Donald Trump is still not convinced that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.
Things got quite testy at times, as proven by this snippy exchange:
Trump: “Am I allowed to talk, if you could stop defending Obama?”
Blitzer: “Donald, Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you.”
Trump: “No, I think you are, Wolf. Let me tell you something. I think you sound ridiculous.”
The interview was touchy from the get-go as Trump immediately blasted the intro piece that CNN aired about him, saying it sounded like it was “written by President Obama.”
Things got even more bizarre when they delved into the “birther” issue once again.
“Obama does not like the issue of where he was born,” Trump said. “He does not like that issue because it’s hitting very close to home. You know it, and he knows it.”
He claimed Obama’s campaign was using “reverse psychology” to make the media think that birtherism was bad for Republicans.
When Wolf Blitzer pointed out that, partly thanks to Trump himself, Obama released his long-form birth certificate last year, Trump responded, “A lot of people don’t agree with this birth certificate, a lot of people don’t think it’s authentic.”
He went on to cite the blockbuster revelation from Breitbart.com last week indicating that Obama’s own publisher referred to him as “Kenyan-born,” as did the Associated Press.
Donald Trump makes a lot of sound points during the interview, it’s too bad he comes off looking like a bit of a loose cannon…but that’s exactly how the mainstream media wanted it to look.
