If Donald Trump were an honorable person, he would apologize to President Obama. Trump should say he was wrong in assuming Obama was not born in the United States and, therefore, not eligible to be president.

Obama released his birth certificate during his presidential campaign in 2008. The state of Hawaii has issued copies many times and has once again issued the “certificate of live birth.”
Be an honorable man, Mr. Trump, and apologize.

  1. oh my, how un-informed people are. obama showed his LIVE BIRTH certificate, not birth certificate and there is a difference; anyone can have a live birth c. made, an actual birth c. shows birth weight, length, etc. wake up America, odama is a comunist, hate America and is a muslim to boot

  2. Being an ego maniac, don’t expect an apology from Trump any time soon. To maintain his mentally questionable following, it will be necessary for him to provide more of these sideshows.

    Stay tuned.

  3. odama is a comunist, hate America and is a muslim to boot

    Darlin……your post reveals you perfectly.

  4. Donald is a sideshow. Nothing to see there!

  5. Call Donald a side show, and he is, but what do you say about a “smart” man that let this go this long and then after a news conference in which he says how much of a distraction the birth certificate is goes golfing and visits with Opra. Perhaps the country would be better off if he went back to his office with his staff and actually wrote a bill to send to congress reducing the debit. What really work! Not for this talking head.

  6. Wendy, President Obama should have apoligized to the Nation for letting this controversy go on for over 2 1/2 years about his certificate of live birth or missing birth cetificate.

    Why did it take The Donald calling out Obama and challenging him to produce his actual birth certificate for him to finally produce it for all to see ?? Why ???

    Darlin
    Obama is really a space alien here to take over the world. Live birth certificate versus cirtificate of birth–what rubbish.

  8. Donald already has brougth up the next round = How did a “mediocre student” like Mr. Obama get into such elite prestigious schools as Columbia and Harvard Law, and why won’t the President release his school records.

    Of course, the loony tunes of the right forget that Bush 2 was a C- college student, and had ALL his records sealed.

    Dec – The President CANNOT introduce bills to Congress. Only members of Congress can do that, and all budget or spending bills have to originate in the House.

  9. ron – the thing you are missing is that when you, and other regressionists, carry on with this nonsense it HELPS Obama by making any of your legitimate concerns easy to dismiss.

    The smart politicians (Clinton and McCain) realized in 2008 that there is no there there and accepted the first release of proof as actual proof. The delusional ones continued with this nonsense – serving Obama’s interests – making clearly identifying themselves as completely delusional.

  10. Roncella says:

    beerBoy oh yes, McCain ran a very good campaign, he would not have carried many of the states he did without Palins help.

    Its kind of interesting how Obama ignored all the debate going on for over 2 1/2 years about his birth certificate or certificate of birth and all it took was The Donald to spot light it and make a loud issue of it and low and behold Obama finally releases it for all to see, Very Odd …..

  11. I bet it took 2 1/2 years to get the fake one made so that the wingnuts would buy into the scam. Oh Yeah, that will be the next claim.
    I wish someone would point out where it is written that an in person birth certificate is required and where in the past it has happened.
    The stink of racism is overwhelming in all this nonsense.

  12. This was settled over 2 years ago, for those that are not racist morons tuned to fox, that is.

  13. “Wendy, President Obama should have apoligized to the Nation for letting this controversy go on for over 2 1/2 years about his certificate of live birth or missing birth cetificate.”

    Why hasn’t Obama proven he isn’t a secret Muslim? Where is his proof that he’s not? Why hasn’t he produced his baptismal certificate? He’s let this drag on now for 2-1/2 years and should apologize for it.

    Roncella, you and your talking points are ridiculous, and hopeless.

  14. Fibonacci says:

    Roncella
    Why does Obama have to prove ANYTHING about his birth, his baptism, his college, etc. Is there some new requirement that has come inito play that was not there for the 40+ other presidents?

    Palin cost McCain votes,she did not help him at all. Onlh right wing extremists view her in a positive way.She cost theRepublicans the independent vote which neither party can lose and still win the presidency. Here’s hoping the Republicans nominate Palin or Trump so Obama is assured of victory in 2012.

    “Be an honorable man, Mr. Trump”

    To these two statements I say….

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  16. Until proven otherwise, Roncella is an illegal alien.

  17. Trump said he’d disclose his financial records when Obama produced a birth certificate.

    We’re waiting…….

