Has the president EVER elaborated on this statement he made back in 2011?

"We very early on did an investigation into Barack Obama's birth certificate," Bill O'Reilly said, noting that his team had turned up two Obama birth announcements in local Hawaiian newspapers, " (So) I just dismissed it but you made a big deal out of it."

Trump said of the birth announcements: "I grew up with Wall Street geniuses. What they do in terms of fraud, and how they change documents and I'll tell you something, if you notice, those dates were three days later. And here's what I ask people who puts announcements? [Here's] two poor people, a man and a woman with no money, they have a baby. There's announcements in the newspaper? ... Nelson Rockefeller doesn't put announcements in. I've never seen one."

So who are these "Wall Street geniuses" AKA criminals who committed a litany of crimes? Do they have access to the White House? Do they have access to classified information, government policy making, or government funds? Are they working in government agencies now? Is there a chance these frauds are in the cabinet right now?

If only there was some political body that could subpoena people and access things. If only there was some legislative actor that could use some sort of check and/or balance to get to the bottom of this...

Oh well.

1. Everyone who has a baby, you freak.

2. I remember when the local newspaper would print more details.

Births included the baby's weight. They would also print a list of adults who entered and released from the hospital! This kind of stuff was considered news, not a an invasion of privacy.

It's a good thing that changed.

3. This is how he talks, he projects falsehoods on other people

Without ever actually accusing Obama of faking his birth certificate, Chump was trying to plant the idea that it could be done. We've heard him use this same technique many times, and it's always to project a false narrative on someone else. Then when it comes back to bite him, he can say, "Well I never said that, I never accused him."

Chump is just a weasel of the worst kind.

By the way when births are recorded in the hometown newspaper, it's never on the same day the baby was born. The fact that it was published 3 days later makes it look all the more authentic.

4. The problem is that everything he has ever said ever is a lie

 

And everybody basically knows it and accepts it. Except the rubes, I guess.

He always knows "the best people," "the smartest people, "the toughest people," the whatever people. It's all bullshit and it has been since the early 80s.

Trying to hold him to any of these statements is like trying to grab the wind.
