28. No one give Trump benefit of doubt
One) Maybe Obama born in Hawai'i, but Hawai'i on different planet? Or on Earth, but Earth in different solar system?

Two) Or maybe Trump from different planet so he not think straight?

I think number two is more likely. Otherwise, how to explain such a weird piece of S___ be so rich and respected in business world?

but then giving them everyday air time so its an issue. It's a game with the media.

Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 01:28 PM by unblock
i think he knows full well that the birther crap is a bunch of crap.


but what he also knows is that he needs to out-crazy a wide field of republicans who are trying to get airtime and money from the truly stupid crazies on the right, and talking about obama's birth certificate is the MINIMUM he needs to do to be taken seriously (ironic, isn't it) in order to have a shot at the republican nomination.

i think it's a totally cynical ploy.


i'm actually not sure which is worse, believing that crap or spouting it when you don't believe it.

16. YES! Trump was BUSTED! CNN said THEY have investigated Obama's birth and they have
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 11:50 AM by jenmito
found he WAS born in Hawaii. Remember when Trump said nobody remembered Obama from kindergarten or his young days? CNN showed video of people talking about Obama as a classmate from kindergarten and his young days. So he claimed he never SAID that, and even if kids DID know him, that's irrelevant since that doesn't prove he was BORN there.

Suzanne Malvaeux said that the COLB IS the official document in HI, and Trump said he didn't believe it. Then she said that the governor of HI knew Obama was born there because he was close friends with Obama's mother, and Trump just said he didn't believe THAT, either.

THEN she said Obama's grandmother did NOT say he was born in Kenya and she showed him a correct translation of what she said, and he dismissed that, too.

Everything she said that proved him wrong, he said, "Oh, really?" :eyes:

20. Why hasn't every other channel (NBC & MSNBC) done this? Everybody knows he spews birther lies.
Why is CNN the first ones to actually try to really challenge him? He can't take being challenge and everything he says is provably FALSE.

31. The evening shows don't let him get away with it but I've seen him on far too many
morning and daytime NBC & MSNBC shows (also The View but that's ABC - he did it on GMA also) just lying and talking over the hosts with his lies over and over again. It sounds like CNN finally was prepared with the info to challenge him to his face which was needed a long time ago. I'm just so sick of it.

their morning show. They disputed everything he said and when Trump said "then why won't he show his real birth certificate?!' They both said, in unison, HE DID!!

that no doctors or nurses came forward verifying they were there when he was born. Like doctors and nurses remember every baby they've delivered - "Oh, look doctor. This baby is very special. I think he may be president some day! I'm going to remember his name."

25. He Was So OVER THE TOP This AM On Joey-Scar's Show This AM...
Went on and on about how the birth certificate wasn't even printed in the papers for a week. Kept talking about how HIS certificate contained reams of information about HIS birth. Such a narcissist! Thought he couldn't get worse about this, but he says all his stuff is verifiable, and then of course kept talking about HOW MUCH money he's made and HOW RICH he his.

Funny, NEVER mentioned how many times he filed bankruptcy!! I'm not sure how many times it really is, but I think I've heard of a couple just in passing. Seems like THAT'S how he's found a way to make more money, file and be rid of your monetary obligations, then start all over again!

He seems to be completely obsessed, but sounds more unhinged about this as time goes by. My birth certificate only show where I was born and the date, it doesn't even have a time when I was born!

Here's wishing he gets some bad reverse kharma on this one...
:wtf: :eyes: :silly:

32. Checked Wikipedia & Found This Information About His Financial Situation.
He has since recovered but who knows what he kind of shady deals he continues to make.

Would not some of THIS information come to the forefront if he seriously wants to run? He puffs himself up as such a financial guru, however I suppose if he's been able to make "deals" such as he has, perhaps he really fits right in with all the other crooks out there with ALL THE MONEY! He's such a phony full of BS.

By 1989, the effects of recession left Trump unable to meet loan payments. Trump financed the construction of his third casino, the $1 billion Taj Mahal, primarily with high-interest junk bonds. Although he shored up his businesses with additional loans and postponed interest payments, by 1991 increasing debt brought Trump to business bankruptcy<13> and the brink of personal bankruptcy. Banks and bond holders had lost hundreds of millions of dollars, but opted to restructure his debt to avoid the risk of losing more money in court. The Taj Mahal re-emerged from bankruptcy on October 5, 1991, with Trump ceding 50% ownership in the casino to the original bondholders in exchange for lowered interest rates on the debt and more time to pay it off.<26>

On November 2, 1992, the Trump Plaza Hotel was forced to file a prepackaged Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection plan after being unable to make its debt payments. Under the plan, Trump agreed to give up a 49% stake in the luxury hotel to Citibank and five other lenders. In return Trump would receive more favorable terms on the remaining $550+ million owed to the lenders and retain his position as chief executive, though he would not be paid and would not have a role in day-to-day operations.<27>

By 1994, Trump had eliminated a large portion of his $900 million personal debt<28> and reduced significantly his nearly $3.5 billion in business debt. While he was forced to relinquish the Trump Shuttle (which he had bought in 1989), he managed to retain Trump Tower in New York City and control of his three casinos in Atlantic City. Chase Manhattan Bank, which lent Trump the money to buy the West Side yards, his biggest Manhattan parcel, forced the sale of a parcel to Asian developers. According to former members of the Trump Organization, Trump did not retain any ownership of the site's real estate - the owners merely promised to give him about 30 percent of the profits once the site was completely developed or sold. Until that time, the owners wanted to keep Trump on to do what he did best: build things. They gave him a modest construction fee and a management fee to oversee the development. The new owners also allowed him to put his name on the buildings that eventually rose on the yards because his well-known moniker allowed them to charge a premium for their condos.<29>

Trump was elected to the Gaming Hall of Fame in 1995.<30>

In 1995, he combined his casino holdings into the publicly held Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts. Wall Street drove its stock above $35 in 1996, but by 1998 it had fallen into single digits as the company remained profitless and struggled to pay just the interest on its nearly $3 billion in debt. Under such financial pressure, the properties were unable to make the improvements necessary for keeping up with their flashier competitors. Finally, on October 21, 2004, Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts announced a restructuring of its debt.<31> The plan called for Trump's individual ownership to be reduced from 56 percent to 27 percent, with bondholders receiving stock in exchange for surrendering part of the debt. Since then, Trump Hotels has been forced to seek voluntary bankruptcy protection to stay afloat. After the company applied for Chapter 11 Protection in November 2004, Trump relinquished his CEO position but retained a role as Chairman of the Board. In May 2005<32> the company re-emerged from bankruptcy as Trump Entertainment Resorts Holdings.<33>

36. Birthers pull the "release the Long Form BC" crap which Trump said he thinks
might have Obama listed as a Muslim on it but the state of Hawaii said that OLD form didn't even have a spot for religion.

Just like the Birth Announcement in the newspaper - those came from the State of Hawaii's Dept of Health - not the family.

Everything he says is completely bullshit and he just gets to spew it and, generally, the journalists just look at him and say nothing. I'm glad someone finally told him he was full of shit to his face.

He'd have to disclose his finances and tax returns. He'll NEVER do that. He's just promoting himself and enjoying the limelight. Plus, I'm sure there are too many bimbos in his past.

I'd bet a month's pay on it.
