    In which Wolf Blitzer, of all people, schools Donald Trump on the air over his position on birtherism. An excerpt:

    WB: Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you.

    DT: You are, Wolf. Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous, and if you’d ask me a question and let me answer it.

    WB: Here’s the question, did the conspiracy start in 1961 where theHonolulu Star-Bulletin and the Advertiser contemporaneously published announcements that he was born in Hawaii?

    DT: Many people put those announcements in because they wanted to get the benefit because of getting so-called born in this country. Many people did it. It was something done by many people even though they weren’t born in the country. You know and I know it.

    Trump hosts a fundraiser for Mitt Romney tonight in Las Vegas.


    Long done with this issue, admittedly, but there’s a great laugh-out-loud moment six minutes in where Wolf asks Trump what “his people” found about Obama’s birth certificate back in April of last year — he claimed to Meredith Viera that his people “cannot believe what they’re finding” about Obama’s birth certificate. “We don’t have to go into OLD NEWS,” Trump says. “That’s old news.”
