Well, Donald Trump got what he wanted.
Today the White House released President Obama’s original birth certificate. Trump claims he was able to force President Obama into doing this – and he’s proud of it. But who comes out on top here? Did the President finally put Trump in check for all his outrageous claims? Or does this give Trump more power?
I think Trump’s arrogance and ego are out of control. Everyone always complains about spin from politicians. But Trump has become the “spin master” and should be held accountable. What do you think? Post below.
And you won’t want to miss my interview with Larry King about the headline-making mogul. Larry has interviewed Trump a bunch of times. Does Larry think Trump has a chance of winning? That is, of course, if he runs for President.

Donald Trump is a racist. Period. He wouldn't be asking this of a "white" president. Same goes for his "doubts" about Obama's ability to attend college or University. If George Bush can actually graduate from Yale given what a potato head he is, are we really seriously worried that Obama didn't "deserve" to go to University? Maybe he should ask either of his foreign born wives how they feel about his latest conspiracy theory? Or here's an idea Mr. Trump. Why don't you provide proof, preferably in a long form certificate, that any of that whipped souffle on your head is real human hair or in the right place? What secrets are YOU hiding Mr Trump under that hair nightmare?
FACT: WORLD WAR III HAS BEGUN....NOT WITH BOMBS OR GUNS BUT WITH WORDS....
I SIT BACK AN WATCH AMERICA DESTROY ITSELF.....MILLIONS OF BLACK AND MILLIONS
WHITES WHO WILL NEVER EVER TRUST OR LOVE EACH OTHER....LISTEN TO THE WORDS
AND YOU WILL KNOW WHAT SIDE A PERSON IS ON....WILL THERE BE A WINNER
"NO" – WHO CAN WE BLAME – EACH AMERICAN THAT SPEAKS AGAINST HIS BROTHER
OR SISTER. AS I WATCH CHINA AND OTHER COUNTRY BECOME NUMBER I .
"THE HATER HAVE OUT NUMBERED THE LOVERS"
GOD'S SPIRTS DWELLS UNDER PEACEFULNESS- SO LOVER OF PEACE BE STRONG
AS LONG AS WE REMAIN PEACEFUL GOD WILL BE WITH US....LET THE HATER HAVE
THEIR WAR. AND WHEN IT ALL FALLS DOWN, JUST HAVING THE SATISFACTION OF
OF KNOWING OUR HANDS ARE CLEAN FROM THE BLOOD OF AMERICA.
Did'nt Trump say his hired hands discovered that the cerificate had gone missing (Andersen Cooper) and the very nexted day the PRESIDENT release it so that we can go on to other thing more important.
Now when I see this self promoter in an interview I have to turn the channel he does'nt answer any question just flaps his lips. He has proven himself a liar.
I really hope Donald Trump gets the Republican nomination. Best thing that would ever happen to the Democratic Party. It is kinda scary that we elected a mentally challenged person for two terms though, Trump may still have a chance.
'scuse my friend mushmouth. It's a real shame dey couldn't fix his lips. of course evrybody in our neighborhood understand him jes fine! SURE CONFUSES WH!tey, though!
hey-b man-b! you-b better-b stop-b dissin-b my-b president-b! Trump-b just-b a big-b mouth-b with-b no-b sense-b!
If Trumps get in as President he will likely finish off the country. Here is a guy who has perfected leveaging money, borrowing more than he can pay back, working only with other people's money, leave others holding the bag when things don't work out – no value added, no products or services of consequence – just $ to his accounts and a big mouth. And that technique will help America? Not to mention the effect of his belligerence and arrogance on the international scene.
1st the whites came, stealing our land and bringing disease. Then they brought the black man here to pick his cotton. You are now fighting with each other over what is ours. Just leave! Go back where you came from!
Fact: Obama is biracial. Fact: Blacks are far more prejudiced and hateful than whites. Fact: Racism will continue as long as you blame wh!tey for all your problems instead of doing something about it!
@Anna, comment #39: you are just as guilty of the prejudice and hate you accuse the TEA Party of; in addition, my dear, you are a stone-cold, b@llbreaking B!TCH!
ubama is a moron. Trump is playing with stupid libs and lm laughing my butt off.
liberals are liars and ubama is a moron. Trump is playing with libs and lm laughing my butt off.
It gonna be a smellabration ! DOODOOOO for all !
