The ironic thing about all of this is that Obama’s actual birth certificate isn’t even allowed for official use in Hawaii, but the Certificate of Live Birth, the document he has been using since the get go, is allowed.

The only reason Trump opens his mouth these days is to change shoes…

“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.

“I’d love for him to produce his birth certificate so that you can fight one-on-one,” Trump said in an interview set to air Monday. “If you look at what he’s doing to fuel prices, you can do a great fight one-on-one, you don’t need this issue.”


CNN has the truth:

Dr. Chiyome Fukino, a former director of the Hawaii Department of Health and a Republican, told CNN in her most extensive comments to date that she has “no doubt” Obama was born in the state.

Obama’s 2008 campaign produced a certification of live birth, a document legally accepted as confirmation of a birth and routinely used for official purposes. Fukino went one step further, taking advantage of a state law that allows certain public officials to examine a person’s actual birth certificate if there is a “direct and tangible interest.”

The president’s certificate, she said, is stored in a vault in the building that houses the Department of Health. Ironically, unlike the certificate of live birth, it is no longer accepted for official usage.

Obama’s certificate is “absolutely authentic,” she said. “He was absolutely born here in the state of Hawaii.”

Seriously Donald…if Michele Bachmann is off the birther issue by now…don’t you think you should be too?

  • Why should anyone believe Chiyome uncritically? Maybe she’s lying. Did she offer any proof?

  • Tully

    Nothing unconvinces conspiracy theorists. The nuttier the initial premise (and there’s not much nuttier than the idea that phony announcements were planted in newspapers in 1961 to facilitate some sort of Manchurian candidate in 2008) the less able they are to be unconvinced.

    If his original BC were released now, Birthers would immediately start tearing it to pieces as a forgery.

    And … see new post.

    Can’t stress strongly enough how right Tully is when he says that “Nothing unconvinces conspiracy theorists.” Psychologically, we’re talking about a pathological mindset . . . a sort of bunker mentality. For example, when doomsday cults don’t see the world end on the predicted day, the fervor of their members increases.

    Folks like this have placed their central hypothesis in a position of unassailable faith, which means that no fact can falsify it. Any “fact” which contradicts the faith must be wrong. Views not formed BY reason cannot be accessed or challenged BY reason.

  • There are no baby footprints on the long form!!!! How will we know for sure if we can’t compare the presiden’ts foot wrinkles with a baby foot print???? Oh, god help us!!!!!

  • gerryf

    That’s because Obama does not have feet–they are hooves as befits the spawn of the devil.

    And while he was technically “born” in Hawaii, he was born of a wolf and Satanists switched him with the real baby of Ann Dunhamand Barack Obama, Sr.

    True story….saw it on Victoria Jackson’s website….or maybe I heard it during a sprawling Michele Bachmann speech….or maybe it at a Tea Party rally….hmm, no, come to think of it Sarah Palin told me at a party hosted by Donald Trump….they heard it from Jonah Goldberg….who said it on both Glenn Beck’s radio program and Sean Hannity’s Fox television show.

  • This is what people doing, he says some stupid things and media buzz it and he has free advertisement.

  • Who cares?! Everyone knows that politicians will go after anything they find true or false in order to make the other guy look bad.

    This has been going on for centuries. None of us know what is really going on. Believe what you hear on the news, or don’t believe it.

    If you think about it, it is ridiculous to even discuss.

  • I can’t believe such a trivial issue as Obama’s birth certificate has been the central topic of the last few weeks and it has even taken priority over a number of much more important issues that the country faces in the area of economy or national security.
