He fits right in

Stop me if you've heard this before (don't actually). Trump:
...he doubts the two 1961 newspaper clippings announcing the birth of Obama, because he's "seen fraud" before...

In fact, he dispenses fraud with hilarious avidity:
Donald Trump made headlines earlier today when he provided what he said was a copy of his birth certificate -- but a quick check reveals it's actually not

It is actually that ceremonial certificate hospitals give out (or used to) for as a memento for you giving them lots of cash.

So, the latest birther (why not join 51% of the GOP base?) does not even know what a birth certificate is. Neither unsurprisingly does the group that accepted it as legit...Newsmax, the right-wing performance artists who drive the birther train.

Just another reason that the guy with the world's most ridiculous comb-over and who lives by the myth he's a self-made man (who just happened to inherit hundreds of millions from daddy) shouldn't push fraud allegations.

Like his argument that he's a smart guy who did great at the best colleges, I get the feeling that his "birth certificate" indicates that Dad had to pay handsomely just to get him out of the hospital.

I once knew someone whose father was a high muckety-muck in the investment world, and that guy's baccalaureate cost Pops a lot more than tuition and room and board. About two million bucks more.

If the Donald were ever to become president, there would be hell toupee.

Not that a hairpiece is a fraud. Not at all. The more expensive ones are generally, well, rather sincere.
