Wolf Blitzer interview meltdown with Donald Trump



Blitzer wanted to push Trump on the birther issue which Trump said wasn’t even supposed to be part of the interview. Trump did discuss it but felt a bit side-swiped with it as he wanted to discuss the economy and China (of course!). And it gets a little heated after Blitzer tells Trump he’s being a little ridiculous (via Buzzfeed):

GOOD FOR D.TRUMP If the media biased did their job 4 yrs ago and investigated BHO we wouldn’t need this conversation. Trump has the right to ask since BHO is so corrupted and backed by Soros. He is a student of Sol Alinski and does Soros’ bidding. Wolf & the media Brian Williams, Joe Scarborough, Matt all should have vetted him, instead they have thrills running up their legs. Why aren’t they doing their job now!!?? Still getting thrills? What about BHO’s college transcripts? They asked for Pres Bush’s plus his military records. How did BHO get into college floating on drugs his last 2 yrs of highschool? Isn’t it on the application for running for president about drugs? For any political office. Guess it should be, it’s on other job applications, i.e. police, firemen, teachers, office workers, sports, etc. GO GOV. ROMNEY…WE NEED YOU. GO Senator Rubio for VP

Donald Trump is only in this for the money. As contrasted with his craven attention-seeking and profit-seeking motivations, anyone who actually believes this is really, really stupid.

What Hawaii says, and what Obama’s publicist says is 2 entirely different things. Hawaii has a reason to LIE .. Obama’s publicist didn’t, up until NOW. So many questions, and so few answers.

Trump gave it back to Wolfie and later last night he did the same to Greta and her Democratic Talking Points.
Wolfie and Greta did not come across too well!!!

This is what I wrote yesterday: ‘Always look at what the other hand is doing. I’m searching now to see what new treaty or executive order has slipped under the radar‘ – Nuke This is what I concluded: Yesterday, on the day Romney went over the top in delegates to lock in the Republican nomination, the White House talking points memo went out to Wolfie, and the other Barack Slime Media, to ask Trump for an interview on the economy and China relations. When he got him on air, he immediately went into the birther issue, with video and pictures prepared to support it, against Trump’s complaint that he wasn’t there to talk about the birther issue. This morning, I see the White House has blamed Romney for not reputiating Trump and all the birthers and claimed that Trump ‘once again’ dove into the ‘wild-a$$, crazy’ birther issue and won’t… Read more »

Why hasn’t anyone went into the birth certificate files, pull up everyone born the week Barry was and compare them? I was born in 1965 and my birth certificate like many during this time was prepared with a manual typewriter with an officail stamp. Only two types of font existed in those days, pica and elite. It’s probably a safe bet that Barry’s bc doesn’t at all resemble the others whether it be format, the form used, and the actual copy which Barry should be able to present like all of us these days just to renew a drivers licsence.

I think Trump would have done a lot better if after he said that he was there to talk about the economy and China as Wolfe had said and Wolfe kept persisting with the birther thing he would have done one of two things, either…

1. Said “ok, well Hawaii says he was born there his publisher has said that he was born in Kenya. So one of them is a lie. Why won’t the President come out and tell us which one is a lie.”

or

2. Just hung up the phone and told Wolfe to fill his airtime with someone else if he’s going to keep beating this horse.

This is the same trap McCain repeatedly fell for. Bait and switch.

When you look at all the mysteries surrounding Obama’s place of birth there is obviously a lot of things amiss. Yet the left tries acting like you’d have to be crazy to even question it.

If the shoes were swapped with McCain, McCain would have been destroyed and run out of town because of the suspicious nature of the facts. Because it was a black liberal, the media totally ignores things that should bring doubt and concern to everyone.

I give Trump an A+ for having the gonads to face a radioctive subject head on. I’m sure there are a lot of conservative politicians who have the same doubts but won’t touch it with a ten foot pole….maybe even Romney. The media’s handling of the evidence has been dispicable.

