Donald Trump Is Pretending To Be a Birther Now

Donald Trump is still a couple of months from his self-imposed deadline — during sweeps week — on making a presidential candidacy decision. So let's keep humoring him! Today, he pretended to be a birther.

He just completely makes up this reason not to believe Barack Obama is from the United States:

"Let me tell you, I'm a really smart guy. I was a really good student at the best school in the country. The reason I have a little doubt, just a little, is because he grew up and nobody knew him," Trump said in the interview that aired Thursday.

"If I got the nomination, if I decide to run, you may go back and interview people from my kindergarten. They'll remember me. Nobody comes forward. Nobody knows who he is until later in his life. It's very strange," the Celebrity Apprentice host added. "The whole thing is very strange."

They interview people from Obama's kindergarten all the time. Here's his teacher. Here's a classmate. Where are Donald Trump's kindergarten or elementary school classmates, hmm? He says they'll remember him. If you were one of them, email tips@gawker.com! We want to hear about the fat-headed kid who ate all of teacher's paste.
