    No such thing as "scandal free" president.

    We all have birth certificates and can easily show where we were born-for Obama getting a birth certificate was as difficult as climbing K2.

    And then the zero hedge take on this story as well.

    There is no fake news.

    NYT reported that Buzzfeeds did not follow journalistic practices and posted an unverified 35 page document prepared by a former British intelligence officer which discussed ties between the Russian government and Trump.

    CNN picked up a portion of the story but declined to include the unverified portion.

    Again, this speaks to a tendency towards false equivalence among those who adhere to the alt-right. Buzzfeed's failure to adhere to journalistic standards is not equivalent to sites like infowars and zerohedge which manufacturer lies.
    If you have something to say - then say.

It's weird.
    Not weird-just stupid. Obozo did everything he was told to do-and put in a record amount of golf while he was at it-Trump looks like he is actually intending to help the country, which is 100 times harder.

    The fact that CNN left out the details is irrelevant...they gleefully reported on an unproven story all day long in another blatant attempt to taint Trump, but this time they paid the price for their actions. Trump refused to accept a question from them at his press conference. CNN is now outraged that they were put in their place.

    Only a moron would believe anything on CNN at this point.

    His birth certificate was widely available. Crazy people (including Trump) decided to disbelieve its authenticity and wanted a super-official birth certificate, because the standard one that everyone has was not good enough. I don't blame Obama for not readily releasing it. It encouraged the crazies to advertise their craziness.

    Where are Trump's tax returns? Where is a full disclosure of all Trump's holdings and potential conflicts of interest?

    Wrong. "Fake news" is manufactured fiction masquerading as fact. There is no manufactured fiction here. There is a 35 page document detailing Trump's ties to Russia. Buzzfeeds published the entirety of it. CNN reported only the verified (proven) portion of it.

    Trump has made his potential conflicts of interest available to the proper people. I guess you're not one of them