Wolf!!!…the BC is 100% authentic…OK? Everything is exactly right, OK? Obama is a genuine US citizen, according to having been born in the USA.

But, His father was not a citizen, and never has been. This must be TRUE, since the BC is authentic (by general acceptance), and states his birthplace as Kenya, or at least anywhere but the US.

Consequently, BO is not a natural born citizen, and you know what that means… (or maybe not).

So, what is there to argue about now? BO is not now, and never was, eligible to run for the POTUS.

So why did the O claim for more than 15 years via his bio-statement that he was BORN IN KENYA!

kong1967
Member
kong1967

Not only that, but it was obvious it wasn’t a mistake because the bio had been updated and changed a number of times and the place of birth never changed. The birth place was written just above where changes were made, and if Kenya was an error it would have been noticed. Additionally, the website clearly states that individuals have to provide their own bios. Yeah, like I believe Obama accidentally wrote down Kenya.

THAT is a good question. There should be several good conspiracies in it. Maybe they thought that a phoney BC could shift the emphasis away from that ‘albatross’. Sort of “hide it in plain sight”?

The most aggravating thing about these interviews is that Woofie et al. act like they are completely ignorant of any logic whatsoever. The interviewee has to hand feed them every bit of basic fact and it still doesn’t connect with their pea brain.

Blitzer is sooo typical of all the others that have their brains washed daily in the kool-aid. His attempts to appear as a journalist are pathetic. He was so frantic to keep the subject alive. I’m sure his bosses told him to hammer it. msnbc doesn’t even bother pretending journalism any more. It’s just as well because they are preaching to the choir. They aren’t changing minds. Nothing said on this station is going convince anybody of anything they don’t already believe. If the founding fathers only knew what “Freedom of the Press” would morph into. These traitors should be so ashamed. I don’t know how they go home and face their families after their day at “work”.

I honestly do not understand why any Conservative would want to be interviewed by CNN. Wolf and others use the same tactics over and over again. Would it not be great if all of the Conservatives would just not do interviews with CNN for let’s say the rest of the year. I think that would perhaps get CNN to take a closer look at themselves. But I will give this to Mr Trump…he sure laid into Wolf. It was obvious Wolf was indeed upset.

Isn’t that dainty. The state of Hawaii puts out a bogus birth certificate and the the only obligation that our media watchdogs have to investigate it’s authenticity is railroad anyone who questions it, even going so far as to produce a meaningless birth announcement in the newspaper as proof.

Ol’ Woofie tried to make Trump agree with his lies by repetition and humiliation but the Donald would have nothing to do with it.

Or, he could have just said, “Yes, I believe it was a fake. I believe that he had some two-bit hack throw a poorly designed PDF together at the last minute and he paid a lot of campaign money to Hawaii to get the Governor to ‘certify’ it. He is an illegitimate president in addition to a complete failure as a leader, commander, and president. About the only thing he is good at is ruining our country. Which brings me back to my point…”

I was skipping channels and hit this as it was happening

Trump wanted to discuss jobs and was clearly sucked into the “birther” debate

Wolf is a bozo and is clearly rooting for Obama –

That being said Trump fell for it hook line and sinker –

I doubt Trump will be back on Wolfies show anytime soon

Wolfie didn’t even care when Trump insulted him — AND

Wolfie is wrong – the Gov of Hula Hula is a Republican – BOZO
(this shows that facts mean nothing to these dolts)

I hopeTrump never returns to this “show” so the ratings sink even lower

Trump has a long sh*t list – two new additions – George Willie and Wolfie

But then again all this is obvious to us on this board

CNN is gurgling at their ratings >>>>

The Don is crazy to say Obama may not have been born in America even after he released both long and short versions of his birth certificate. Even IF there were real possibility of Obama being Kenyan-born, why mention it? It’s not like it’s a campaign issue. Donald Trump is distracting the nation from the reality that the economy sucks because of Obama’s failed policies. Obama couldn’t have dreamed of a better strategy then to have self-proclaimed anti-Obama pundits distracting from the economy.

