Donald Trump's next line of attack: he'll accuse Obama of not eating hot dogs
Developer Donald Trump launched a new attack against President Barack Obama on Thursday, accusing the president of having never eaten a single hot dog in his life and asserting it “raised questions” about the president.
This was Trump’s latest offensive against the president since Obama released his long form birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. Under state law such documents usually aren’t released, but an exception was made for the president after Trump and others claimed the president was hiding something.
“It turns out that birth certificate had the same information as the shorter one did that he released in 2008,” Trump said in an interview on Good Morning America. “Instead of admitting I was wrong about the birther issue, I’m going to find some other way of boosting ratings for my reality show. I have never seen the president actually eat a hot dog and to me that raises suspicions about him. I read somewhere or heard from someone that he doesn’t.”
Since Trump made this charge, the White House pointed to several pictures taken by the media and regular citizens of Obama eating hot dogs at various locations during the 2008 campaign. Trump asserted these pictures could’ve been faked and he called on the White House to produce the negatives from these pictures or the storage cards they were taken from.
