Celebrity Apprentice' to appease the black community prior to relentlessly laying into 0bama and his eligibility status. I know I'll get bashed for saying this and we all know Trump is an opportunist, but our private sector DOES need someone at the top who can re-energize it and Trump would do just that. HE COMMANDS RESPECT and promotes American exceptionalism. I think just his mere presence as VP would see a huge wave of entrepreneurship, upstarts, hiring, and a return to manufacturing; The rebirth of America's private sector and return to economic greatness.
That's not such an impossibility, is it?
I want Paul Ryan as VP but hell, I'll take Trump too.
Has anyone noticed if BO’s facial tic has returned? When the transcript is available please ping me. Dad reads better than he hears.
“I think Trump is riding the coattails of Arpaio’s investigation and upcoming press conference scheduled for June.”
Possibly. But I’ve been hoping that maybe Trump is supplying the private jet to get the Cold Case Posse back safely from Hawaii and perhaps helping to fund this project — someone is paying for it.
As far as I know, he declared he was a Republican last year and hasn't reneged on that. Apparently, he was supporting Romney pretty much throughout the GOP primary season, and with Romney's nomination will stay a Republican and support Romney at least through the November election.
Obama’s whining has also moved up a tick while on the campaign trail. Keep observing him HM. :-)
IMO The Danald and Mittens are from the same business cloth....checkered or plaid.
White House Obama watchers report that the tic has indeed returned. Just kidding! For some reason your question made me think of those Kremlin Watchers the media used to employ, to scrutinize all public appearances of Bresnev and the rest for clues - or maybe it was the CIA doing it. It was pretty cool - but I wouldn’t want to be the one that had to watch PBO all day and all night. Wouldn’t want to have to watch that serpent for nuthin.
CNBC has a fair number of conservatives including Kernan, Santelli, and Caruso-Cabrera
Trump knows which party can be bought. He'll spend money for its return....even if it means buying a few politicians. Look at a list of who got the contributions....Probably not a list that would be honorable to be on.
BUT there is no doubt in my mind that Trump loves America and her system....
Yeah, sorry, I guess Trump left the GOP last December and said he was an Independent, not a Democrat.
Maybe at that time it didn’t look as if Mittens was going to be the candidate, and now he’s angling for VP or who knows what?
I cannot view video.
Who is the CNBC interviewer — and what time of day was it on?
—The guess here is that the CNBC guy who interviewed Trump is not going to last very long there.—
I have to agree, and for a single reason: The guy really sounded tongue tied at first. Maybe he’ll get better, but I don’t know how much time they give them. I was only listening and it really sounded like amateur hour.
The white Kenyan has something to hide, and since he has successfully dispatched the issue of needing 2 citizen parents to be eligible for POTUS due to the lack of courage from our representatives and judges, he still needs to establish that he was born on US soil. So it must be the fact that he cant legitimately prove that he was born in this country aside from records written down in the HI state archives...
F Chuck Todd OPENED his show today, hysterical that Romney won’t disavow Donald on the birther issue. I didn’t realize this was the most important story over the Memorial Day Weekend.
The story use to be treated as a joke. Now it’s giving F Chuck the vapors.
part was Andrew Ross Sorkin and part was Joe Kernan
Maybe he's campaigning for Mitt and it's a two-fer for him. 1) he damages the usurper and 2) he gets that all important camera time which he craves.
I have to agree, and for a single reason: The guy really sounded tongue tied at first. Maybe hell get better, but I dont know how much time they give them. I was only listening and it really sounded like amateur hour.
Believe it or not, that guy has been on the CNBC for years and gets a ton of air time. Actually, he is usually pretty good, This subject must have left him speechless.
Only the really cool people are birthers.
If you are not a birther - just watch...and learn.
Romney Reaffirms Support
Reaffirms support for what ???
Willard has been mocking the birthers and claiming that as far as hes concernede Obama was born in Hawaii and is eligible to be POTUS and his eligibility shouldnt be questioned ...
What flop is he flipping now ???
LoL. Flop sweat F. Chuck Todd.
The owners and power behind the media need to be vetted as helping perpetuate Obama fraud.
I can’t believe they aired this on CNBC. Trump was excellent.
Only a handful of men who tell you and their employees what is "news" and what is not.
—Believe it or not, that guy has been on the CNBC for years and gets a ton of air time. Actually, he is usually pretty good, This subject must have left him speechless.—
I didn’t realize he’d been there a while.
The left wing host hasn’t heard about this because his show is the only one he watches.
They are all over Romney for Trump seeking the truth. Romney will lose propaganda war if they don't start pushing back to the hypocrisy.
“art was Andrew Ross Sorkin and part was Joe Kernan”
Thanks. the only part of CNBC I watch but missed this. Kernan and Becky are fine but Sorkin is a twirp. I love the way Kernan makes fun of him from time to time.
Is Sorkin the one that people are commenting on that was rather “tongue tied”? Last question, I promise.
I’m not sure.
Nobody “interviews” Trump, you just have to stand aside while he machine guns @ 1000 rounds per minute with his mouth.
I don’t like Sorkin either, he’s a New York Times writer liberal.
The truth is Obama should never have been in office in the first place.
...TRUMP......"Many people do not think [his birth certificate] was authentic," Trump said. "Frankly, if you would report it accurately, you would probably get better ratings than you're getting."
The Obama machine is trying to stop the messenger. The Kenyan pamphlet is a bid deal.
I agree. Naysayers/doom/n/gloom people who say “we’ll never know” have very dark glasses on that they need to take off. I think the Zero peeps are scared and getting desperate. They’re not fangless but they ARE outnumbered!
And I include the MSM in the above group!
But Ive been hoping that maybe Trump is supplying the private jet to get the Cold Case Posse back safely from Hawaii and perhaps helping to fund this project someone is paying for it.
Really? The possee has a private jet back to AZ??? That is excellent news, I was quite worried about their return trip.
You may have something there. Lefty MSM types tend to be arrogant and insulated.
No so fast yet. There's still a lot of important work to do in HI.
They're already up to their Axelrod, but just keep digging deeper hoping they wake up or someone will “say it isn't so”. Liberals have invested a great deal of time, money (change) in that pit and there is absolutely no room left under the vehicle. INTERVENTION is needed, who better then The Donald to say “you're fired”!
"At one point during the exchange, Blitzer told Trump he was "beginning to sound a little ridiculous."
"You are, Wolf," Trump shot back. "Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous." "
The publisher comes out last week and makes this statement, we made a mistake. I dont think life works that way. ... There are some major questions here. The press just refuses to cover it; they dont want to cover it. If that was somebody else, they would be covering it and they would be throwing people out of office. ..
Seems more than one publisher made the exact same mistake. If one publisher said, "Kenya' and another said, 'France' the 'mistake' would seem more believable. But for all of them to say 'Kenya'? Feels like a lie.
And you're right about the 'press'.. they should be ashamed of themselves.
