Trump Questions Obama Birth Certificate

4/27/2011 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump is already taking the credit for getting Barack Obama to go public with his birth certificate ... saying, "I'm very proud of myself" ... but adds, "We have to see if it's real."

Obama Birth Certificate

Moments ago, Trump said, "Today I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish."

Trump added, "I want to look at it, but I hope it's true, so that we can get on to much more important matters ... he should have done it a long time ago."

He continued, "I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue."

As for the actual document, Trump added, "We have to look at it, we have to see ... is it real? Is it proper? What's on it? But I hope it checks out beautifully."

Way to go Donald!!! We just want to know if he was born in the U.S. - it shouldn't be such a big deal if he was. I'm glad somebody's watching the house.

No address for the mother? She could not give her Kenya address.
She ran to the states to plop out baby Hussein because she knows all the advantages he would have as opposed to what Kenya could offer.
Then she took baby Hussein back to Kenya to raise him to be a good little Muslim boy.
What is a 17 year old getting pregnant to an old big black buck? Back in those days she would be considered a pig and no white man would want her. She liked that chocolate.

he wishes. anderson cooper took an investigative team to hawaii. trump SAID he did too, but as anderson went to hawaii with his team he thought he'd look for donalds, no team, no investigators. so anderson asked everyone he interviewed in regard to the authenticity of obamas birth certificate "did you show this to trumps investigators as well?" well kinda funny but trump has to actually show up first, like anderson did. thank you barack obama, we certainly don't need to waste anymore of andersons time.

this is racism pure and simple. Our country is taken over by idiots. I am not crazy about Obama but he is an American citizen. Why does every president not have to go through this?

All the ret*ards on this think they can spot a fake birth certificate is funny!

Oy.

This is stupid, at this point it would not serve to get Obama out of office (what, do we think this senate is going to remove him?) and he's going to be out by 2013 anyway.
It's sad, not a single right-winger in this country has any idea what it means to be conservative, and thankfully some of them don't claim to be. But a lot of them do, including this moron Trump and idiot Cantor.
Pick up a book and read about Patrick Henry, dolts. People on the left and right would embrace true conservatism if they did understand the concepts he laid out.
I'm starting to agree with PH's anti-federalist views, too. But like Henry noted, since the Constitution is here, might as well follow it as it was written. Obama apparently has complied with the Constitution, so can we move on?

Donald Trump is a douchebag with a bad comb over. Nobody takes you seriously in the political arena, especially the american voters, whether they be republican or democrat! You, Mr. Trump, are nothing but a school-yard BULLY!!! Examples in history; Rosie O'Donnel, Robert DeNiro, Jerry Seinfeld, and so many others. Why don't you just shut your flippin pie hole and stick to what you do best, which is building gaudy over the top buildings, f**king and marrying whores a quarter of your age, and paying off the people around you to be 'yes men'.
