    When asked "why not release the real birth certificate" the talking heads say "they'll just move the goalposts". I think–let 'em move the posts. It takes only a minute to OK the release of the certificate, and then it's DONE. This gives Obama the chance to play the "trump" card, and anything after that is pointless.

    Trump would have us believe that Obama's family "knew" he would be President in 2008, so "trumped" up his
    birth certificate in 1961. He would also have us believe that if Obama was born in Kenya, his mother rushed to Honolulu therefore the birth was announced 2 weeks late , as part of this conspiracy, so that the "prophecy" of Barack's future Presidency could be fulflled. The truth is, wherever Barack Obama was born, his mother was a US Citizen, and through her, he has US citizenship, despite the Kenyan citizenship of his father. One US Citizen parent grnts Citizenship to any child born anywhere! That's the law. Why don't you stress that?

    Why do you continue to waste valuable airtime on this crap from Trump? It's obvious that he has no idea what he's talking about and it it is a disservice to your viewers who want to hear real and meaningful news and commentary to spend time on what is essentially a political ad from an idiot who has no chance of being elected to anything. Please spare us more of this idiocy or you will lose much of your audience

    President Obama does not own this man anything. Trump needs to go back to acting...as we can see that is what he does best. This is way too much of a reality show for him. The more he speaks the more I see how classless he is. He is a bully and that’s all he is.

    Trump is confusing his personna on Celebrity Apprentice as a tough boss with giving an honest interview. He believes that raising his voice & talking over interviewers such as Anderson Cooper will convince people of his specious arguments.He will not end up running for President because he cannot bear losing. His current show is about distraction, media facetime & ego.

    Have you seen the You Tube clip of President Obama's wife saying that her husband was born in Kenya? Is the President's wife a birther also? i agree with Michell Obama, the President was born in Kenya.

    Why doesn't anyone present proof to the contrary about President Obamas birth somewhere else. Basically, prove the null hypothesis! Prove to the American public where he was born other than Hawaii It doesn't exist
