Trump denies reading book he signed agreement to get
WND ^ | May 26, 2011 | WND

Posted on 05/26/2011 7:56:52 PM PDT by RobinMasters

WASHINGTON – Donald Trump today issued a written statement to the leftist Mother Jones magazine and other news outlets denying he told Jerome Corsi, author of a new bestselling book about Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility, he suspected the birth certificate released by the White House is fraudulent.

Trump also said he had not read Corsi's book, "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President," despite having his staff sign a non-disclosure agreement to get the book three weeks before it was released May 17.

Trump does not deny calling Corsi this week but claims in his statement it was only to congratulate him on the sales of his book.

However, Corsi says Trump repeated a conversation he had weeks ago in a conference call with WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah in which the building magnate said he is concerned about the validity of the document released April 27 by the Obama White House. Farah confirms Trump questioned the authenticity of the birth certificate and said others around him do as well.

I believe Donald Trump does what he says he will do. He had said when the latest documents were released by the White House that he hoped it was true...and that he was going to look at it.

I guess he did look at the document and found it lacking in validity....which so many others have.

WND has become about as believable as the Weekly World News. It’s only a matter of time before Bat Boy becomes part of the birth certificate conspiracy.

My hat remains off to Trump for exposing just another part of the total mess that we ended up with in the Oval Office. The level of fraud, deceit, and lies is unequaled in American history.

Trump ALWAYS denies reading or hearing about things he obviously has. You may fault Corsi for this book, but he did America a great service with his Swift Boat book in 2004. Has Trump ever done ANYTHING? Has he once visited our troops in Iraq or Afghanistan? Gary Sinise has gone there 20 times. Tim Pawlenty 7 times. Trump has unlimited resources and private jets, yet couldn’t manage it once, but thinks he would be a worthy be commander-in-chief?

Why won’t he re-ignite the issue if it’s a clear fraud? That tells me he is on the other side. Not surprising.
At the WHCD he looked pissed at being heckled by Osama/Obama. If he’d looked any other way he’d look like he was in cahoots. Just acting, like his whole life.
He’ll get some sort of casino bail-out soon, I think.

He has employees to read the book and make a report of what is significant?

I bought several copies of Corsi’s “not fit for service”

But WND has become little more than an outlet to hawk conspiricy’s and sell conspiracy books.

Trump doesn’t give credibility to the BC question....or TAKE from it.

“The Fraud” is a fraud.

This has been scrutinized for YEARS before Trump inserted himself into the subject. He’s only made himself suspect as to his motivation, now.

Awww Crap!

Trump distancing himself from Farah and Corsi means he's serious about a presidential run. As long as he hangs out with these two knuckleheads, he'll never get any real serious voter support. I was hoping they would all go on the Alex Jones show and “alternative media” themselves into obscurity.

At approx 6:50 minutes into Corsi’s radio interview he says that Trump admitted to recently receiving “60 million times 220 million” dollars ! Then Corsi said “No one offered me $120 million dollars recently...” So the exact amount wasn’t cleary indicated, but Corsi specifically referenced this as a “big payoff from NBC” and stated it “looks like you dropped out over that payoff in relationship to the White House...”

If this is true, sounds terribly incriminating for Trump. Sounds like they tempted The Donald right where is most vulnerable, his pocket book. I hope I’m wrong.

From MEDIAITE...

UPDATE: Well, it looks like I should have gone with my gut and been more suspicious of the lack of direct quotes in the WND post. Trump sent us a response that is printed in full below:

“I am proud of the fact that I was able to get President Obama to release his birth certificate. President Clinton couldn’t do it, Senator Mc Cain couldn’t do it—no one else could do it! Frankly, many people were surprised that it took so long for this to happen. Is his birth certificate legitimate? I hope it is for the good of the country, but that’s for experts to determine—not me. I have not read the book written by Jerry Corsi nor did we discuss whether or not the birth certificate was computer generated or in any way fabricated. I merely asked him how his book was doing and wished him good luck.”

http://www.mediaite.com/online/donald-trump-my-expert-says-obamas-birth-certificate-is-computer-generated/

That beep - beep - beep sound you hear is the Donald backing away from the Hoax-Huckster Brothers.

I started researching the candidates for Prez and VP in March, 2008, just as I’ve done every national election since 1976.

2008 was the first time information about one of the candidates was literally being wiped from the public forum as I did research. A newspaper would print an article and then it would disappear withing 24 hours.

I saved a great deal of information about Obama only to have my computer hacked and the contents of my hard drives stolen, then wiped clean. My nephew, an able and ethical hacker himself, followed the electronic trail to a Senate office building in Washington, D.C.

It was then I found websites containing facts about the past of Barak Hussein Obama II. His real name is Barry Soetoro and he has over three dozen SSNs.

There is no conspiracy. He is a con artist who went into politics using his wife’s political connections with the Daley Machine in Chicago to shield him from the law.

I bought Corsi’s book, which is well researched, and have been gratified that he has discovered everything that I had over the past three years, and then some.

I strongly suggest you read his book BECAUSE it is no longer a conspiracy, it is real and still happening.

If that's the case, then it sounds like Trump was playing pretty loose with the confidentiality agreement.

Trump had to have read the book. He made the birth certificate issue a big national issue. WND had been advertising the book for months. Trump gets a pre-release THREE WEEKS before the release date, and he doesn't read it?

It doesn't pass the smell test.

I'm beginning to think that Trump might be playing for the other team whether he knows it or not.

Yeah, a decade ago.

Today, WingNut Daily bears little resemblance to the site it started out as and an increasing resemblance to Alex Jones' Prison Planet or Infowars (where Corsi's latest book is a featured product right next to "There's Poison In The Tap Water" t-shirts).

Edwards campaign fraud & mistress - enquirer (or was it the globe?)

Vs.

CBS - Fake but real Bush AWOL papers
and silence or complicity in most matters relating to democrats in power

The truth is not exclusive to the major networks, or haven’t you noticed?

I think he has badly misjudged things here then. I was one of those who spoke well of him here. His disappearance is just too pat. He established himself as the uber-birther and now he has nothing to say? Uh, uh.

Trump is the cur that didn't bark.

Are you kidding? WND is a joke now. It's become World Birther Daily. The articles lately are mostly laughable attempts to get people to buy the Corsi/WND book. Just the other day I saw a commentary from WND by Farah linked here in which he proclaimed we may be witnessing the final days of the Barack Obama regime over the birth certificate. I mean come on, this stuff isn't just wrong it's down right stupid. Only completely fanatically blinded birther conspiracy theorists could possible believe there is even the slightest chance that Obama will be taken down by this nonsense.

I seem to remember years ago WND being a decent site, but nowadays it's just conspiracy theory central. I take it about as seriously as the Weekly World News. Both can be entertaining now and again, but you wouldn't actually trust anything they say.

Um... reality?

I can recall when "World Net Daily" was widely referred to as "World Nut Daily..." here on FR.

Then they come out with all the birther stuff, and because it's popular here, all of sudden they have pristine credibility among a lot of FReepers.

I personally have noted multiple errors of fact in their coverage of the issue. Best case scenario, they're not as careful with their facts and analysis as they need to be. Worst case scenario, they're deliberately fleecing you on the book sales and advertising on all the traffic generated to their site.

Maybe you should call that guy a troll and tell him to go back to DU.

WND is treated with credibility here by some whenever they are on those freeper’s side of an issue.

WND got a lot of support when they were on the “right” side of the Campeon/Ramos Border Patrol trial. They know how to pick the “right” side of issues that will get them money and support.
