Trump's "Birth Certificate" Not Official

The "birth certificate" Donald Trump released earlier today to show how easy it was to produce "is not an official New York City birth certificate, but rather a document generated by Jamaica Hospital, where Trump's mother Mary reportedly gave birth in June 1946," the Smoking Gun reports.

"Official birth certificates are issued (and maintained) by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's Office of Vital Records."

Ben Smith: "Trump's mother, it should be noted, was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This fact pattern -- along with the wave of new questions surrounding what he claims is a birth certificate -- raises serious questions about his eligibility to serve as President of the United States."
