President Obama, in far beyond what he is legally required to do, released his long-form birth certifiate from the state of Hawaii. He had already released the short-form certificate, the one that Hawaii gives to those born there, and which was already good enough to get issued a U.S. passport.
Who takes credit, well Donald Trump. See, Trump wants attention, and he says he is going to run for the presidency, and to do so he is trying to attract birther support. Well, Trump had stated before Obama released the long form in an interview with Meredith Vieira.
" …You are not allowed to be a President if you are not born in this country. He may not have been born in this country, and I tell you what: three weeks ago I thought he was born in this country — right now I have some real doubts. I have people that actually have been studying it, and they cannot believe what they’re finding."
"You have people now, down there, searching, I mean in Hawaii?"
"Absolutely. Absolutely, and they cannot believe what they’re finding."
When George Stephanopoulos asked him about these supposed investigators, after Obama's release of the original birth certificate, The Donald responded, "That’s none of your business right now.”
What?! The Donald runs for the presidency by saying he has investigators who "cannot believe what they are finding', and now that isn't a concern? Who are these incompetent investigators on Trump's payroll? Because he sure needs to say you're fired to them, if anyone. Look at the ego on a man who gets angry that anyone dare question or point out that either he has incompetents/liars on his payroll or that he was lying himsef. Actually, it is pretty clear that Trump lied about this.
Or, maybe he was just believing the blather of one of those birthers writing books attacking Obama as a non-citizen, the Jerome Corsis and Joseph Farahs of the birther movement The Donald is actually taking credit for his absurd crusade to get Obama to release a certificate that wasn't necessary to prove he was a citizen, because Obama already released the short form version that the state of Hawaii releases to everyone. We don't need an energy solution in America, we need just to power our electronics and lights from the hot air that is Donald Trump.
