I was originally going to ignore this story. I really don’t believe this blowhard has any desire to be President, but he does have a show on TV right now so I guess he’s following the Sarah Palin plan of constant self promotion. Although in Mrs. Palin’s case it isn’t turning out the way she planned.
So this serial filer for bankruptcy has been running around the country letting everyone know he’s ‘suddenly’ concerned that President Obama was not born in this country. Even more ludicrous this fraud claims Obama has never, ever provided the document for the public.
Well first Donald is telling a blatant lie. The President’s birth certificate has been available for the public since 2007 when he got into the race for the position. As you can see from Fact Check.org who actually saw, touched, felt and reviewed the Certificate the President provided.
“It’s inconceivable that, after four years of questioning, the president still hasn’t produced his birth certificate,” Trump told Newsmax. “I’m just asking President Obama to show the public his birth certificate. Why’s he making an issue out of this?” To prove how easy it was for a household employee to find his birth certificate, Trump, 64, crowed, “It took me one hour to get my birth certificate.”
Yet apparently whatever Donald was able to obtain isn’t an official birth certificate issued by the NY City Dept of Health. Instead he provided a certificate of birth from a hospital in NY.
As seen above, he provided the conservative web site with what he purports to be his birth certificate.
Except the document is not an official New York City birth certificate, but rather a document generated by Jamaica Hospital, where Trump’s mother Mary reportedly gave birth in June 1946. Official birth certificates are issued (and maintained) by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Office of Vital Records.
So, what is Trump trying to conceal?
On a possibly related note, Jamaica Hospital has been the recipient of significant financial largest from the Trump family. In fact, the Queens institution includes the Trump Pavilion, a nursing and rehabilitation facility that was named for Mary Trump.
So The Donald provided a conservative website this as his official certificate of birth. If Trump thinks this passes the smell test he’s been firing the wrong guy because he obviously isn’t wise enough to realize this is a certificate of birth. You know kind of like the same type of certificate you’d receive fro being in the Boy Scouts.
This should also be noted too while we’re at it:
“Trump’s mother, it should be noted, was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This fact pattern — along with the wave of new questions surrounding what he claims is a birth certificate — raises serious questions about his eligibility to serve as President of the United States.”
Nothing official here Donald. Try again.
