Turns out Donald Trump can’t use his infamous “You’re fired” tagline on President Obama.
“Obama’s long form birth certificate released so that America can move on to real issues that matter to our future,” tweeted @whitehouse on Tuesday morning with a link.
But the twitterverse wasn’t ready to move on, even after the “Apprentice” host and potential Republican presidential candidate got the document that he had been asking for proof of Obama’s citizenship. “This is the worst episode of Celebrity Apprentice ever,” one twitterer complained. Another lamented, “If only baby Obama had had an iPhone 4; with its location tracking, we could easily put all this birther debate to rest.” Tweeted N.Y. Congressman @RepWeiner, “Trump now demands proof Hawaii is part of USA.”
Politics can be a hairy issue, and today’s news was no exception. “At this point I think it’s only fair that Trump give us some proof that his hair is real,” proposed ESPN host Trey Wingo. Tweeted others, “Now that the ‘Birthers’ have been silenced, the ‘Combers’ are out to get the truth about Donald Trump’s hair,” and, “I need to see the birth certificate for that hair of yours ‘cause you can’t tell me that thing was born in this country!’”
Obama got his share of teasing, too. One Republican blogger pointed out, “President Obama this morning: We’ve got better stuff to do.’ Then he boarded a plane for Chicago and Oprah taping. No joke.’” “So stoked,” tweeted someone else. “Just got the new Obama Birth Certificate 7’’ White House GOP tour edition.” Added another, “Turns out he actually was born. Who’da thunk it.”
