Donald Trump's 'birther' antics means he has 'zero chance' to be president: David Plouffe
NY Daily News ^ | April 10th 2011 | BY Lukas I. Alpert

The White House dissed Donald Trump Sunday as a "sideshow" with "zero chance" of becoming president, while defending a last-minute budget deal as a necessary compromise.

Chief advisor David Plouffe unleashed a barrage of stinging comments on Trump, who has recently trafficked in fringe conspiracy theories about Obama's place of birth while taunting America with hints of a presidential run.

"There is zero chance that Donald Trump would ever be hired by the American people," Plouffe told ABC's "This Week with Christiane Amanpour."

"I saw Donald Trump kind of rising in the polls and given his behavior and spectacle the last couple of weeks, I hope he keeps rising," Plouffe added.

"There may be a small part of the country that believes these things, but mainstream Americans think it's a sideshow," he said. "That's not leadership, that's kind of sideshow behavior."

I would never trust the opinion of a guy named ‘Plouffe’.

Yep, I agree and if poufpouf is mentioning it, they must be worried since they are in full damage control mode.

“fringe” stats I’ve seen show one in four Americans have serious questions about it. And I admire Trump for stepping up and taking the heat. In a way it makes it easier for people like Palin and Huckabee to wade through that swamp. I like the theory that it says he was born in US but that his name was Steve Dunham.

Oh! they are now demonizing Mr. Trump as they’ve been demonizing Governor Palin. So he is a threat to them! Go Donald! Go Sarah!

OK y'all....we knew this was going to happen. Team stain kept quiet until they figured the "trumpster's" efforts were being believed by the general public.

Poofy has been chosen the spokesman...most likely by the "black widow" jenrette, for team stain.

Now...I know we've all been hoping and praying that the "trumpster" is not a "one shot" deal. As a presidential hopeful, he can't be.

Let's see which direction Mr. Trump takes this. One thing's for sure....he's got Team stain on the defensive...and at all costs, they must be kept there.

Chief advisor David Plouffe unleashed a barrage of stinging comments on Trump

So, why don't you just shut him up and produce a birth certificate, explanation of multiple SS numbers, etc.?

HMMM?

Hell, I'm just Joe Schmoe, and I can produce a certified BC, military records, passport, tax records, you name it. What the problem?
