Donald Trump Takes His Search For Obama’s Birth Certificate To Hawaii

Well, we guess potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump didn’t get to where he is today by lacking perseverance. The businessman and TV star has continued his search for President Barack Obama’s birth certificate by tapping people in Hawaii to help him “study” the circumstances surrounding Obama’s birth.

Trump explained his mission to Today host Meredith Vieira:

I am saying I want to see the birth certificate. It’s very simple. I want to see the birth certificate. How come his own family doesn’t know which hospital he was born in? How come– forget about birth certificates. Let’s say there’s no birth certificate. How come in the hospital itself, okay? This is one of the…in the hospital itself, there’s no records of his birth. In other words, it doesn’t say how much they paid, where is the doctor, here’s your room bill. You know, all the…

He adds that his people in Hawaii “can’t believe what they’re finding.”

But, despite his by now extremely publicized concern with Obama’s nationality and the fact that, as he puts it, Obama “seizes countries, but he doesn’t win,” Trump doesn’t dislike the President. He just kind of thinks he’s dragging the U.S. straight down to Hell. That’s all:

If I had my choice of having Obama do great as a president, and do a really great job for this country, and not running, as opposed to running – I’d prefer that he did a great job. I love this country. But, this country is going to hell.

With Trump effectively making Obama’s birth the issue with which he’s most concerned, we wonder whether voters will have his back – or slowly back away – come 2012.
