What Is Donald Trump, Newborn Birther, Trying To Hide From Us?

3/29 UPDATE: Possible proof of Trump U.S. birth uncovered

What is Donald Trump hiding?

The multimillionaire developer has, overnight, become a leading voice of the “birther” movement, members of which doubt that President Barack Obama was born in the United States (and, thus, is unable to produce an authentic U.S. birth certificate).

“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.”

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 largesse from the Trump family. In fact, the Queens institution includes the Trump Pavilion, a nursing and rehabilitation facility that was named for Mary Trump.

[If The Donald wants to hunt in his sock drawer for the official birth certificate, he should look for a document that includes an official Department of Health stamp and resembles city forms like ones used decades ago, like this or this.]

Donald Trump - huckster and crook for many years - bought up companies, then instead of paying the bills for these companies, which he COULD have done, let them go into bankruptcy - and then used the bankruptcy courts to make the debts go away. If he is 100 percent American, heaven help us all.
You mean like the people who took advantage of the CRA and bought houses they could not afford and then just walked away? Or maybe the people that forced banks to give such loan, like ACORN who would sit in the bank lobbies, protest and attempt to block mergers and such if those banks didn't lend to the people who couldn't afford the mortgage? Or maybe the people, such as Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, who told Bush administration officials, who wanted stricter regulations on Fannie and Freddie, that not only were Fannie and Freddie, just fine, no problems and financially secure and in fact the Bush administration officials are racists to even suggest there were problems? Like those guys?
Should have said "...he should look for a document that includes an official Department of Health stamp and resembles city forms like ones used decades ago, like this: http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html" Honestly, I didn't vote for the guy and I think he's completely out of his league as President, but with so many legitimate reasons to dislike him I am clueless as to why so many people insist on sticking to this one issue. You may not believe he was born in Hawaii, but where is the evidence he was born anywhere else? At this point, will anything outside of having Obama hand you his birth certificate in person for your own personal inspection going to convince you? Would that even? Don't be so entrenched in your own beliefs to blind yourself to reality.
The reason that Obama should show his Orignial birth cert. is that YOU MUST BE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN TO BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Otherwise we could have undocumented Mexicans, Russians, Iranians, etc, etc running for office. Now do you get it.??? He is the only President who was NEVER VETTED. ONE WONDERS WHY IS THAT?
Apparently you weren't smart enough to follow the link the first time it was posted, so here it is again: http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html. When you're done wiping the spittle off your keyboard you should remember to hit that caps lock key again so you stop looking like a child.
So factcheck.org somehow got a copy of the birth certificate but the governor of HI can't? Oh maybe thaaaaat's where it is.
I'm not sure what you bitches at TSG are going to whine about now. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/files/ht_trump_birth_certificate_jp_1103...
lol - Trump prooved his point, didn't he? lmao
Mr. Wee Wee sez "yOu gO girl" and STAND FIRM BEHIND Barack!
One thing's for sure, Obama is a #!%ing liar, plain and simple. As for the writer of this suck-ass, sucky-assed article, a few apt words from George Orwell: "The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink."
