Trump to Malzberg: I Was Vilified for Obama ‘Birther’ Challenge
Newmax ^ | Feb, 4 2013 | Todd Beaman

Posted on 02/05/2013 9:03:14 AM PST by Codetrader

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump told veteran radio broadcaster Steve Malzberg on Monday that he was vilified by the mainstream media for offering to donate $5 million to charity if President Barack Obama released his college transcripts.

“They all came to his defense: ‘How dare Trump do that?’” Trump said on the premiere of “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV in New York. “It was $5 million that can go to Sandy, but I would’ve been willing to pay much, much more than that.

“It was incredible,” Trump added. “It’s absolutely incredible how he’s protected.”

During the 2012 presidential campaign, Trump launched a controversial “birther’’ campaign against President Obama, claiming that Obama was not born in Hawaii.

He offered $5 million to the charity of Obama’s choice if he produced his college records among others.

The president laughed off the challenge on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," saying that his disagreements with Trump dated “back to when we were growing up together in Kenya.”

But the real estate mogul told Malzberg on Monday that he was still shocked that Obama declined the offer, especially since it was for charity.

“I offered him $5 million if he showed, just showed, these college transcripts and also some documentation. Very simple stuff. Passport documentation. And he didn’t do it,” Trump said. “Then, I gave him a certain number — and I said I would raise it very, very substantially from $5 million, and he still didn’t do it.”

The mainstream media “thought it was terrible that I had asked for that,” Trump added. “He could’ve made a lot of money for showing a few documents — literally, a few pages worth of documents and maybe some passport documentation.”

Poor little Trump. Everyone is so mean.....Lord if you wouldn’t present it the way you did, it might have been a better outcome for you. You build this huge momentum and then when you present the evidence, it is basically comical. You did that many times over the year so you are now the laughingstock that you made yourself. You could have handled 2012 MUCH differently but your arrogance did not allow for it.

How long will these records be sealed? Will history be denied the full disclosure of Obama’s records? I think not. Eventually they will be disclosed, but maybe not in his lifetime.

Oh you Trump lovers are even worse than the Romney lovers or maybe you are one in the same. Trump was a complete fool and assisted in costing us the election by his STUPID nonsense of building up something supposedly big and costly to the President only to find out he had NOTHING. Go ahead and honor your Trump and Romney types. I will keep with Santorum, Palin and Bachmann who are REAL conservatives.

“Didnt Trump sign off on that birth certificate, then go back to his TV show?”

Trump accepted Obama’s COLB as proof Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961. Later, Trump offered $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice (offer later revised to exclude Rev. Wright’s charity) if Obama would make his college transcripts and complete passport records available for public inspection.

Trump gets it. Obama’s ineligibility is exposed in documentation developed post-1961. Each time an eligibility challenger demands documentation from Obama with a post-1961 origination date, Obots refer back to the COLB dated Aug 4, 1961 to prove Obama is eligible.

You can say what you will. I like CBS and will say it daily if that makes you happy. I love NCIS, NCIS LA, Survivor and many other CBS shows that are offered. You don’t have to at all. I am not a follower. If I see someone on either side of the poltical spectrum doing something stupid, I will say so or if they are doing something good, I will say so. Followers like yourself probably find that just awful. Sorry about that but you are free to be told how to think for the rest of your life. Leave me out of it.

Mayhaps he’s busy searching for Obama’s school records that Trump asked for. Should be an easy $5-mil score.

I am sure that was a cut and paste from someone else. Although I do hate Romney so I might have typed it....August? lol. I knew Romney was a failure from day one and you Romney lovers slobbering all over him made me sick. You ruined 2012 election completely! Anyway what I said is true by the way even if you are taking a few sentences to make your agenda just like you liberals do all the time.

napscoordinator, direct or implied support for Obama, invalid blame on cut-and-paste, “equalizer” propaganda... such behavior is not well tolerated here from what I have observed — but I certainly do not pretend to speak for the owner of FR (please forgive me if I am speaking out of place, thank you).

There is no direct or implied support for Obama. However, I hope you freaks don’t support another RINO like you did the last election.....I understand you both are ready to slobber all over yourselves with the prospect of Jeb Bush as our nominee in 2016. I will put it out here now....I WILL NOT SUPPORT JEB BUSH....You can cut and paste this so you can complain in 2015 when I bash everything I can with regard to Jeb Bush. I will again support the conservative in the race. Will you? Or are you both too worried about me saying that Mrs. Obama eating a hamburger is ok???? Your priorities suck that is for sure.
