Watch: Donald Trump Explains Why He's a Birther in Feverish Rant on 'Fox and Friends'


You can hear the spittle flying from Trump's mouth in his latest birther rant from this morning's FOX & Friends in which he calls for an investigation of Hawaii's governor over Obama's birth certificate.

Asks Steve Doocy: "What about the mainstream media accounts of this dust-up over the past week where they're trying to paint you as the mayor of crazytown for bringing this up?"


Think Progress notes

The myth that President Obama was born anywhere else than where he says he was has been roundly and repeatedly debunked, so one must ignore entire swathes of reality to continue to believe it. For example, Trump wants Obama to present a Certificate of Live Birth, but here it iswidely available on the internet, as it has been for nearly three years.

  1. This man is a demagogue. On one program, he states that no one remembers Obama in his early years and gives that as reason to be suspect of his birthplace. In this rant, he disputes that the governor of Hawaii remembers Obama being born. So on the one hand he wants people to remember, on the other they're lying if they do remember him.

    This load of crap is designed to put him in the news. If it doesn't get him elected to the office of President, it feeds his oversized ego and gets him the publicity he so desperately craves.

    Freakin' Jackass.

  2. Donald Trump is simply looking for attention. It is what he ALWAYS does.

    He will never run for President. He would have to make public his tax returns, which he would never do because then everyone would know is only worth $300 million--and NOT NOT NOT a billionaire.

  4. Trump/Bachman 2012. They should start a third party - if they could count that high.

  5. Mr. Combover needs something to keep him in the public eye. His show is steadily declining in the ratings, yet he got another season. It wouldn't surprise me if the moron pays the network to keep him on. Donald is a businessman, period, he has no clue of what social values are until they represent dollars in his head. Donald is strictly one-note, and it's flat.

  6. Can we stop paying attention to every stupid thing FOX News does? We're all wasting our time on nonsense.

  7. The law prohibits any one other than the person named on the birth certificate to have access to that birth certificate. That is why the Governor himself could not release it. I went through the same thing with the State of Tennessee to get my birth certificate. I wanted a cousin living there to pick it up for me and they would not permit it. All of this came about because of 9/11.

  9. trump has to see his name lights to keep going. he is a great candidate for president married 3 times filed for bankruptcy and is generally a real sleaze, which makes him very qualified to be the republican candidate. most of the front running repuks have almost the same qualities. bachmann palin newt donald romney and the huckster all have the same thing in common money grubbing no personal values but them for everyone else hypocrits. they all preach family values but are all lacking of the same.

  14. Trump is Trump. Everybody knows what he is.

    Question: Why doesn't the president give out his original, official birth certificate? I can get mine. What's the problem?
