(Newser) – After President Obama released his long-form birth certificate yesterday, the media went ballistic over the "bombshell." But, noted Jon Stewart last night, "Wouldn't the bombshell have been him not being from America? Isn't this more of a non-shell?" Stewart was particularly interested in Donald Trump's reaction: "Trump's made Obama's citizenship the tentpole of his presidential ambition; I imagine he's eating gold-dipped crow on this one," Stewart smirked.

Or not: Trump is, of course, proud of himself. But, Stewart pointed out, "That is the hardest I've ever seen Trump be on himself. I mean, if you look at the general range of his critical self-assessment meter, that is way below his average ranking, 'I saw my face in a piece of toast.'"

What's going ballistic is the Photoshop community... over one of the worst fraudulent documents ever passed off as genuine. Just type ( photoshop and "birth certificate") in Youtube and watch the fun.

I think the candidates on Celebrity Apprentice should all leave the show, to show that Trump person that they are outraged at his disrespect for the President of the United States!That will also help him to announce his presidential candidacy!

Wow, Trump thinks this was his big really really really important accomplishment? I don't fire people on TV and I didn't even bankrupt a casino so maybe I don't know what I am talking about, but I don't think I would admit this as being the peak of my accomplishments, nor would I put it on my list of qualifications to be the president of the United States.
