Donald Trump has been making the media rounds asking questions about Barack Obama’s origins, questions predicated on false information and a general ignorance of what a birth certificate is. In attempt to press the contrast between himself and Barack Obama, Trump released not one, but three birth certificates in rapid succession. In a phone interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Network Trump reiterated his incredible claim: “I’m a really smart guy” and then proceeded to prove otherwise.
Trump plows new ground regarding the birth announcements from Hawaiian newspapers, not only falsely describing them as advertisements from the parents, but raising suspicions as why ANY parent would take out an ad in the newspaper announcing the birth of their child. Donald, Donald, Donald, all the kids in Honolulu were listed in the newspaper because the Department of Health sent the names to the Hawaii
News Service , and they in turn distributed it to the news papers in a column titled: ““. Trump says that he believes that Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie didn’t really know the Obama family and he also says that a “Certificate of Live Birth” “is nothing to do with a birth certificate.”
How does Trump know all this?
“I see what’s going on over the Internet.”
Did Greta Van Susteren challenge Trump on all the absurd claims he made? Apparently she knows very little on the subject, raising only the point that Obama must have had to present his birth certificate when he got his passport because she did.
