Trump Demands Proof Obama Is Not Superman

NEW HAMPSHIRE - Billionaire mogul and Reality TV star Donald Trump has made waves in recent months, issuing demands for President Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate. Trump, a potential candidate for President in 2012, issued these demands, saying that President Obama must directly answer charges that he is not truly an American Citizen and thus ineligible to serve as President of the United States.

Earlier today at a White House news briefing, President Obama did just that, in a move that was described by White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer as "a bold move that will settle this non-issue once and for all" as well as "any charges that President Obama does not have the best interests of America at heart."

Also earlier today, DC Comics - publisher of periodicals featuring such popular characters and Batman - released the 900th issue of the popular Action Comics title. This comic book featured a story in which Superman - long held up as the defender of Truth, Justice and The American Way, renounced his American citizenship in the face of charges that he wasn't representing the interests of America properly.

Barack Obama, himself a long-time comic fan, was heralded by many as a Superman come to save an endangered America when elected to The Presidency in 2008. Many would hold that these two events occurring on the same day, within hours of one another is an amusing and coincidence and nothing more.

Donald Trump says otherwise.

"The American Comic Book industry has been a well known hide away for liberals, Communists and other anti-American thinkers for many years," Trump asserted in a prepared statement from his corporate jet in New Hampshire. "For years, they have tried to corrupt American children with tales full of half-truths and misleading allegories. And yet, they occasionally will let the truth slip out, as they did in one comic which proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is a real Superman and that it is Barack Obama!"

Trump went on to demand that President Obama prove that not only was he not born on the distant planet Krypton but that he also submit to a test to prove that he is faster than a speeding bullet, before being escorted away into a waiting ambulance.

UPDATE: Sarah Palin is expected to call a press conference later this afternoon, to demand answers as to why President Obama did not spin the earth backwards in order to stop the 9-11 attacks. We will report more on this story as events warrant.
