What Is Donald Trump, Newborn Birther, Trying To Hide From Us?

3/29 UPDATE: Possible proof of Trump U.S. birth uncovered

What is Donald Trump hiding?

The multimillionaire developer has, overnight, become a leading voice of the “birther” movement, members of which doubt that President Barack Obama was born in the United States (and, thus, is unable to produce an authentic U.S. birth certificate).

“It’s inconceivable that, after four years of questioning, the president still hasn’t produced his birth certificate,” Trump told Newsmax. “I’m just asking President Obama to show the public his birth certificate. Why’s he making an issue out of this?" To prove how easy it was for a household employee to find his birth certificate, Trump, 64, crowed, “It took me one hour to get my birth certificate.”

As seen above, he provided the conservative web site with what he purports to be his birth certificate.

Except the document is not an official New York City birth certificate, but rather a document generated by Jamaica Hospital, where Trump’s mother Mary reportedly gave birth in June 1946. Official birth certificates are issued (and maintained) by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Office of Vital Records.

So, what is Trump trying to conceal?

On a possibly related note, Jamaica Hospital has been the recipient of significant financial largesse from the Trump family. In fact, the Queens institution includes the Trump Pavilion, a nursing and rehabilitation facility that was named for Mary Trump.

[If The Donald wants to hunt in his sock drawer for the official birth certificate, he should look for a document that includes an official Department of Health stamp and resembles city forms like ones used decades ago, like this or this.]

What is Obama hiding? All Obama does is let his many followers attack anyone what asks about his birth certificate. The more Obama followers attack, the more the questions about the mysterious birth certificate will remain. Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie looked for it. But he could'nt find it. His excuse was it's supposed to be illegal to look for it. But he's the governor. Why did he look for it in the first place if it's supposed to be illegal? He could'nt find it!
At least Trump gave a document with the attending physician's name......that's more than Obummer has been able to do.
Does someone suddenly become more born in USA than they already were simply by internet surfers knowing which doctor delivered them? Is there any doctor (or midwife for that matter) in Honolulu whose name would somehow make Obama not born in Honolulu? Fact is there's only two possibilities. He was born inside or outside USA. On the one hand we have a mountain of verified hard evidence of birth inside and absolutely diddly squat evidence of birth outside. This isn't a hard call unless someone comes up with some evidence of outside.
And the point of this article is what?
What is he trying to hide? Great point. Finally, at least this site ackowledges that when someone refuses to show their official birth certificate, they are trying to hide something. As to birthers in general, why are they any more 'crazy' for wanting proof that Obama is qualified to be president, than the people in Illinois that wanted to make sure that Rahm was a legal resident and therefore qualified to be Mayor? Isn't the Presidency more important than the Mayor of Chicago? Yet nobody called the 'resident-ers' crazy.
Perhaps you just missed the sarcasm in the article title?
Because there are legitimate questions about Rahm's residency. There is no legitimate question as to where Obama was born. Just nut jobs like The Donald pushing easily disproved claims.
It figures, someone other than Barrack Obama does something that EVERY potential presidential candidate should be REQUIRED to do and suddenly it becomes some conspiracy or "he must be hiding something". This is typical liberal 101. Rule 1: Distract from the real subject when you can't defend your own position, change the subject!. Rule 2: Discredit those who disagree with you, whether it's true or not makes no difference. Rule 3: When rules 1 and 2 don't work, try to ruin them financially with lawsuits or attacking their funding sources. Smoking Gun, what is it you really have to say? Spit it out and provide real evidence and stop this trying to create something out of the nothing you obviously have.
I was born at Jamaica Hospital in August 1947 and my birth certificate is identical. I will say that contrary to appearances here, it is signficantly smaller than 8.5" x 11". I think TMZ is confusing current procedure with legacy procedure. Not sure how anyone thinks The Donald is a Republican though... 90% of his campaign donations have been to Democrats.
Your 90% might be a bit off: In all, Trump has contributed to 96 candidates running for federal political office since the 1990 election cycle, the Center finds. Only 48 of the recipients -- exactly half -- were Republicans at the time they received their contribution, including ex-Gov. Charlie Crist (I-Fla.) and ex-Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), who both of whom received their Trump contributions as Republicans. Since the 1990 election cycle, the top 10 recipients of Trump's political contributions number six Democrats and four Republicans. Embattled Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), who was censured last year by his U.S. House colleagues, has received the most Trump money, totaling $24,750. The most recent contribution from Trump to Rangel was a $10,000 gift during the 2006 election cycle.The top Republican recipient of Trump's money is Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who has collected $13,600 from the billionaire magnate, the second most of any politician. Trump did not contribute to McCain during the 2010 election cycle, during which the former presidential candidate was facing re-election. In the most recent election cycle, Trump doled out $22,500 to political candidates, of which $16,200 benefited Democrats. Trump's donations to various political action committees and 527 groups also demonstrate his bipartisan checkbook.
