Watch: Donald Trump Says He Has Investigators in Hawaii Looking Into Obama's Birth Certificate


Donald Trump, who came in second place in a New Hampshire GOP presidential Public Policy Polling survey, continues his birther crusade on the Today in an interview with Meredith Vieira in which he says he's a teabagger, and has investigators in Hawaii looking into Obama's birth certificate.

"I have people that actually have been studying it and they cannot believe what they're finding."

  2. Donald Trump really needs to have some investigators in New York trying to figure out what can be done to fix HIS HAIR!!!

  4. There is no chance in hell this braggart will be our next president. No way.

  5. So basically, Trump has no substance to his presidential campaign. He's just trying to appeal to the angry teabaggers like Palin and Bachmann.

  6. He probably believes that he can BUY his way into the White House, just like he does everywhere else. He will step on anyone and everyone that gets in his way. I truly doubt he has anyone researching in Hawaii, but, if he does, and the results weren't to his benefit, he will quietly drop it. His belief is Plutocracy, not Democracy. He is for the rich and powerful, not the common man. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and knows no other life, especially that of the poor or middle class. His craziness fits right in with the teabaggers. He and Bachmann would make great running mates!!!

  7. "They cannot believe what they're finding."

    Let me guess, that it's genuine?

  8. Trump is a disgusting POS!

  9. I truly hate this guy. What I find interesting is that the candidates embraced by the teabaggers are the candidates who have zero in common with them. You know that, in his heart, Trump views the teabaggers as nothing but white trash - which they are, so I guess Donald and I agree on something.

  11. DT-we want to see your bankruptcy papers -for the 2 times you have declared.
    And while you are at it-be sure and show the fundies you are going to need to get you to the top of the elephant pile-your divorce decrees-they will need to make sure you aren't a polygamist.

  12. "...they cannot believe what they're finding."

    I'm sure they can't. I'm guessing they're finding NOTHING!

    3 bankruptcies. Trump's 3rd bankruptcy was in 2005


    Yeah, LOL the surprise they are experiencing is in the reality of it

    Trump is currently polling at #2 spot amongst the repub party that has been hijaked by the mad hatter's tea party. OY

  14. What the hell is he talking about? Why are these looney toon Teabaggers and birthers allowed to continue with this nonsense?

    What could Trump's so-called (if true) PIs uncover that the CIA, FBI and Secret Service haven't?

    Do you really think they don't vet presidential candidates for authenticity and/or eligibility? C'mon...

  15. Murphy'sLaw.

    Never argue with a fool, people might not know the difference.

  16. He truly is looking more and more pathetic and desperate every day.
    Well at least we can say Trump brings in the LMAOFs comic relief.

  17. For someone who built his empire on real estate in New YOrk, there has to be something dubious and illegal in his background that can be exploited, as well. Let's send an investigator after his saggy ass. This is not a "pure as the driven snow" kind of guy....more like a "purile as yellow snow" kind of guy.

  18. Why does the media continue to allow Trump to spew out this nonsense? Why do they take his crap seriously? He is a narcissistic loudmouth and an idiot not worth any airtime. Shame on these "news" organizations who are falling all over themselves to get him on their programs and calling it an "exclusive". He'll talk to a crack in the sidewalk if it gets him publicity.

  19. I think the length of his tie is compensating not only for the usual, but his hair as well.

  20. This is the problem with "single-issue" folks. Once the whole birther movement passes (which I'm convinced it will, because it really is so trivial, not to mention unfounded), what does Trump have to stand on? Bankruptcies and divorce with no real political experience.

    I actually do hope that he spends his $600M or whatever godawful amount he bragged about the other day. And I hope it works as well for him as it did for Meg Whitman.

  21. rather than talk substance he would rather dig
    for garbage to inflame the situation. trump creates smoke to cover his own short falls 3 marriages and as many bankruptcies. these are great qualities for a president. he needs to use this to keep people from looking at him to closely and appeal to the teabaggers of the repuk party.

    Posted by: walter | Apr 7, 2011 12:48:05 PM

  22. Hmmmm... Trump claims to be a "tea-bagger"... will someone PLEASE tell him what that means :-) oh, and do it on national TV so we can see his response...

    Posted by: Daya | Apr 7, 2011 1:05:40 PM

  23. NBC and Trump will do anything to improve his ratings. Simply put, The Apprentice STILL sucks!

    Posted by: ThomD | Apr 7, 2011 1:36:10 PM

  24. Wanna bet he doesn't actually have anyone looking into it and he's just doing this for publicity? I would.

    Posted by: ravewulf | Apr 7, 2011 2:22:33 PM

  25. "White trash" is a term that should be reserved for self-serving a**holes like Donald Trump. And why the f**k should the media be giving him a platform for his crap?
