Never let it be said that Donald Trump is a man reluctant to put his money where his mouth is. Granted, the guy has a lot of money. So, luckily, he also has a huge fucking mouth.
Since he's recently unfurled his birther flag and come out as the new Orly Taitz — with a less-foreigny accent, but slightly sillier hair — it only makes sense that since he's so concerned about President Obama producing his real real birth certificate (as opposed to his fake real birth certificate, which has already long-since been produced), Trump should produce his as well.
And he has…
Hey, what was all that stuff that Trump was talking about non-valid birth certificates?
Is it anything at all like this?
But after several New York City-based readers contacted POLITICO's Maggie Haberman, her call to city officials revealed that an actual birth certificate, which is issued by the Department of Health, would have the agency's seal and also a signature of the city registrar – neither of which the Trump document has. Officials said the city Health Department is the "sole issuing authority" of official birth certificates in New York, and that the document would clearly say so, and "city officials said it's not an official document."…
Trump's mother, it should be noted, was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This fact pattern — along with the wave of new questions surrounding what he claims is a birth certificate — raises serious doubts about his eligibility to serve as President of the United States.
This might be a serious setback if he were in any way a serious candidate.
Instead, it's just hilarious.
