    Not in 235 years has a sitting President been asked to show his papers! Black men in this country use to have to show their papers to out in public. His only crime is that he is a black man who became President of the United States of America. Trump needs to take the credit for showing that there are still racist and stupid people in this country. I would like to know if he ever requested a birth certificate from any other President or comment on his educational qualifications. President Obama's only different is that he is Black!!!! No other President was asked this question.

    What's next? Will the birther's claim the State of Hawaii is covering up? oh wait... they already have. Will they claim Obama didn't deserve his Presidency of Harvard Law Review? oooh wait... they are now. Will they claim that Obama didn't write his book aor anything else? Ohhh those pesky birthers. They've done that too. I have one question for them and Trump: IS ignorance bliss?

    Personally if Obama wasn't born here is it correct you can't run for United States President position? if im wrong on my history I think its guideline on running for office. And I think everyone shouldn't even bring up anything on any president birth location its not even part of the position to wonder where the president is born.

    If any president birth place is a big issue I think all candidates of Rep, Dem, Independence etc should get look at too no just one particular president like obmama. Seriously ppl!

    The Obama birth certificate/birther issue was news at one time. It no longer is. To continue devoting resources and so much air time to it is a form of artificial resuscitation and borders on tabloid journalism. If anything, it belongs on The Ridiculist (maybe it's already been there and I missed it).

    CNN does a great job of covering real news, and last time i looked there was no lack of that! Please refocus on what's important.

    This problem with the birth cert. is a joke. This problem should have surfaced while he was in Chicago any number of times as an employee there.

    "President" Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama definitely has some major problem lurking in his closet, or he would not spend over $2 Million to cover it up, and prevent the courts from even looking into his birth, health, and school records!!!

    The original birth certificate is only the tip of the iceberg. Many Americans are finding out that Obama's past is shrouded in mystery. Because it Obama did not initially, and still refuses to provide not only the original birth certificate, but also college grades, a reasonable explanation of his Connecticut issued SS#, the reason he used to go by Barry Soetero, the reason he and Michelle are no longer licensed to practice law, the reason his books "Dreams of My Father" and "Audacity of Hope" are written in the (not similar but) identical writing style of Bill Ayres, whereas his previous pieces are a completely different and much more elementary writing style, how he was able to afford the travel abroad as a young man, afford Harvard and Columbia, and his home in Chicago, in other words, who has bankrolled him for many years. People want to know, and no amount of "Keeping Us Honest" will make the average American on the street go away. Journalistic standards usually require that a candidate is vetted long before he is in office. Shame on you Anderson Cooper for continuing to give Obama a free pass.

    It's racism pure and simple. Right from day one all we heard was whether Obama is Christian or Muslim as if being Muslim is a bad thing. Then it's the birth certificate which is so erroneous. He should never have had to show it in the first place. His Mother is American. She can have her baby anywhere in the World and the baby is American, however he was born in Hawaii.
