Trump: “Somebody” told me that Obama’s birth certificate is missing or doesn’t exist

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…

Even to get onto your mother's pp, as I was as a baby you need to have a birth certificate.

“Maybe Trump has just been bluffing through this whole thing. If so, he is going to look pretty stupid.”

No, he is not bluffing. It is not going to be today or tomorrow. He is waiting for the exact moment when he can do the greatest damage to that cheeky Kenyan bastard from which the cheeky one will not be able to recover.


No, Trump will not be looking stupid.

NO THEY ARE NOT. Their parents would not be U.S. citizens. So “Anchor Babies” would not be “Natural Born Citizens”

Let's elect one and find out for certain. You might be surprised.

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.

Trump has been talking to Hawaii Gov. Abercrombie, evidently!

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 are a LOT of people who are terrified of the thought of Leavenworth.

Trump is a fraud. How do we know if he even has investigators in Hawaii? He’s playing conservatives and he knows they’ll believe anything he says.

At some point he’s going to have to produce the goods if he wants to be taken seriously.

Yep and also Trump is a very rich man and if he did not have some proof of what he is saying he would shut up. He could be sued and he knows that. The man is not stupid also somebody is afraid of him or they would have shut him up long ago in other words he knows something.

Sure hope Trump is spending some of his investigative resources on a search in Mombasa or however you spell it and searching for people there who might have memory of evidence suggesting that creep was born there. Same with Canada and Indonesia as well. ALso-since Hawaii is keeping so quiet, perhaps Nancy Pelosi can come up with a BC since she qualified that communist for the presidential run.

If his gramma said Mombasa was his birth city and there is a sign in Kenya pronouncing itself as obama's birthplace (who made this sign, who authorized, who is involved with this sign and why did they make it in the first place?), and his brother lives there (half bro I guess-we never get to hear from him) and his aunt or whatever is from there and living here on the dole...whatever. Seems like there are a lot of people left to talk to (maybe even some that have not been contacted and warned by uhbama's thugs)

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.


I think you have to show your long form birth certificate before you can join the Taliban, and before you are allowed into terrorist school in the middle east.

Are you about that? Immigrants to the US don’t have a BC. Like Barack, they had to use their Certificate of Naturalization to prove their US citizenship to get their passport.

You would think with the phenomenon of leaks (wiki leaks has tons of stuff) that someone in Hawaii would leak something definitive if they could ....I wonder what the going rate for a legit Obama BC would be?
