Trump Releases Birth Certificate
Via Newsmax: Exclusive to Newsmax: Donald Trump’s Birth Certificate
The funny thing is, I am not so sure that the above actually qualifies as an official birth certificate, as it looks to me like more of a keepsake for the parents than it does a state-sanctioned document. I have to wonder if the above document (which does not, I would note, actually say the city and state of the The Donald’s birth) has any legal significance whatsoever. The real irony is that I can’t imagine he could get a passport with the above, but would need a COLB issued by the state of New York.
Indeed, I wonder how many people would think, upon looking at it, that The Donald was born in the country of Jamaica.
But, like I just said: Donald Trump, novelty act.
It’s a fake!
Prof. Taylor, a new birther.
Or is it re-birther?
Or revenge birther?
Or birther, birther, banana-fana, bo-birther, meat pies minertha, birther.
My problem is with anti-birthers…..
Where’s the long form!
You’re absolutely correct: it’s a useless document. When I had to get my driver’s license switched to the state of New York, I brought in my hospital birth certificate–exactly like the one Trump posted above. It was rejected out of hand. I had instead to order a COLB from my home state of Kentucky and present THAT to the DMV in order to confirm my birth. It looks exactly like the one Obama posted from Hawaii.
Hospital birth certificates aren’t official at all–they’re not considered worth anything by actual government officials.
Obviously, Donald Trump was not born in the United States of America. 😉
The maligned newspaper is often used as a recorder of public record.
Wonder how many Jamaica Hospitals there are in the world…
Christ, that looks like a postcard.
“birther, birther, banana-fana, bo-birther, meat pies minertha, birther.”
OMG, Trump is a Jamaican???
And the Republicans are allowing him to run for POTUS????
OK. How many birthers will start to question Trump’s birth place? None, I would guess. A few may agree this ‘birth certificate’ is little more than the type of nicey-nice knick-knack hospitals may give to new parents, along with adorable tiny caps knitted by nursing home residents and a sack full of coupons for baby formula. But that won’t lead them to question where Trump was born. Because, hey, Trump is white.
BTW, I especially like the gold sticker, which I suppose is supposed to look like an ‘official’ embossed seal. In my grade school, Sister Imelda used to give out similar stickers to the students with perfect attendance.
At least he has one and is willing to put it on display. Unlike Obama who either does not have one or is hiding something on the one that does exist. What does it say. Kenyan father? That would make him (Obama Jr.) a British citizen and uneligible to hold the office of President of the United States.
Ask and ye shall receive, MarkedMan.
Thanks for playing, stoner boy.
If you also notice, the certificate doesn’t specify who Trump’s mother is. What’s he trying to hide?
Yeah, when I was in grad school, our department secretary used to be an expert in making up these kind of documents for us when we went on expeditions in other countries. Its amazing how many doors they opened – although I must admit, I never tried running for President of any of those countries…
Hey, I’m just wondering… Why doesn’t Trump have a real birth certificate?
He don’t look Jamaican.
Stormy: Trump’s mom is Scottish.
Wiley knows as much about the laws of citizenship as a rock.
That’s just a keepsake certificate given to parents. I have one of those to. If you try to use it as proof of your identity though people will laugh at you.
One of the saddest things about the birthers is that they are so darn sure they know all the rules about birth certificates, citizenship and presidential qualifications, and they are so ardent about it. But they are often so laughably wrong. Number one on that has to be their undying belief that hospitals are responsible for birth certificates. In fact, I’ve seen a number of times from birthers that a BC isn’t valid unless it has footprints on it. In fact, as far as I know, there is no state that has such a requirement. Hospitals, on the other hand, used to (still do?) provide them as a way to protect themselves from panic stricken calls over whether the baby had been accidentally switched at birth. But, as evidenced by our in-house birthers, there is nothing you can do to convince them otherwise. They know what they know and everything else is just us losers not listening. They all see themselves as the guy running through the streets shouting “There are pods in our basements” and everyone ignoring them is either in on it or oblivious.
You can substitute “birthers” with “global warming deniers,” “islamaphobes,” “homophobes,” (the list goes on) and that paragraph still rings completely true. Its the modern Republican party in a nutshell.
This explains Trump’s anti-colonialism.