If you idjits would spend more time worrying about bowel movements than skin color everyone would be better off. Everyones diarreah is kind of brownish looking. It isnt blue or purple. We are all the same. WE ALL MAKE SMELLY DOODOOO !
One can't help to wonder what's worse – a democrat running for president that some think he's not US born or a republican running for president that is Colon Panama born. John McCain (born in Panama) knows the rule/law about being born in the US – he knew he didn't qualify to run for president but ran regardless. Typical republican!!
FAITH: WE HAVE A VERY EDUCATED BLACK MAN IN OFFICE.
BAM! SO SOMETHING HAS TO BE WRONG WITH HIM – BAM!
WHAT I AM GOING TO SAY WILL HURT, BUT I MUST TELL
THE TRUTH....THE MAJORITY OF WHITES CAN'T DEAL WITH
THE FACT THIS BLACK MAN IS IN CONTROL.....TOP POSITION...
LET JUST CALL IT WHAT IT IS OK....
THERE ARE MILLIONS OF WHITE WHO WILL ALWAYS HATE BLACK PEOPLE.
AND THERE ARE MILLIONS OF BLACKS WHO WILL ALWAYS HATE WHITE PEOPLE.
THIS HATE IS WHAT HAS DESTROYED AMERICA....SOME SAY WE COME TOGETHER
IN TIMES OF HARDSHIP...BUT WE CAN'T LOVE IN TIMES OF PEACE....BAM!
EVERYTIME ONE PERSON OPENS HIS MOUTH AGAINST HIS BROTHER OF
COLOR HE BREAKS A PIECE OF AMERICA.....BAM!
WE ARE IN WORLD WAR 111 NOT WITH BOMBS BUT WITH WORDS OF HATE
YEAH ! THAT IS WHY WE SHOULD NEVER VOTE REPUBLICAN ! THEY ARE THE DUMB @SSES THAT GAVE JIGGABOOOS EVERYTHING ! THEY ARE ALL N!GGER LOVERS !
The first Republican pres was Abe Lincoln. He freed the slaves... "what have the republicans done for us?" you really are an uneducated dumba$$.
Trump may be an idiot but the real disgrace is the way our media has allowed this blowhard to take over the airwaves and make his personal cases a matter of great public debate. This country is quickly becoming a pathetic joke in the world stage and show the rest of the world that this once great country is now run by the media outlets, pushing their agenda under the guise of fair snd accurate reporting. Is this issue really newsworthy ? C'mon now....
donald trump is nothing more then the male version of Sarah Palin...All he is doing is proving himself an idiot. He should have stayed quiet...at least then he could have pretended a tad bit of self respect and intelligence.
Obama...seriously people. It is going to take at decades to pull ourselves out of the ditch that complacency and ignorance have put us into. Congress stopped doing its job years and years ago because they are too concerned with maintaining a status quo that no longer exists. Obama is fighting for all of us...he can't focus on black people only, but he can focus on all of us as a people and try to get our country back. I say...he's doing okay at it...I'd give him a solid B which is leap years over any president we have had since WWII. Give the man a break. Do you think a republican would have forced BP to fork over millions in payment for what they did to our Gulf? Do you think a republican would have passed healthcare, any form of healthcare? What have republicans done for us lately? What have republicans done for us ever? Not to say that democrats are much better, they are working on themselves and at least seem to have some idea of where they are trying to go while the republicans are busy chasing their tails and ignoring the changes bought about by technology, the free market, and the emerging third world countries that aren't so third world anymore. The rest of the world went and grew up...its time for us to stop trying to save them and save ourselves.
You forgot one thing...Trump told Anderson Cooper the day before that his "investigators" went to Hawaii and found Pres. Obama's birth certificate MISSING!! Day later Obama presents it and proves that TRUMP IS A LIAR. I've been following Trump for more than 20 years. He is a known RACIST to inside circles. Read the book "TRUMPED" by former Trump executive John R. O'Donnell. He writes in the book how Trump forced him to fire a black accountant of his just because he was BLACK! He's very well known to be a racist who is insecure and has low self-esteem, thus his need to always promote himself through hyperbole.
Now that this situation is done, let's see if the trump has an inkling about leading this country. His campaign's going to be one big joke.
