Skip to comments.Mitt Romney’s New BFF: Donald Trump (says Obama told the truth about Kenya birth!)
Posted on 05/25/2012 2:49:30 PM PDT by Seizethecarp
A book publisher came out three days ago and said that in his written synopsis of his book, Trump went on, he said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. His mother never spent a day in the hospital.
Thats what he told the literary agent, Trump insisted. Thats the way life works
He didnt know he was running for president, so he told the truth. The literary agent wrote down what he said
He said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia
Now theyre saying it was a mistake. Just like his Kenyan grandmother said he was born in Kenya, and she pointed down the road to the hospital, and after people started screaming at her she said, Oh, I mean Hawaii. Give me a break.

Last month, a Huffpo reporter camped out in front of Trump Tower where Trump was hosting a birthday party for Ann Romney and the reporter pounced on each guest showing up to the party to demand whether they were comfortable with the Romney's association with unrepentant "birther," Trump.
Barry's team is running scared! Now why would that be if it was so obvious that Barry was born in HI?
ping to Trump declaring that Barry “told the truth” about being born in Kenya in book promo...
Trump has been investigating Obama’s Kenyan birth and has said he has solid evidence to prove Obama was born in Kenya.
I bet he releases that evidence very soon.
Note that Willard has distanced himself from “birther” claims but pointedly has NOT distanced himself from Trump.
I don’t think trump has done anything. He just a blow hard. Trump has done NOTHING on his own.
...and the hits keep coming...

Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.

"I understand Donald Trump's concern for the U.S. Constitution. I'm also concerned about it as well as the legacy of the Obama Presidency. When I move into the White House the new attorney general will initiate a thorough and complete investigation in order to clarify to the American people that Barack Obama was indeed eligible and was the legitimate President of these United States. However, if by some chance the accusations turn out to be correct, there is a promise that anybody in Congress whether they be republican or democrat will be legally held accountable and justice will be served for any wrong doing and illegal activity. Let that be a warning to the leaders of Congress who have taken the oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America."
I wonder what the social or financial benefit would have been for him to claim he was born in Kenya? Is there a Kenyan accent?
You know...if you always strive to tell the truth, you only have to remember things one way.
But when you start piling on the lies...for whatever the reason...soomner or later it gets so complicated that you will get all hung up in them, literally ham-strung bt them, and nothing you can say will ever really make sense.
That’s where Obama is.
And the only people believing it (or acting like they believe it) are the people so invested in him for their careers, for their news cycles, for their food stamps, for their...whatever it is they depend on him for, that they cannot dare entertain the truth...or let anyone else entertain it either.
The truth is like a solid rock hitting their house of cards and their palace of glass.
Obama and those around him have become the living emmbodiement of the “Emperor has no clothes.”
But those of us who love the Constitution and the moral and republican principles upon which it is founded, and look to God in Heaven for our Rights, and to ourselves for personal responsibility for our actions, do not have to be hung up and ham-strung by all the lies. We see it for what it is and call it that way.
The simple truth is, Obama is a Marxist ideolog, who has a very, very clouded history because it has been intentionally covered up. Normal people do not have this kind of trouble indicating where they are from, where they were born, what passports they used to take trips, what their college records say, etc., etc.
THE MAN WHO DESPISES AMERICA
THE TRUTH ABOUT OBAMA’S UPBRINGING
I agree. Trump has nothing. He is playing a deep game though, and I am interested in what he hopes to gain.
The manager/attorney/director whoever he was, the guy that Trump had the “Birther” researchers send their material to, STATED the he KNEW obama was born in Hawaii. So, why is Trumps top trusted guy, who was responsible for collecting the material from the researchers, certain that obama was indeed born in HI, and his boss pretends to have proof that obama was born elsewhere?
First he’ll select Arsenio Hall as the Celebrity Apprentice to show ‘he’s all good with the black folk’, then he’ll go into bashing Obama, and possibly VP candidate? It COULD happen.
My husband was going to a speech therapist recently. She is a black native Kenyan. She speaks very proper English and she said they teach English in the schools.
You never let your opponent know what cards you hold.
What if he didn't? What if he told the truth then and lied later [when his presidential asperations ran aground on the belated knowledge that Kenyan-born wouldn't cut it]?
Something made this big name literary agency pursue Obama—a man w no publication experience and no writing cred. They recruited him and gave him a fat advance to write a book (which he's never written—though he spent the entire advance) all out of the blue. Why? *Just* because he was the first president of the Harvard Law Review ‘of color’?
That alone would not be enough. Not for a shiftless stoner from HI.
Now, being born in Kenya—that changes things. That is a story the liberals at the agency would find compelling.
But would they go so far as to advance well over a hundred thousand dollars to a man who had horrible writing skills [read any of the material he is known to have written all by himself—it would suck at the HS level, much less beyond]and an unremarkable tenure as a do-nothing pres of the Harvard Law Review [his editors described him as a disengaged showboat who never actually lifted a finger to get their publications out] if all he did was *claim* to be born in Kenya?
It seems likely, if not certain, that ‘fact-checker’ *did* check him. She discovered—as was far easier in those days—that he really was born in Kenya. Her bosses liked the picture that emerged—i.e.: Kenyan-born man makes history as first mixed-race Harvard Law Review President’—and cut the check.
Unless you think big literary agencies throw hundreds of thousands of dollars around at a whim, my version makes sense. Tell me how it doesn't.
PS: This also explains why Obama thought HI was located in Asia. You know the geographical location of your birthplace. He knows all about Kenya, but he doesn't even know that HI is not in Asia. Think about it.
That would be just too excellent to utterly discredit Obama, every presidential act of his, and his enablers and apologists all at the same time, if only for the sheer comedy value. Probably way too much to expect but Obama's official biography maintained by his agent stated he was born in Kenya and he hasn't explained where that bio came from or personally addressed the issue at all. The idea that it was merely a "fact checking error" by the agency doesn't pass the laugh test. Obama deserves to be hounded about this.
“Now why would that be if it was so obvious that Barry was born in HI?”
They are scared because Obama is looking less likely to win regardless of where he was born, and now they’ll have to contend with Trump’s money working against him. I’m no fan of Trump, but he has a measure of celebrity and a LOT of money.
Just to be clear-The AP stands for African Press, not associated press.
I love it. That would send the criminals a message they were in clear and present danger.
John King was on CNN a few minutes ago mocking out birthers and Trump. Says it will hurt Romney, although I can’t understand why. Romney isn’t a birther as far as I know.
