I will make this short. President Trump is charging the Washington Post with presidential harassment.

What it is, isn’t relevant to my post.

What is relevant, regarding presidential harassment, where does Lying Donald Trump’s telling the world that Barack Obama was not born in the United States — and that story went on for a long time — including being revived by Trump in the 2016 election campaign.

Then, one day, Trump called the media in to make an announcement: That President Obama was born in the United States. Took No Questions.

Trump had said he had investigators on the ground in Hawaii. This wasn’t something he overheard say, Trump insisted Obama was not born in the United States. Period.

I am angry at Obama and the Democrats, and the Media for never talking about this! Trump’s insisting that Obama was not born in the United States is a lie. A flat-out lie. Yet, no one will say it.

That was the “original fake news!” Yes, Obama was not born in America is a lie, total fake news, but, the stupid media never called him on it.

The media just sits there, as well as the Democrats, and take Trump’s lies.

|||Keep in mind that he was dragging his feet on presenting this. He had spoke of a copy that he found in his mother's things in a book he wrote, yet that one did not come forward when he was asked. It appeared that Obama's birth certificate was lost in a fire in HI. An electronic copy was produced. In April 2011, Fuddy verified the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate and in a plane crash, 9 people aboard, and she was the only one that did not survive. (Remains me so much of the Clinton's "body count" - google that as it is very interesting.) I think Obama's half brother knew the truth about his brother. To get a Real ID for Kansas DL, you have to have a paper copy that is certified of your birth certificate, so I don't think it was unreasonable to demand that of a presidential candidate and I don't know how he got away with not having it for so long. Maybe he used a fake copy with the State of Illinois, I hear there is a big demand for those, and that is pretty easy to get one.||| Presidents seem to drag their feet alot. Just look at Trumps wall... or his tax returns. President Obamas birth certificate has been produced and certified, end of story. You don't like him personally which is the only reason why you remain blind to the evidence that sits in front of you. Electronic copies are the normal way to back up physical copies in case of a (gasp) fire. Maybe he used a fake copy from IL... lol jeez lets throw more fake news around, smh.

Hillary started the birther thing in the 2009 dem primary

SnowGypsy

Oh, good grief! It actually began in 2004 in Illinois when political candidate, Andy Martin was calling Obama a closet Muslim. When Hillary's chances of winning the primary against Obama started to look slim, some of her hardcore supporters revived the birther issue. Frankly, knowing how "shifty" Hillary is, I suspect she probably paid someone to spread it as we all know how desperate she was for the nomination. And, so what? The economy is looking better everyday, and the lineup for the Dems for a presidential candidate is good for a laugh or two.

Where anything actually began isn't the topic! Donald Trump spewed FAKE News about Obama not being born in the United States. He made a major Tah-Doo that went on for months! That was a LIE, FAKE NEWS. Hey, I believe I saw in the bible where CAIN was the first FAKE NEWSER! Which nothing. I am 79 and Republicans have LIED AND LIED about Democrats! OBAMA WAS BORN IN THE UNITED STATES. TRUMP CARRIED ON LIES FOR MONTHS THAT HE WAS NOT. Nothing you wrote is NOTHING. TRUMP IS A LIAR, EVEN REPUBLICANS DON'T SAY HE ISN'T! He also broke the law...with FAKE Medical Deferment! Trump has also said he did NOT support THE Viet Nam War! Trump is a CHICKEN.

I don't think Obama was born in the USA. He didn't have a copy of his birth certificate to present showing that. One wonders how he entered school, got a driver's license, etc. without one. I did not support the Vietnam War. My father was in WWII, I am a veteran, my husband is a veteran and our older son is active duty. I have many uncles that participated in WWII covering all branches. I am aware that liberals are repelled by facts, so I expected your reaction.

Obama does have a copy of his birth certificate proving his citizenship. Obama was born in Hawaii, and a certified copy of his birth certificate is available for anyone to see, along with assurances from Hawaii officials that the document is authentic. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. Republican objections that the document is fake because it says "African" instead of "negro" for the fathers race when Obamas immigrant father was actually born in Africa is dumb and has been debunked. As for the argument that opening the birth certificate’s PDF file in Adobe Illustrator reveals the presence of multiple layers, which proves that the image was altered, was also debunked by an Adobe-certified expert. Not sure how much more proof you need, or not that it matters anyway. I'm sure you'll be telling us to google some nonsense that fits your political view. No thanks I'll stick to the facts backed up with actual evidence. Why are you even still bringing this up anyway? Silly.

He doesn't have to show his BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Obama is a Citizen. Besides, Obama DID show his Birth Certificate. Have you asked Trump to show his INCOME TAXES? Hillary did, but, of course, Hillary Clinton is an Honorable Citizen, not like Trump...who won't show his taxes, and who got his FOREIGN Born Wife FAST TRACKED Citizenship. Melania never had to get in back of the line. Melania is also an Adulterer. Melania married a Divorced (twice) man, Donald Trump. JESUS said anyone who MARRIES a Divorced person is guilty of Adultry. HEY, it is what Jesus said...LOOK it up in the Bible!

Doesn't matter at all when it started! TRUMP said Obama was NOT born in the UNITED STATES. Trump was emphatic, had (he said, person/people investing and had uncover a lot of evidence.) Trump LIED AND LIED AND LIED Repeatedly. IT WAS FAKE NEWS, FAKE NEWS, FAKE NEWS! The mainstream media is Factual. Republicans CAN'T HANDLE TRUTH! (To Quote Jack Nicholson in a movie.)
