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.]

Good one Donald! Let's see how far the press takes the above "birth certificate", which is not a long form nor legal birth certificate. The hypocrisy of the press is glaringly obvious, to funny... LMAO!
It's such an obvious set-up from Trump. He's clearly counting on leftists to live down to the basement-level of not very bright. Looks like he will not be disappointed, judging by some of the hate-filled, uncivil deranged leftoids posting here. They really are slack-jawed morons.
Hilarious. Congratulations YOU'VE JUST BEEN PUNKED BY TRUMP. By releasing exactly the same type of reproduction "certificate" that Obama has out in the public domain, Trump gets LEFTISTS to shriek all girly like that it's not his real certificate. So when Trump releases the real deal in a day or two, wotcha gonna do then? Besides forget BIRTHER... I'm an EARTHER. I no longer believe Obama was born on this planet.... let's start with those freakin' ears!
It is not the same. Trump's is the typical original BC issued by hospitals in the 1950's and 1960's and signed by the birthing physician. Certificates of live birth are not the same. My adopted children have a short form state issued certificate that DID NOT qualify when I tried to have them registered as citizens of Ireland through their great grandmother's heritage. Ireland wanted the ORIGINAL BC issued by the hospital and signed by the attending birthing doctor. An impossibility. By the way kids all over this country are requesting dual citizenship through a immigrated grandparent or great grandparent because they travel in Europe extensively for business and want to protect themselves from Islamic terrorists and EU rules that limit work permits. Some pretty amazing stories out there.
I would like to see the back. The front has the official seal of the hospital of Jamica. The back has Trumps mother's thumbprints and his baby prints. Proof enough for me. The "official" is kept by the Dept of Health. Now, Obama's proof was obtained in 2007, does not have any such "proof" on it and the "official" is MIA or covered up or what have you. It's just missing. So, Trump is right. What does Obama have to hide? It's not about Obama. Who cares about Obama, he's a waste. It's about the right of every citizen to know the person that occupies the highest position in the land, is qualified to do so.
Trump has pulled a good one on everyone. Now the entire media and the left wing have become experts at detecting what items are on a "real" birth certificate. Their hypocrisy of critiquing Donald and ignoring Barry Sutoro's failure to produce same is priceless. LOL. Way to go Donald! Next challenge to Donald and Barry- release your transcripts from kindergarten to grad school.
Put The Smoking Dope in that group. I can't believe they allowed this article to be posted. I guess the irony just flew straight over their heads.
It's just a ploy to get people fired up and posting some comments... sort of like throwing chum into a shark tank.
Very disappointing, "Smoking Gun"... if you would put your investigative tools to good use, you'd have quite a story on your hands. If you took the time to research this issue, you would learn that what is central to this is the natural born citizenship aspect (not only citizen, but born to two citizen parents). But, perhaps, you already know about all the sealed/concealed records, the hundreds of lawsuits, what DNC/Pelosi did/did not do to "certify" their candidates, and the political prisoner, Lt. Col. Lakin. Perhaps, you think you're protecting Obama and your partisan agenda. But, if you truly cared about him, you'd realize what a dangerous position he has put himself and us in... vulnerable to extortion and blackmail.
