He can not help it
Trump finally acknowledged the truth about Obama's birth place.
News here is pointing out that he prefaced it with 2 lies.
1) that Hilary Clinton started the false story about Obama's birth place which they point out is well documented that it was not Hilary or her campaign that started it
2) that he ended it by making Obama produce his birth certificate but of course he did not let it end there but has been quoted after the fact of the certificate that he did not believe it was true.
Commentators say he lost rather than gained from finally acknowledging the truth because of more lies wrapped around it.
News also has a clip of him threatening Hilary with supporters of your gun lovers after making the false claim that Hilary was going to take away your guns.
He just can not help himself from being a bully, racist liar.
Re: He can not help it
Trump really ticked off CNN today with his BS news conference. If there was a honeymoon period with Trump and the Press, it's over. You can only fool the media so many times, before your ignored. I suspect that is close to where Trump is tonight.
I hope he enjoyed his rise in the polls, my guess is they nose dive again.
Better correct Wiki then
Origins of the claims
In 2007, Mark Penn, Hillary’s chief campaign strategist wrote a strategy memo that included querying the American-ness of Senator Barack Obama, who was seen as Hillary’s principal rival for the nomination. Then during the Democratic Party's 2008 presidential primaries, Patti Solis Doyle, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager in 2008 stated that a Clinton campaign staffer circulated the Birther conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was born outside the U.S. and so ineligible to serve in the presidency. in anonymous e-mails that questioned Obama's citizenship in an attempt to revive Clinton's faltering primary election campaign.
Jim Geraghty of the conservative website National Review Online may have sparked further speculation on June 9, 2008, when he asked that Obama release his birth certificate. Geraghty wrote that releasing his birth certificate could debunk several false rumors circulating on the Internet, namely: that his middle name was originally Muhammad rather than Hussein; that his mother had originally named him "Barry" rather than "Barack"; and that Barack Obama, Sr. was not his biological father, as well as the rumor that Barack Obama was not a natural-born citizen.
In October 2009, anonymous e-mails circulated claiming that the Associated Press (AP) had reported Obama was "Kenyan-Born". The claims were based on an AP story that had appeared five years earlier in a Kenyan publication, The Standard. The rumor-checking website Snopes.com found that the headline and lead-in sentence describing Obama as born in Kenya and misspelling his first name had been added by the Kenyan newspaper, and did not appear in the story issued by the AP or in any other contemporary newspaper that picked up the AP story.
In 2012, Breitbart.com published a copy of a promotional booklet that Obama's literary agency, Acton & Dystel, printed in 1991 (and later posted to their website, in a biography in place until April 2007) which misidentified Obama's birthplace and states that Obama was "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii." When this was posted by Breitbart, the booklet's editor said that this incorrect information had been her mistake, not based on anything provided to her agency by Obama.

The birther issue was one of those things that Obama, himself milked by not coming clean from the get-go, but he had the political capital and could do it..so it is what it is. Trump accomplished getting Obama to release a Mickey Mouse copy of "something" ...enough that he got off the hook with most of the electorate. Trump wanted Obama to release his college transcripts and offered $5 million to a charity of Obama`s choosing, Obama wisely declined, because it may have been revealed Obama was getting goodies as a "foreign exchange" student. A red face moment, but I doubt it would matter to the Kool Aid brigade.
If it was ever proven that Obama was a foreigner and that would`ve been used to somehow remove him from office, the "martians" would`ve burned the whole damned country down and laws would`ve quickly been changed on the requirements to be president. So, bottomline, in a growingly corrupt nation of voters, it was a no win issue and Trump is better for putting it behind him.
Re: He can not help it
Jen, if "tax returns" and the fact Trump questioned the legitimacy of a "exoctic" president is all you have on Trump..well it certainly didn`t hurt Trump so far, he`s in margin of error, neck & neck or ahead of Secretary Clinton. I say Trump needs to keep doin` what he`s doin`...with the Kellyanne filter, of course 🙂

He is one slippery, smelly dog tard.
A slick pivot, and just offered a get out of jail free card to all the members of The Tribe.
He's clever but not nearly smart enough to figure that one out. There's some Stone, Ailes, Bannon in it for sure.
At this moment it has dawned on me that he's going to win. Satanic forces will overtake the Last Great Hope for Mankind.
Whatever The Don is, the three I mention are profoundly evil human beings.
