Skip to comments.Video: Trump argues with CNN anchor over Birtherism. He's up in the GOP polls too.

He argued about it with Meredith Vieira on the Today Show this morning too but Suzanne Malveaux was better prepared for him this afternoon.
Three things here.
One: I’m not sure why he thinks it’s so far-fetched that Neil Abercrombie, the new governor of Hawaii, would remember Obama as an infant. Granted, it’s an amazing coincidence that they’re both now prominent Democrats, but Obama Sr. and his wife must have made quite the striking couple in the early 60s when interracial marriage was still illegal in many states. I’ll bet a lot of people who met them and their little one at the time remember them.
Two: Unless Trump’s thinking of some other interview with Obama’s grandmother, Malveaux’s right that the whole “she admits he was born in Kenya!” meme is based on a misunderstanding. You can read the transcript of the key part of that interview here. She’s also right that some of The One’s childhood friends have reminisced about him publicly, contra what Trump claimed not long ago on “The View” about no one in his past remembering him (He seems to have dropped that talking point now.) If he’s serious about building a base by impressing Birthers, you would think he’d see these factual challenges coming and be ready to parry them.
Three: Some of the love for Trump in the polls right now is due to his willingness, as Rush Limbaugh says, to go right at Obama by bringing up subjects that his fans in big media has declared to be off the table. Okay, but that’s partly a function of the fact that the base is unenthused thus far about its choices for 2012, especially with tea-party rock stars like Palin, Pence, and Rubio sitting things out. If, say, Palin jumped in and started to “go right at Obama” on, say, spending, it’s easy to imagine the conservative reception for Trump’s Birther broadsides turning from amusement and applause for his fearlessness to annoyance and even anger that he’s sucking media oxygen away from more substantive lines of attack and making it easier for the media to “kookify” the GOP. No one has a problem with it now because no one’s in the race yet, just Pawlenty and Cain and a bunch of heavy hitters weighing their options. But once the race is on and we get deeper into policy (speaking of which, did Trump really tell Joe Scarborough that we should seize Iraq’s oil fields?), who’s going to want to hear this?

Does anyone know if his mother is still alive? I read where she went to Washington State to go to college but what happened to her after that.
Nope. No divorce because SR. was already married to at least one other woman in Mombasa. Bigamy may be legal in Kenya but it ain’t legal here. Any “marriage” by Stanley Anne and Barack SR. would have been fraudulent from the git go. No marriage=no divorce
There are real investigators working this case now, not a bunch of sympathizing MSM hacks. Let's see how much of the BS that has been peddled by the MSM will stand up as these sleuths go to work. There is no where in the world they will not go to dig out the truth and that includes Kenya. I bet they have a blank check from Trump to get the job done. Now, that ought to make more than a few very, very nervous. I'll bet there is a canary or two out there who still remembers how to sing.

New U.S. Birth Certificate Requirement
Beginning April 1, 2011, the U.S. Department of State will require the full names of the applicants parent(s) to be listed on all certified birth certificates to be considered as primary evidence of U.S. citizenship for all passport applicants, regardless of age. Certified birth certificates missing this information will not be acceptable as evidence of citizenship. This will not affect applications already in-process that have been submitted or accepted before the effective date.
In addition to this requirement, certified copies of birth certificates must also include the following information to be considered acceptable primary evidence of U.S. citizenship:
Full name of the applicant
Date of birth
Place of birth
Raised, embossed, impressed or multicolored seal of issuing authority
The date the certificate was filed with the registrars office (must be within one year)
Can Obama obtain a passport now? Just asking.
“I think the main reason Trump is up in the polls is becasue he doesnt mind spitting in the oppositions face.”
Best reason I’ve heard so far.....HE’S GOT REAGAN BLOOD!
Do you mean Obama's mama? She died a while back but I don't recall the reason. Danae, can you help?
Trump isn’t backing up his statements with very good
The facts re; BC fraud, not natural born citizen:
How to reach Trump:
They were never married, had a one night stand, she got knocked up, didn't have an abortion, moved to Canada to have the baby and visited her high school friend a few weeks after she had the baby. She DID NOT travel fully pregnant. She traveled as soon as she missed her first period after it was discovered she was pregnant and they shipped her to a Woman's home.
AND his name is BARRY. Barry was the 61st out of 1000 most popular boy names in 1962.
His legal name is STILL Barry.
Sorry but you're wrong.
Google it, the document is on line.
Not disputing anything you posted accept for the marriage part.
Why are there court records of their divorce?
WHY he is doing it isn't as imporant as that he is doing it.
Ever heard of FRAUD? Ever heard of attempting to manufacturer documents during a Presidential election... paging Dan Rather ???
Connect the dots people, they were never married. It was 1962 and she got knocked up her freshman 1st semester and shipped off to Canada.
It wasn’t love at first sight, it was sex and she got pregnant. She barely knew the guy.
Wonder how come CNN didn’t just take President Bush’s word on his military record as much as do Obama’s word for being American born. President Bush had to release hundreds of military records and dental records to prove he was in the military. However, we have not seen a BC, a school record, college transcript, etc on Obama. Real investigative stuff by Malveaux.
Where is the link for the loser who gets rolled by The Donald on CNN? No link was provided?
Here is a intriguing account of astrology chart for Ann Dunham :
the narrator is an East Indian woman “Bobbie”
Please watch whole thing before commenting. Very detailed and plausible. Astrology is not official science but it can hit pretty close if practiced by trained reader.
I find it very interesting.
she died from cancer... quite a while ago.
First, cut the snark, second the documments online of the divorce are stamped and signed by the court.
Ah, thank you!