Mr. Trump I am really disappointed in you. This just prove that you are not an intelligent man. You think you can manipulate people with your wealth. You and your money burn in hell. You are just the devil in disguise. Mr. Obama have better things to think about. He doesn't have time to waste his energy on a crap like you. You ever look at yourself? Stupid print all over you with your stupid face
I like maccaronni ! mmmmmmmmm. . . . .
I knew it ! I knew that Donald Trump was from Hawaii ! This proves it !
And I do not believe he is of my background. His parents and grandparents did not face and overcome discrimination. HIs grandparents were not slaves. He does not knopw what it feels like to face descrimination. He is the child of a white hippy woman and a native african. He was raised by eliteist whites. He is no more African American than that fool Trump.
As an African American woman and a democrat I am very dissapointed in this president. Where are the reparations promised to my grandparents ? Where is the help my community so desperately needs ? We supported him in the election. Now is the time for him to support us.
TSK you racist simpleton. Why dont you go back to school and g et a real education. I bet you drive a pickup and like in a trailer. How many racist tottos do you have? Go back to Germany you hate filled thug. Ermant.
TSK I can hear that whiteness in your typing. Your racist hate filled rant is unacceptable in todays world. Kloset Kllaaksmen like yourself make me sick.
Yeahhh, now we have FULL proof that Obama is NOT a natural born citizen!
Now, get out of our White House!
I totally agree with Mr. Trump on this!! Obama needed to show this A LONG TIME AGO!! And- we'll see what the experts say. Alot of people STILL have doubts!
As James Carville said the other night on CNN, the birther movement is nothing more than a poll of the nation that allows us to get all the stupid people to step forward.
Mr. Know Better: You're right on target! Also, he can't stand the fact that a Black man is telling him what to do!"
Now we have Obama's birth cleared up, let's get the litter certificate of the dead animal that is posing as a comb over on Trumps head.
Trump got trumped! That big mouth, tea party racist, with the big blow dryed comb over is full of it! Obama is simply trying to clean up the mess that the Republicans have gotten us into. I will be voting for Obama and not that bloated old fart!
Have you looked at the class of Tea Party members? They are undereducated, lower class, trailer trash, Nascar, Budweiser-loving, anything that isn't white hating, losers. Really, they are people who are afraid and fearful of anything that isn't white and doesn't spend Sunday afternoons making left turns for three hours.
I don't dispute his birth. I consider his lack of real world experience, his association with radicals, his long membership in a racist church, and ignorance of economics what we really need to worry about.
If the Tea Party members – Taxed Enough Already – actually believed in what they say they stand for, they would be rioting in front of the IRS, and they would change their tax deductions. The Tea Party is simply a thinly veiled cover for bigotry and racism. Obama has been a great President, especially considering the pile of crap Bush left for him to dig us out of. Trump and the Birthers and the Tea Party members will believe what they want, in spite of the truth.
White Peoples be evil ! The root of all wrongnes.
spread hapiness and love. spread kindness not sadness. you trolls and mean people need to et a life.
That TSK and Logic person are just Republican right wing rasiist. They are haters that need to quit dissing our guy. If they were so smart they would have jobs and be at work and not posting here.
NO WAY ! He is HAWIIAN ! Donald Trump is Hawiian and this proves it ! He eats roasted pork and pineapples and goes to the beach ! Dang Hawiians. I wish I was one ! : )
First of all I think Donald Trump provides comic relief but is basically an idiot. Second, I agree with James. I am way more concerned with Obamas involvement in a racist church (which is a fact). I get so tired of people calling anyone who criticizes a black person a racist.
so what if the minister/pastor was a racist – that doesnt make Obama one.
I think all religion is a crock and you probably believe in the fantasy yourself – but its not a good reason to be "cautious" of our President who is a good man.
He's as white as he is black, lets get that straight. But more importantly, what about the politicians who associate themselves with Franklin Grahm and other Evangelical wackos?
Takes time to get the right paper & ink, time to age it with a little sunlight, etc. to fool the right people. that's why it took this long.
