Palin Lauds Trump’s ‘Birther’ Investigation: ‘More Power to Him’


palinThe former Alaska governor applauded Donald Trump for opening a private probe into President Obama’s birth certificate.¬†Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Shabbos applauded billionaire businessman Donald Trump for opening a private investigation into President Obama’s birth certificate.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said she believes the president was born in Hawaii, but claimed there is something on his birth certificate he is trying to hide.

“More power to him. He’s not just throwing stones, you know – from the sidelines. He’s digging in there. He’s paying for researchers to know why President Obama would have spent $2 million to not show his birth certificate. So more power to him,” she said during an interview on Fox News.

Trump – who is also considering a presidential bid – has embraced so-called “birtherism,” or a belief in theories that Obama is not constitutionally permitted to serve as president because he was born outside the United States.

Other likely GOP candidates have rejected Trump’s recent “birther” kick: Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty recently said Republicans should not “play into” birther theories.

But Palin said “The Donald” is simply trying to dig for more information.

“Well, you know, I think he was born in Hawaii because there was the birth announcement put in the newspaper. But obviously, if there’s something there that the president doesn’t want people to see on that birth certificate,” she said. “Then he seems to go to great lengths to make sure it isn’t shown, and that’s kind of perplexing for a lot of people.”

Questions over Obama’s birthplace have persisted since his 2008 campaign, during which he released a certificate proving he was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961. But some “birthers” believe that the copy released by the campaign withheld certain information.

Trump told NBC last week that, “I have people that have been studying it and they cannot believe what they’re finding.”

  1. Considering that the media spent a lot more to find out a lot less about her . She has every right to back Trump`s investigation. Maybe she will finally get the revenge that she deserves.

  2. Bravo Mrs. Palin. Thank you for standing up for the truth against the lame brained media stream that’s always lying about you and other people like Donald Trump. You are an American hero. When it comes out that the Obamanation was born in Canada because his hippie mother and commie father wanted to avoid the draft I iwll be happy to call you madam Vice President (or better President if McCain decides he’s too old to serve and I hear his certificates’ a little fishy too.) Can we get a Palin/West 2012 ticket? That would be the best

  3. This Obama birth certificate conspiracy will eclipse the Kennedy/Oswald conspiracy big time.
