Donald Trump has been traveling around for the last week trumpeting the Birthers talking points and trying to cast doubt on whether President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and whether he is an American citizen.  This just in: the birth certificate supplied to Newsmax by would-be Republican candidate for president Donald Trump is NOT AUTHENTIC.

An image of the document featured on the organization's website indicates that Trump was born at the Jamaica Hospital in New York on June 14, 1946.

Ben Smith reports that the document released by Trump on Monday does not appear to be the potential presidential contender's official birth certificate. Officials told Politico's Maggie Haberman that if it were, it'd be marked with the seal of the Department of Health, as well as the signature of the city registrar, which do not appear on the image of the document posted on the Newsmax website.
Donald Trump is obviously lying about where he was born.  I think it's pretty clear what's going on here: Trump was pretty obviously born in a Jamaican Hospital!  That's right, Trump is not an American, he's a Jamaican--Donald Trump is a Redlegs!  For what sinister reason is Jamaica attempting to infiltrate our government?

Hey, listen--I didn't make the rules here: the Birthers did.  Rule number one is you only get one chance to present your perfectly legal and authentic birth certificate.  If you blow that opportunity, then it's because you are covering something up!  Trump blew it when he failed to submit an authentic birth certificate, so the question is now what is Donald Trump trying to hide?  Which foreign country was Donald Trump secretly born in?

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.
I tell you one thing which is not in question: under no circumstances will I ever acknowledge that Donald Trump was born in this country or that he is an American citizen.  He had his chance to present his real and official birth certificate and he failed.  Trump is a very wealthy man with plenty of money at his disposal, so I think it will be clear that any corrected documents he presents in the future will simply be cleverly executed forgeries paid for with Trump's billions.

I don't know if Donald Trump is Jamaican, but I'll never admit he's an American.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