Hold on...Trump has "people" finding unbelievable things over in Hawaii...I can't wait to see what he has uncovered (in light of Obamas reveal). Perhaps his people have found big waves and Pineapples!!! Regardless, he is an average IQ guy whose aggressive nature has served him well in business. That said, several of his businesses have not fared very well, and Merv Griffin out-dealed him years ago....although Trump "spins" it differently. I am a registered Republican....and I am certain the best thing for Obama would be to have Trump on the GOP ticket. His gaff's on the Chinese Tarriff and Roe v. Wade exposes his lack of understanding on critical issues...he would be exposed as a non-intellect and bully in a run for president
true Republicans...now is your chance to come out against the Tea Party- Birther- Koran burning haters. Your true, conservative, Teddy Roosevelt, Ike, Jeffersonian ways are welcome. When solid conservative ideas and traditional liberal positions can be shared, we will get back to having the country we once had. But it is up to you to silence these nut jobs if you have any hope of maintaining a respectable party.
Trump has been trumped, and is about to get dumped.
Online more people than ever before are decrying Trump and the TP's and Birthers, this has shown how ridiculous they are. True Republicans must be shaking their heads in absolute disbelief that their party has been reduced to a side show – No, worse than that a freak show.
S t f u already! there is a black man in office! get over it already! he is doing a decent job. if u peeps think you can do a better job why dont you be president and see if you can straighten out the mess that bush put us in and i am white. stop the hating people
I agree. Some white people just cannot get over the fact that a black man is ruling the country and possibly the most powerful being in the world. I think it is a shame that we overlook all his good attributes and try to beat him down at every corner. He has all the pedigree that would make a white man more than legitimate in the eyes of other white men – Harvard undergrad, Harvard Law. I mean he has it, yet people continually call into question his legitimacy. To me that is nothing but blatant racism – no matter how you slice it.
If Trump is a serious candidate for President, please Canada let me in. It's bad enough we elected one self-promoting, narcissitic fantasist as President, do we have sit through a race with two of them blathering on and on? Save us from the people who would save us from ourselves.
PLUS HE MIGHT BE A MEXIKIN ! THEM MEXIKINS is always up to somethin !
He spent most of his youth his formative years in Indonesia. His belief system developed during his time there. They have fundamentally different values and beliefs from those raised in the US. He was raised by those with an African Muslim ideology. Plus all his years as a member of a racist church. These are all reasons we should be cautious of him.
Lol – you're an idiot! The tea party birthers are racist. No other president in the history of the US has ever had to produce a birth certificate – why? Because they are all Alpha White Males. Tell me that does not stink of racism. Something is rotten in the State of Denmark and it's not President Obama!
I formed my world views when I was a child also. Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny were cool, but that Ronald Regan was naughty.......... And how, within two sentences as you stated, is a person influenced by Muslim ideology but be a member of a racist Christian church?
Right On Nette ! James apparently doesnt like anyone "different"...
I guess if you consider his formative years from age 6 through 10 he did live in Indonesia with his Mother and Step Father. The first three years (Grades 1 – 3) he went to a catholic school that was right around the corner from his house. His final year in Indonesia his parents moved so he went to a local public school for grade 4. Then he moved back to Hawaii to go to a prep school from Grades 5 through high school graduation. I guess those Catholics really indoctrinated him into their Muslim ways. James your naivety really comes out when you claim he was raised with an “African Muslim ideology”. Not sure why you think this. Yes his natural father was African and born a Muslim. But his father went to grade and high school in a school run by the Anglican Church of Kenya. On top of that his father left before he was one and he only saw his father one time when he was 11 when his father came to visit for a month in Hawaii. Now his step father was Indonesian which if you check your map is in Asia. He was only around his step father until he was 10. His mom and grand parents were white and ancestry from England, Ireland, and Germany. Where was he raised in “African Muslim ideology”?
Hey I think Obama is a naïve academic with no real world experience. I still don’t understand why people voted for him except that he is a great speaker. If the Republicans want to beat him, they have to stop the nonsense, focus on his inexperience and the decisions he has made that backfired. While doing that present a plan that will work to fix our deficit and get us out of these silly wars in places we really do not care about.
I'm not sure that James can claim he has been raised with a "Muslim ideology" and then criticize the President for being part of a "rascist" Christian church. If you want to hate him because he has a different background than most politicians, or because he's black, or because he's smart then own your bigotry and say so. Stop pretending that this is about a conspiracy.
I must say that I am amused by the President's smackdown of this blowhard, purely for spectator purposes.
Trump still in disbelief that a Black Man is president Come to reality and see your racism
I stopped watching The Apprentice when the ugly blowhard came out with his support of Birthers – what a freak !
me, too. Trump is an interesting guy, but he has become kind of evil with his beyond-the-lunatic-fringe rants. Now would be a good time for all of us to stand together, and not be divisive.
thank goodness this issue is put to rest. Good for Trump to force Obama to show it. If his grandmother didn't make comments about being born in Kenya, who would have cared? Now, we can get back to important issues that need to be dealt with.
