Trump Offers Website Bogus Birth Certificate to Prove Point About How Easy it is to Produce


Donald Trump, who appears to be attempting a run for President on the Birther platform, offered his birth certificate to right-wing website Newsmax in order to prove a point about how easy it is to produce one.

Except, it isn't one, the Smoking Gun notes:

“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.

What's Donald Trump trying to hide?

  1. The Jamaica Hospital is in Queens,NY !!!
    Anybody who wants to live in the White House cannot hide information requested by the people. We are best served by new servants to the WH and Capitol Hill. They need to be working intensely on creating jobs for the 15 mil unemployed and 9 million part time employed AND reducing our debt. Instead, our Chief Public servant flies xcountry at our expense to fill his pockets for 11/2012 and mcCain is in Libya at our expense?!! Might they have even considered paying for it themselves or by their rich friends? As long as we don't remind them they work for us, we'll see more arrogance, smooth rhetoric and silver tongue. It is time for someone else who has done real work, hired and fired people, who will speak 'straighttalk, and who has not been bought and paid for by lobbyists, unions, etc. Payback at our expense is quicksand.
