Tweet of the day: Trump's birthplace?

(CNN) - National Journal's Reid Wilson pokes fun at Donald Trump, whose recent appearances with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney came under the shadow of the real estate mogul's "birther" comments.

"Happy birthday to Donald Trump, born 66 years ago today in Kenya or Indonesia or wherever," he tweets.

Watch CNN's Wolf Blitzer grill Trump on his continued emphasis on questioning President Obama's birthplace.

    I am not obliged to know where you were born Trump, but I am obliged as you have been to know any Presidential candidate to be, whether they have birth certificate or not. Have you asked your buddy Romney his birth certificate, if not why was it important to harass Pres. Obama on this?

    Trump's birth certificate says that he was born in Jamaica.

    I really don't care where either THE Donald or Willard were born. I just want to see their Tax Returns that were supposed to be filed by April 16th this year. Also, the "Certificate of Birth" that Trump released was the type of document that does not meet any requirements for getting a passport, a driver's license, or joining the military.

    @Gimmeabreak! You're way too tightly wound if this joke enrages you. It's a parody of Trump's incessant birther crap and while it may not be laugh out loud hilarious, it's at least somewhat amusing. But even if it was a horrendous joke it's still nothing to get that worked up over. Relax.

    This is funny, Donald Trump's stupidity coming back to hit him right at home; 1 out of 4 of Donalds wives aren't American born, only one and he traded her in for a none American wife.

    Trump was hatched, so I doubt there is any certifcate of live birth for him.

    Trump isn't running for anything! So he is not required to meet the requirements of being President of the U.S.
    Anymore, maybe no one is!

    (I don't believe in the "birther" nonsense either, but....I ran for school board and was required to fullfill all requirements before they would put me on the ballot.)

    Same is true running for POTUS. The credentials of the candidates are submitted to and checked by the Presidential Election Commission, which is a group organized by the sitting POTUS. Once put in the place, the group is autonomous. This is the same group that conducts the Presidential Debates. After the election, the group reports its' findings to the Congress just as the Electoral College would, so that the Congress can officially certity the election.

    it is not funny to anyone when Trump persisitently insult the presidency of USA. It is not only personal, it said about the respectfulness of America. When Trump trash America at large, he deserves every piece of trash throwing at him. He squarely did it to himself. Hell with Trump.

    Are you kidding? I'm howling; it's darned funny. The writer is obviously spoofing on Trump the Chump's ridiculous claim that that Pres. Obama was born in Kenya. Trump deserves whatever sarcastic spoof he gets. He's a stupid clown!