No, this will not put anything to rest. tea party birthers want to cling to anything to deny the president's legitimacy. They listen to lying liers propaganda (ie fox) who reenforce and perpetuate these falsehoods praying on their lack of desire to seek truth or understanding. They alienate the views of those that oppose and strengthen narrow emotially viseral fear-based reactions from them. Sheep need leaders. Only sometimes the sheep blindly follow spewers away from honesty and truth toward hateful lies, in the form of conspiracy views and other myths that make them feel justified in their ignoranct (and probaibly racist) views.
YA...and too bad Obama isnt qualifed to deal with anything in any kind of logical manner. There will be no second term for ObaMANURE.
ya the important issues.
What are they again?
the nfl lockout??
his picks for the NCAA basketball tourney???
I like how people would believe an old women in Kenya but not the state of Hawaii.
Obama is a lier ! And a faik !
And bio7 is spelling-challenged.
I had some faik once, it was pretty tasty, though a little sour.
LL. Why dont you go stick with your bowel movement jokes? Gosh you need to get a life.
IT WAS NOT A BIRTH CERTIFICATE ! It was a certificate of live birth. There is a big difference. Are all of yoy people at CNN retardz ?
Does that certificate of live birth not verify he was born in Hawaii?
Donald Trump is into a head trip beyond belief! Please let him float away in his own little personal world on cloud 9 and never come back! All he is after is publicity and it would be a real class act for CNN to stop covering this arrogant idiot!
A certificate of live birth is a birth certificate. The issue was the short form which is filled out on request from information on the long form vs. a copy of the actual long form which is filled out at the time of birth. Hawaii does not normally give out the long form except a copy to the parents after the birth. To get a copy required Obama's lawyers to ask for a waiver for the state to provide a copy of the long form. CNN has a copy of the waiver request which was dated 4/16.
People let this go as he was born in the US. Just check the facts of his parents and what they were doing at the time and you would know this already. Take this energy and focus on Obama being an academic and having no real world experience.
You will not get him out of office if you focus on silly stuff. Focus on his issues like his not understand how the economy works which is why he claimed unemployment would not go over 8% with the stimulus package and it went double digits. It was so easy to see the stimulus was nothing more than a spending bill and would not create long term jobs. Just like Obama doing nothing about oil prices because that helps him with green jobs. Although I agree we need to shift as much as we can green it will not create new jobs but just replace existing jobs.
The only way to get enough jobs being created is to get our businesses hiring here in the US. That requires demand for their products and services and also requires they do it with employees based in the US. We need an overhaul of many areas of our codes to make this all work. We have built a lethargic, complicated, and unitizing business structure in the US which is driving companies to do business off shore and not create jobs here.
We have the highest percent of people living off government support in the history of the US while we are loosing jobs. Wake up people tell the government to cut out the spending and bring the jobs back. If you do not the politicians will keep telling what you want to here so they can get reelected but they will bankrupt the country in the process.
Savvy Politicians know to think 10 steps ahead of the game. Trump just showed the world he is a kindergartener in Politics.
. Obama radiates integrity. Trump radiates low self esteem.
In Hawaii it is a Certificate of Live Birth. This is the long edition.
Are you both stupid and ignorant or are you just kidding?
Actually, it WAS a birth certificate...he released it yesterday and it was posted on every news site and broadcasted on every news channel worldwide!!! Don't know how anyone could have missed that unless you had your head up your A*# all day yesterday!!! But then again, moronic undercover racists, who can't get over the fact that a BLACK MAN is currently holding the most prestigious position in our Country, and is doing a great job cleaning up the mess of the ignorant twit that came before him, of course,you would blindly disregard all the facts and continue on with your idiotic childish winning that only re-emphasizes to the rest of the world how insecure you truly are with yourself! GET OVER IT!!! He is our president, WE voted him in!!! Now let him do his job so we can ALL benefit in the long run. You'll stand behind an imbecile like Bush but when we get a man that has more honor than anyone we've ever seen, you throw a tantrum!!! Well CHILD...Just go to your room and don't come out till 2016!!!!
Trump, you are a truly disgusting new yorker!
