In a cleverly worded dig at the current circus sideshow birther revival, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul today called for Donald Trump to prove he has any Republican credentials whatsoever as his father Congressman Ron Paul prepares to run for the GOP nomination in 2012.
In light of the revelation that Trump has regularly contributed to the campaigns of leading Democrats such as Senate majority leader Harry Reid of Nevada, Paul raised the question, why should Republicans even consider Trump as a potential presidential candidate?
“I’ve come to New Hampshire today because I’m very concerned,” Paul told the Merrimack County Republican Committee in Concord this morning.
“I want to see the original long-form certificate of Donald Trump’s Republican registration.”
“Seriously, don’t you think we need to see that?” Paul said as laughter and applause broke out throughout the room.
