Still, accusations of shifting positions are so common in politics that it is valuable to have us provide an analysis of a shift and rate the amount of change. His mother never spent a day in the hospital," Trump said in The grandmother in Kenya is on record saying he was born in Kenya," Trump said, incorrectly, in Trump made an identical false claim in a Today show interview: "His grandmother in Kenya said he was born in Kenya and she was there and witnessed the birth, okay?
I mean, I don't know why he wouldn't release his records. But you know, honestly, I don't want to get in it," Trump said. How are you going to scare somebody about where a white guy comes from? Where does he come from that is going to engender that kind of fear? The only thing worse than having a black guy in that situation, is a black Muslim. That would have been the only thing that worked. This man is truly ambitious' because he played to two of the biggest boxes of xenophobia in this country and they went after him on exactly that basis.
He survived because it was BS and why did he have to go through it and how dare this president say 'don't come after me' for these legimate questions, when he did all that illigimate stuff. Lemon starts:. If I had to bet money, he obviously didn't find anything, he don't think he had anyone. I'd love to see proof.
I tell you what, I'll give you a bunch of time on my show; if you worked for president Trump in Hawaii, as an investigator, finding credible pieces of information, fuelling this speculation, please contact me. Come on the show and we can discuss it, even though it has no business being discussed because I don't think you exist. Lemon adds that he is shocked that people who he thought were intelligent can 'fall for stuff like this' and be 'complicit'. When the President of the United States says something, declaratively, people are going to believe it.
I think he has certainly eroded the integrity and the trust of the position but it's still going to have reach. This is why we spend so much time checking this. And I decided we'd do something on this, you know, on this show, just to get it out of the way. But you know what? This isn't one of those things that goes away quite as easily as I -- at least I thought. I thought we were talking about a bunch of folks that were on the left, or on the right, you know, the fringe that gets a little excited about, you know, tinfoil on their heads and that sort of thing.
Well, guess what, folks? There are some issues here that should be really resolved. What's really crazy about this is all the president of the United States has to do is produce a birth certificate. That's all that has to be done, and it would be over.
CNN hosts accuse Trump of hypocrisy for tweeting 'Republicans never did this to Obama'
So, we're going to be talking about that this hour. We're going to be talking with you. As a matter of fact, I want to go to the phones right now. I want to talk to Jay in Reno, Nevada. Jay, good to have you with us on The Lou Dobbs Sho w. The reason -- there's a whole bunch of points that the media has overlooked. The only thing that the Obama people have is ridicule; they don't have answers, they just make fun of anybody who asks a question. But, you know, his birthday is coming up -- I'll point out a few things nobody mentions.
His birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and everybody in the media is going to be telling us he's 48 years old. I would like to know how they know that. I have the actual document that says that this is a document certifying that there is another document. Orly Taitz's going to tell you about that. I'm not contracted with you for a long run here.
Just gotta -- gotta get to the point, if you will, Jay. Barack Obama gladly showed his tax return on April 15, but he won't show his birth certificate.
I would like to know the very simple question. Why is he spending millions of dollars in court cases all over America to prevent anyone from seeing it? His lawyers have even threatened people for even asking to see his birth certificate, not to mention all the other records that he refused to show. But we're going to keep talking about this until we get some straight answers.
Full Flop: Donald Trump abandons Barack Obama birther conspiracy | PolitiFact
You know, I can afford a lawyer or two myself, you know. But I really want to know what's going on. But when I'm looking at a certificate of live birth that is certified to be a certification that there is another document that I haven't seen, I get a little annoyed. Especially when John McCain, born in Panama, went to all of the trouble to make certain that the solicitor general rendered an opinion and a determination that he was a natural-born citizen, so why not do the same thing for President Obama?
Produce a doggone long -- so-called -- I don't even know what it a long-form birth certificate looks like -- but just produce it and be done with it. I mean, that'd satisfy you, wouldn't it, Jay? American people have a right -- the people DOBBS: One of our callers, Jay, by the way, pointed out a lot of people in states all over the country have to produce their birth certificates to get a driver's license, for crying out loud. CALLER: Every single thing he's done as president, if he is not eligible, will be deemed illegal and have to be undone. What a catastrophe. What do you think?
Well, I appreciate the call, Jay, there in Reno, Nevada. We're going to take a quick break; we're going to be taking your calls, we want to hear you.
Is President Obama -- should he produce his birth certificate -- the long form, the real deal? One of our callers, by the way, pointed out that he didn't release -- he didn't release his medical records, either. Now isn't that interesting?

And hasn't produced some other documents. What's the deal? We'll be right back.
Let's get this, you know, get into it and get out of it, and we'll get the truth and we'll be done. And I respect very much the fact that, you know, you've declared him to be a, you know, a natural-born citizen. But my question is: Are you making such a judgment based on his birth certificate that we see on the Web? SPIRO: And so the best evidence we have is the birth certificate, which has been attested to by various state officials and others with knowledge of what birth certificates from Hawaii look like.
DOBBS: So, you -- what you're saying is then the burden of proof rests not with the individual or the statement that he is or is not a natural-born citizen, but rather on those who would disprove that he or she is? SPIRO: Well, I think he's supplied adequate evidence for his birth in the United States, that the burden has certainly shifted to others to prove otherwise.
And here is part of -- you know, I'm not sure how one does that. In this case, we're talking about disproving a negative.

But rather than going to the merits of this, I want to get back -- well, first of all The first thing is to determine whether or not his birth certificate is valid. We have a certification of live birth that doesn't have a signature or an attestment of any kind attached to it. Peter Spiro, he is the foremost authority on citizenship, but I was sort of taken by the fact he declares President Obama to be a natural-born citizen without having looked at any of the real documentation that would make it so.
And the other thing is there have been lawsuits that have -- that they have been attempted to force the legislators and the Electoral College to validate his eligibility.