  18. I’m waiting for Obama to prove he is actually Pres Obama. Come on, I’ve been waiting for 2 years (didn’t care about the first 6 months) for him to prove this.

    Obama, time to prove you are Obama.

  19. Darlin and those like him cause me to worry for our futrure,

  20. pazzo242 says:

    Why is it everyone forgets who was the first to bring this to the forefront? The Left in Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the Presidency. Do you guys think that the Republicans wouldn’t run with it for a while to mileage out of your own side bringing up the question? The Left would do no different if the tables were turned around.

    As for Trump, he’s just a circus side show. The liberal media is making hay out of this just to try and discredit the Republican Party. If I was a liberal I’d do the same thing—thank God I’m not. But I have to hand it to the liberals you have exposed Trump to be the publicity whore he is. He will just fade away and a real candidate will soon emerge.

  21. pazzo – Why is it everyone forgets who was the first to bring this to the forefront? The Left in Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the Presidency.

    and “the Left” dropped it almost immediately…..because, being reality-based, they realized that there was no there there.

    Your “defense” of the rabid, regressive right is “they did it first”. Something that doesn’t work for 8 year olds but, apparently, you think it works for adults.

  22. “pazzo242 says:

    and one of the top two vote getters in a Tacoma News Tribune poll of favorite Republican candidates. The other was Newt Gingrich, the philanderer

    What’s that say about Republican voters? Family Values, indeed!

  23. As long as we are going to walk down memory lane, a Clinton staffer on the campaign questioned Obama’s birth. Hillary squashed it prompty.

    The Republicans, on the other hand, have increasingly added fuel to the fire for three years and now are trying to blame Clinton.

    Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.

    That one will tough, JWD. Considering that, according to the standard set by his predisessor, Obama hasn’t take nearly enough vacation time and the country hasn’t been brought to its knees by a couple dozen Saudi terrorists, Obama has an uphill battle to prove he is the President.

  25. I’m waiting for Obama to prove he is actually Pres Obama. Come on, I’ve been waiting for 2 years (didn’t care about the first 6 months) for him to prove this.

    Obama, time to prove you are Obama.

    I’m just waiting for him to prove that he isn’t really a Republican.

    Remember when the Obamaphobes were claiming that he was a Manchurian Candidate (there are blogs claiming that he has scars on his head from brain surgery that implanted the socialist agenda). Who knew that they were partly right – but it was regressive agenda implants?

  26. Roncella says:

    Its always fun to watch the liberals/dems. rush to defend President Obama’s mistakes.

    They trip over each other as they creat excuses and reasons why Obama is not at fault for involving America in a third War in Libya, not lifting a finger to help with the climbing cost of a gallon of gas nearing 5.00 a gallon, out of control spending by Obama and dems. in the Congress, extremely high unemployment, Realestate Market in a shambles, the cost of food and utilities rising each month, on and on and on…..

    Its always helpful for Obama having the Lame/Main stream media on his side to also defend his mistakes and cover for his many inactions on so many issues he should be working on.

    But whats Obama working on ?? Why his re-election to a scond term as President of course, and continually taking vacations and trips all over the Country and the World, even as America’s currency is about to be devalued and most states are bankrupt or about to be.

    Hows all that hope and change and yes we can ringing in your ears now Liberals/progessives, democrats ???

  27. Looks like OHS* has claimed another victim!

    *OHS=Obama Hatred Syndrome

  28. ehill,
    Roncella was patient zero in the original OHS study.

  29. Donald Trump, the “brilliant” businessman who would be worth billions more if he had just taken his inheritance and stuck it in an S&P tracking index fund, has made huge mistakes before, like taking out a full-page ad calling for killing a 14 year old later determined to be not guilty:

    The Donald dropping the mother-f bomb in a political speech. Such a class act!

  30. And, while were at it….Allen West doesn’t take questions from constituents at Town Hall and has them arrested if they try.

  31. Taking off from the letter writer’s first sentence, If Obama were an honorable man, he would apologize to the American people for keeping this issue alive for three years.

  32. frosty – clearly, given the birthers insistence that the long form doesn’t prove anything, it is not within Obama’s powers to make this idiocy stop.

  33. BB wrote: “Your “defense” of the rabid, regressive right is “they did it first”. Something that doesn’t work for 8 year olds but, apparently, you think it works for adults.”

    I believe you hit the nail on the head when it comes to politics in this country.
