So Donald Trump went on CNN to talk with Wolf Blitzer this afternoon and for 10 full minutes they prattled on about virtually nothing but birther goodness. Well, they also talked about how much Trump loved Mitt Romney ... but other than that, it was birther, birther, birther.

In the interview, Trump claimed that President Obama himself had admitted he was born in Kenya (false), that the governor of Hawaii was a Democrat (false), and that Obama had denied living in Indonesia (false). Trump claimed that high-ranking Hawaii officials had doubts about President Obama's birthplace ... but refused to name names. Trump said Obama's newspaper birth announcements were part of a conspiracy to protect his status. And Trump even finally said what his investigators in Hawaii had found. "Plenty," he said, before refusing to elaborate further.

The interview ended with Trump giving a fulsome endorsement of his man Mitt Romney, who called Trump "good people" yesterday. "A lot of people feel very good about Mitt Romney," Trump said. "I think he's going to do a great job."

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.
