Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Trump Get Into It on ‘The View’ After Trump Demands to See Obama’s Birth Certificate

March 23, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Sparks flew on “The View” Wednesday after Donald Trump, who has been talking about running for president, insisted that President Obama make his birth certificate public, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Trump was on the morning talk show to promote “Celebrity Apprentice,” but made a bigger impression talking politics. “If I got the nomination … I definitely think I could beat Obama,” Trump said.

He then said of Obama, “Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate. … There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.”

Goldberg responded with, “Donald, I think that’s the biggest pile of dog mess I’ve heard in ages! It’s not because he’s black, is it?”

“It has nothing to do with him being black,” Trump responded.

Goldberg: “Because I’ve never heard a white president being asked to show his birth certificate. That’s BS.”

  1. Leave it to Whoopi to turn it into a racial statement.
    If Ahnold were to run for President, I think people would want to see his birth certificate as well, though of course we already know he isn’t eligible.
    The fact still remains that no matter what you think about this decided non-issue, all this could be resolved once and for all by releasing his birth certificate, which Mr. Obama simply refuses to do for whatever reason.

  2. Donald Trump, a real estate developer demands proof that the leader of the free world is an American.
    Donald Trump, a real estate developer wants the job.
    Maybe the real estate guy should lower his expectations.
    Perhaps Ms. Goldberg was simply annoyed at Mr. Trump’s ridiculous and moronic request. Good for her.

  3. What bothers me even more is that the media are wasting everyone’s time by giving Trump opportunity to tout his Presidential ambition. What a package: a long list of bankruptcies, divorces, living off the largess of banks, failed businesses. And that’s given credence?
    Please!

    Like Donald Trump, clearly, you’re ignorant on this issue. In order for Mr. Obama to run for office, he needs to produce a birth certificate. He’s done this. Copies of his birth certificate are available online. Going forward, Get your facts straight before you show the world just how out of touch you are.

  6. You show your ignorance. While it is required that the president be a natural born citizen of the United States, there is no requirement that a candidate show his birth certificate and Obama has not produced his actual certificate. In fact he has spent millions fighting the calls for him to produce it. The governor of Hawaii (a democrat who supports Obama) stated that he would end the controversy and release the certificate…. of course, he did not. That’s because it does not exist. Obama was not born there. There is far more evidence for his being born in Africa than there is for his being born in Hawaii. He could end this controversy immediately by producing that Hawaiian certificate… but he has not and refuses to. Why? hmmm

  7. There is no requirement for the president to produce a birth certificate and he has not. There is a proposed bill in Congress currently to require a birth certificate for the president and vice president. As for what he has produced….
    From the article — “President Obama has so far refused to produce any further documentation.”–
    The Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth (COLB) foisted upon a confused American public by Mr. Obama neither identifies nor bears a signature of the attending doctor and it does not even name the birth hospital. That internet image has already been changed 4 times and it does not give the date ‘Accepted’ as it should, but only the date ‘Filed’. Recent, specialized computer analysis of the ‘original’ COLB displayed on DailyKOS shows that there is no indication of a Serial Number present on the layer beneath the black ‘redact panel’, indicating forgery of the document.
    Barack Obama was born August 4, 1961 at the Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. A high resolution copy of his Kenyan birth certificate is available for free download at WasObamaBornInKenya.com

  8. All of you liberals get over it. Obama is the worst President weve ever had. Damn, I would rather have Clinton any day over this ya hoo. What just because he is black I have to like him. Save it for someone who give a damn! IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!

  9. The dumbest part of all this is that Obama should have provided it before he even was permitted to run! I wish Trump would have said no Whoopie its not because he’s Black, but because he might be lying and not deserve the hold the position he has. Should we allow him special treatment to not prove citizenship? Why? Because he’s black?
    The biggest racists on the planet are the ones hiding behind that phrase!

  10. Regardless of where he was born, one of his parents is American, making him an American.
