Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t an official birth certificate. He caught flack for that, but quickly straightened out the matter and retrieved the authentic thing, something Obama – the most powerful man in the world – seems incapable of doing.
There are many on both the Right and the Left that cringe at Trump’s new-found enthusiasm, though for different reasons. Those on the Left fear the truth. Those on the Right fear the Left’s mockery for standing up for the truth.
The Blaze quotes Trump staffers:
That’s a lot different than a hospital certificate of live birth, and Trump’s camp acknowledged as much in a memo to ABC:
“A ‘birth certificate’ and a ‘certificate of live birth’ are in no way the same thing, even though in some cases they use some of the same words,” wrote Trump staffer Thuy Colayco in a message to ABC News.
“One officially confirms and records a newborn child’s identity and details of his or her birth, while the other only confirms that someone reported the birth of a child. Also, a ‘certificate of live birth’ is very easy to get because the standards are much lower, while a ‘birth certificate’ is only gotten through a long and detailed process wherein identity must be proved beyond any doubt.
If you had only a certificate of live birth, you would not be able to get a proper passport from the Post Office or a driver’s license from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, there is very significant difference between a ‘certificate of live birth’ and a ‘birth certificate’ and one should never be confused with the other.”
The fun continues….!