I agree this isn’t the rabbit trail to be running down at this time, neither is impeachment. But there is a lot to question about the BC that was released, step by step evidence of tampering.
If was ever proved, then Nothing he signed would be a lawful document.

Screw the BC… concentrate on the “thou shall be..” requirements for POTUS. There are NO “thou shall NOT be’s…” regarding eligibility. Presumably, if there were to be any, the Founders have left it up to the voters’ discretion to decide what they might be and what to do about them, if anything. Let the BC remain ‘authentic’, with all the Judiciary officially agreeing to its validity. THEN, what excuse will there be to the ONLY accepted fact, as stated on the BC, that BO Sr was not a US Citizen at little BO’s birth, and all which that entails? So far, the Dems are still able to use the BC authenticity as a smokescreen for the ONLY truly constitutional disqualification for being POTUS, not being nbC… and the “birthers” are enabling the subterfuge to continue. At the rate things are going, the only hope of having all he has signed… Read more »

In 2008, Atty. Leo Donofrio brought a QW suit in a US District Court in California against Obama’s candidacy and had it, eventually, dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.
The Judge was, interestingly, ‘kind enough’ to describe the proper court of jurisdiction, which turns out to be the DC Court for the District of Columbia (same as the US District court, but DC is not part of the Federal system, and is ‘under the jurisdiction’ of Congress).

Congress Tried to Change Natural Born Citizen Clause Over and Over, They were trying to pave the way, because they had someone picked out “Our Congress worked diligently to change our Constitution’s Natural Born Citizen Clause and failed eight times between 2003 and 2008″…

By “own”, do you mean the BC he keeps in his safety deposit box that says his father is Davis, or Malcom X? That would be the only “one” that makes him a natural born citizen.

Maybe you mean that this Constitutional Law Professor has his own ‘special’ definition of nbC?

Surely you don’t confuse natural born (like ‘of a woman’, as opposed to ‘hatched’) with a natural born citizen?

Trump should have just refused to discuss it. He should have cut him off like Gingrich used to do and said if this is all you want to talk about, then I’m hanging up.

One only has to ask themselves what is it that just came out in the news about the economy that can hurt Obama? Why did the morning White House talking points memos decide to tell the LSM to bring up the birther issue again? Was it to distract and divert once again?

Wolf Blitzer is absolutely ridiculous and despicable. His only intention is to discredit Donald Trump and at the same time to avoid talking about the substantive issue of Obama’s failing economy. IMO, people like Blitzer is why CNN has slipped to the bottom of Cable News. When are they going to wise up and start being concerned about telling the truth or at least searching for the truth. As it is, they are just another Obama mouthpiece. Thankfully, we have other options when it comes to political opinion.

My kids births were put in the paper and I didn’t put in. Newspapers report on birth registrations/certificates to fill space in the paper.

I actually think that same Grandmother is the one that got Obama his Social Security number. The man that had it before Obama did pass away in Hawaii and never used or applied for Social Security benefits. That has been documented by Private Detectives that looked into it back in 2008 0r 2009. It was a clean Social Security Number. If the State of Hawaii would show the original Certificate of Live Birth all of this would go away. Evidently they cannot because it simply does not exist. There are just to many unanswered questions concerning his Birth and his Social Security number. Obama fought it to hard in the courts when it first came up. That in itself tells you something is just not Kosher.

The weird thing that catches my attention is that Obama was born a week before his mom left for college in WA state. That seems like strange planning. The baby could have been late or had various problems. I’m sure U of WA did not have walk in registration.

I’m guessing if BHO was born in Hawaii, his parents aren’t SAD & BO Sr. They could be grandma(she was 37) and/or Frank Davis. BHO will not allow birthers to do DNA testing. Why else would these two “raise” BHO? Why was BHO brought back to Hawaii and his sister raised in Indonesia? The whole thing could have been an innocent hoax perpetrated to disguise grandma having a black baby while being a respected bank VP. BHO himself might have not learned of it till much later.
