Mitt Romney must be thrilled: On the night he is to clinch the GOP nomination, Donald Trump is stealing some of the thunder with his birther conspiracies, notes the Los Angeles Times. Just hours before Trump was to host a fundraiser in Vegas with the candidate himself, Trump went on CNN and argued with Wolf Blitzer about President Obama's citizenship.

One highlight of the exchange, in which Trump accused Blitzer and the mainstream media of protecting the president from the birther allegations:

  • Blitzer: "Donald, Donald, you're beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you."
  • Trump: "No, I think you are, Wolf. Let me tell you something. I think you sound ridiculous."
Earlier in the day, Trump pushed his view that Obama hasn't proved he is American-born on CNBC, notes Talking Points Memo. (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
