George Stephanopoulos has produced a Certificate of Live Birth with a notary seal.
Stephanopoulos: Well I have the president’s certificate right here. It’s certified, it’s got a certification number. It’s got the registrar of the state signed. It’s got a seal on it. And it says “This copy serves as prima facie evidence of the fact of birth in any court proceeding.”
It satisfied Michele Bachmann. Should it not end the controversy?
Donald Trump says “No.”
Donald wants Obama to show his ‘birth certificate’. He says the two are not the same by “any stretch of the imagination.”
While it seems to me that Donald Trump is grandstanding with this issue, one thing he said I really like. Trump was asked if he would reveal his income tax returns and he replied, “Maybe I will show my tax returns when Obama shows his birth certificate.” Now that would be a good exchange! Let’s hold them both to it!
