Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks talks with interrupts Orly Taitz on the phone. The on screen graphic is “Orly Taitz Leader of the Birther Movement”.
Right off you get a clue he has no idea what he’s talking about. I’m just going to list his words – not Taitz’s. He thinks the entire press has seen a copy of the BIRTH CERTIFICATE, that FACTCHECK has seen a copy of the BIRTH CERTIFICATE, that there are “dozens” of officials in Hawaii saying barry’s birth certificate is legit and that there is a hospital (which he cannot name – nor anyone else) that has a birth certificate for barry. Even Dr Fukino — the one and only of those dozens of officials – has changed her words from “original birth certificate” to “original vital records”.
He is extremely rude, consistently cuts her off and talks over her, doesn’t know what state she is from, ridicules her dental and “on line” law practices, says she’s doing it because she hates obama and that there must be someone behind her aka she’s a dumb blonde.
The Young Turks
CENK UYGUR: I don’t know what he would have to do – would he have to show it to you personally?
How about showing his COLB to a third party?
BECAUSE HE’S SHOWN THE PRESS THE ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
He’s not even embarrassed in his ignorance.
They’ve all said yes it is.
How many press outlets actually saw it?
Lester Kingsolving certainly did not. Bill O’Reilly sure did not.
Factcheck.org said it’s 100% the case.
He’s got the two newspapers that said back at the time that he was born that they checked the hospital records that he was born.
There are no hospital records that have surfaced. No hospital worker who has surfaced. No Hawaii bewspaper has definitely said the name of the hospital.
Who would you believe?
You don’t believe factcheck.org. And you don’t believe those who have seen the ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
Nobody has seen the original birth certificate – if it exists – other than Dr Fukino and Alvin Onaka. Period.
Every single official that we’ve asked in Hawaii have said yes.
“We”? And there is only one official authorized to say anything – Dr Fukino.
The press has seen it. Factcheck.org has seen it.
NO ONE HAS SEEN IT. His ignorance is second only to his complete lack of manners.
Who would you trust?
Because you filed a lawsuit, that’s why. He didn’t have a choice.
He absolutely had a choice. All he had to do is produce the birth certificate. Why doesn’t he know this?
What was he going to do – concede to you?
You filed a lawsuit, of course they’re going to fight.
They cannot explain why he won’t just show it.
What motivated you?
First of all, where are you from?
Imagine if upon hearing his name she said that to him just as rudely.
Why is this issue for you?
So, you’re not a natural born citizen of the United States.
Like that has anything to do with anything. She’s not running for president. He’s just being dismissive.
He has a guest and knows nothing about the issue or the guest and prefers to ridicule. They seem not to have any idea how foolish they look.
But you think, ohmigod, I gotta figure out if Obama is a citizen?
Why stop your life for what some would call, including me, a conspiracy theory.
He pretends he has no idea what she does for a living. He knows nothing about anything and yet he is sure it is a conspiracy. It is not a conspiracy until barry’s actual physical birth place is known. It isn’t.
He actually believes that people have held barry’s original birth certificate in their hands.
What do you normally do? You’re a dentist or something? Have you stopped being a dentist to do this? You drill on people’s teeth…and people trust you? You’re still doing your dental work and on the side you’re suing the president?
So how do you finance this? Mostly? Who else is financing?
Orly you’re not making money off this, right?
How did you become the leader of the birther’s movement. You got your law degree online. Where did you get it?
So how did you become the leader – that’s what I don’t understand?
Who picked you?
Because, I gotta be honest with you, Orly. Look, I don’t believe you were just sitting at home and decided, you know, even though I’m a part-time dentist, part-time online lawyer, I’m gonna go ahead and go after the president myself and start this huge long thing. I think that someone helped you along the process – wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
He just called her a dumb blonde. And he just admitted that he thinks it’s a conspiracy.
Does he think it’s Netanyahu like the other “conspiracists”?
Okay, so you say you’re getting people excited to do this on your own.
You showed a Kenyan birth certificate for Obama that everyone has proven to be a forgery. We did a whole segment, Orly, it’s comical. You have a laundry detergent as a witness.
Did his segment include that the Bomford was a forgery in itself?
So you believe someone got you a Kenyan birth certificate that has all these problems – you believe that 100%?
But the BIRTH CERTIFICATE shown by Obama – you don’t believe at all.
So you are saying you don’t trust all the governemnt officials in Hawaii. You don’t trust Hawaii – but you trust somebody who gave you a birth certificate from Kenya?
ORLY: No hospital official stated there is a hospital birth record for Obama.
That’s not true – there are DOZENS OF THEM.
Dozens = ONE. Again a glimpse of how little he knows.
That is not true – it comes from the hospital. It’s simply not true.
It comes from the hospital. We’ve already shown you a hundred times.
Needless to say no hospital – themselves – have said barry was born there.
And here comes then inevitable:
You don’t like Obama. You think Obama is a dictator.
ORLY: Not one hospital
That’s not true.
You think Obama is a dictator, so you think, it doesn’t matter – ‘I’m gonna get something from Kenya and say I’m gonna believe that person, but I’m not gonna believe Hawaii‘.
You keep handing out these lies and of course the crazy people in this country are gonna believe, because they wanna believe the madness.
The interviewers interrupters don’t seem to realize that the way they (mis)treat her reflects a great deal on who they are. Especially when they have as little grasp on the actual facts as he.
