Trump: “Somebody” told me that Obama’s birth certificate is missing or doesn’t exist
Hotair ^ | 04/26/2011 | Allahpundit

Posted on 04/26/2011 5:22:04 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

How eager is CNN for a Trump/Birther traffic windfall? Not only did they rush a story about this “scoop” onto their website hours before Cooper’s show airs, they posted a sneak preview of the exchange to entice viewers to watch. Who can resist a rainbow of extra page views? Not I, my friends, not I.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump’s latest claim about President Obama’s birth certificate is that it’s missing.

“Well I’ve been told very recently, Anderson, that the birth certificate is missing,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday. “I’ve been told that it’s not there or it doesn’t exist. And if that’s the case it’s a big problem.”

When asked from whom he received the information, Trump said he didn’t want to say and that he feels bad about the situation.

He feels bad because he’d much prefer to talk about the important policy issues facing the country, every one of which turns out to be “so easy” to solve. He also digressed from his pursuit of a serious policy debate in an interview with the AP today to say that he’s heard Obama was a “terrible student, terrible” while at Columbia and Harvard. And he reassured the Des Moines Register that “Iowa is very, very important to me” and that “I’m a very conservative person. Extremely conservative.” So there you go. You’re now caught up on Trump news.

Exit question: Should we start a pool on when he’ll reveal the findings of his investigators? I’ll take “during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.” Unless we nominate him, we’ll never know the truth…

Perhaps the Mombassa [kenya] authorities are lax on providing COLBs?

Didn’t Gov Abercrombie tell everyone this tidbit of information at a public news conference? The Gov of Hawaii started off promising that he would find the birth certificate and then said that he couldn’t, because it just wasn’t there.

I saw part of that interview last night from Anderson Cooper. I thought Cooper was being fair to him and gave him every chance to answer the questions. They were simple questions, who has your investigators talked to in Hawaii about the birth certificate. Is there an active investigation? etc... Trump would not answer anything. I’m glad that Trump is out there hammering Obama about his birth certificate, but more and more Trump is looking like a fraud.

Donald Trump

born June 14, 1946 in Queens, New York, NY (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)

Parents were
Frederick Christ Trump, born October 11, 1905 in Queens, NY, died June 1999 in Queens, NY
Mary Ann MacLeod, born May 10, 1912 in SCOTLAND, died August 7, 2000 in Queens, NY. Arrived in US October 5, 1935. Naturalized as a US Citizen March 10, 1942.

Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)

Donald Trump is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Comrade Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.

Possibly. But I don’t think so. I think he is waiting for something, but I don’t know what.

The Original Long Form BC was sealed and archived when the Soetoro adoption was finalized.

Where he was born is immaterial. Obama could have been born on a crowded NY city street, with hundreds of witnesses and his picture in the paper.

He’s not qualified, as he is not a Natural Born American - his mother is a US citizen, but his father is not.

Consider, under the given ‘watering-down’ of our Constitution, literally MILLONS of Mexican “Anchor Babies” are now qualified to hold the position of POTUS.

I think there are a LOT of people who realize the mega constitutional crisis this would cause and are afraid of it.

I think there would be far less longer term damage if this fraud were exposed and procedures put in place to prevent it in the future, but...

given the ideological makeup of the left and right,
there is MINISCULE possibility this would affect a conservative (someone who has an AMERICAN point of view),
vs the high likelihood of affecting a leftist candidate (who inherently would have an anti-American point of view).

This is probably the biggest pushback from the left - they WANT non-American loyalties to have power in our country.

Donald Trump is just as bad as the Hawaii supporters of Obama.

Obama’s supporters claim to have “Seen” his Long Form Birth Certificate but will not show it.

Now we have Trump giving us this mysterious “somebody” as if doing so will make him credible...

What a show !!

The birth certificate is as elusive as osama bin laden. I wonder which one will be found first; maybe when they find obl; he will have the birth certificate.

Ditto.

Attacking O's false biography is a very good thing. However, if Trump doesn't deliver some goods it could backfire.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Trump either has an oil tanker full of Obama’s personal sludge to dump on the media, or he is being very stupid. It's one or the other.

Trump has a lot to lose by taking on the birther issue and by attacking Obama. There is no way that doing so would help him in his business adventures. He needs big city Democrat cooperation just to get the needed zoning and building permits to move forward on his projects. Internationally, he needs the support of the Marxist progressives, as well.

Trump did not get where he is by being stupid. Personally, I am enjoying the show. Trump has kicked the birther ant hill and it has been fun watching the Marxist media and conservative pundits run around like crazy looking for cover.

“How did he get a US passport?”

BHO was listed as a dependent family member on his mother’s passport until she had him removed from it and identified him as Soebarkah, Indonesian national.

You are right Abercrummy said it appears there is no BC but there is a notation written down in the archives somewhere. I know I felt better when I heard that. LOL!

I’ll bet Trump’s guys have talked with that college professor who was working as an elections supervisor in HI in 2008. He has said numerous times that he was told by the records dept in HI that they did not have a BC for Barry.

Doesn't the MSM use expressions like "some say X" or "experts tell us that Y is true" where X and Y are extremely controversial and upsetting propositions?

Aren't they allowed to get away with that pretty much every day of the week?

And now, all of a sudden, Donald Trump makes an assertion that the MSM doesn't like, and it's "oh, where's your proof, you awful man."

Sorry, I'm not impressed.

It's not like Trump's saying anything that numerous other people have said.

And Obama could poleaxe the whole controversy in five minutes by releasing his LFBC. How is Obama's refusal to do this simple thing Donald Trump's fault?

This morning Imus has been showing clips of Shep Smith revealing that they had a copy of the "real" birth certificate last night on his show. He said that Fox news has confirmed President Obama was born in Hawaii and held up the "birth certificate" to prove it. So there it is, Shep Smith says Obammy was born in Hawaii and is a citizen of the US so we can all move on now. Thanks Sheppy and Fox News for setting the record straight.

Recently there was talk that Trump is investigating the findings of the upcoming Corsi book. If that’s indeed true, Trump may not be at liberty to reveal what he know until the book hits.

Tim Adams, the professor you are referring to, not only SAID but also SIGNED an affadavit under the threat of perjury. Has Okubo/Fukino et al ever done that? Np, just press releases and comments attributed to them by local media.

Desperados! Obama disseminating copies of his short form COLB to the various media outlets in order to do his bidding. Obama is truly in DEEP TROUBLE if he is relying on public opinion to look past this issue (as well as other potential criminal acts committed by him).

Most of the time old records like that are microfilmed instead of/in addition to their paper records. Did a whole reel of microfilm disappear from the records? Are there no Honolulu long form certificates for the entire year 1961? Is this why Hawaii no longer produces copies of anyone's long form certificates to hide which ones are missing?

You would think so, but you would be wrong.

When I was a young boy in Mr. Hanson’s fifth grade civics class in the mid-60s, we learned that the definition of “natural born Citizen” was exclusively a person born on US soil of parents who are US citizens.

That has been the accepted definition of “natural born Citizen” for most of our history, except between the years 1790-1795, and 1971 to the present.
