Donald Trump got his whining, complaining way after having breathed life into the “birther movement” once again, compelling the White House to re-release the President’s birth certificate earlier today. (The Obama campaign released the standard version in 2008, but die hard Obama opponents have been demanding the “long form birth certificate” issued when he was born in 1961 since the first birth certificate release.)
Of course, the egomaniac who has gaudily splashed his name over much of Manhattan and Atlantic City has taken complete credit for the revelation:
“Today I’m very proud of myself, because I’ve accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish,” Trump said, adding, “Our president has finally released a birth certificate.”
However, he said he would have to check out the certificate himself and wondered why the president didn’t do this “a long time ago.”
The release comes a day after a Gallup poll was released indicating that several Americans are still not too clear on the President’s place of birth issue:
…only 38 percent of Americans said they believe Obama was definitely born in the United States while 18 percent said he probably was and 15 percent said he probably was born in another country. Nine percent said he definitely was born elsewhere. The same poll showed only 43 percent believed Trump was born in the United States and 20 percent said he probably was.
Of the controversy, Obama said:
“We do not have time for this kind of silliness. I’ve got better stuff to do.”
