Trump: Hey, How About a Little Credit for Finding Bin Laden?

The Donald must be trying to generate a much needed “bin Laden bump” in the polls.

From CNN:

During his second trip to the early presidential contest state of New Hampshire, the famously confident Trump said he appeared on television “a few weeks ago” saying bin Laden was in Pakistan but that “nobody else picked it up.”

“You tell them (Pakistan) we’re not giving you any money unless you hand over to us Osama bin Laden and everybody looked at me like eh, nobody else picked it up,” Trump told a crowd at the Chamber of Commerce Nashua Expo. “That’s what I hate about politics. You know when I buy a piece of real estate I own it, OK? When you come up with a good idea in politics, if they like it they take it and they say I have an idea and you know, by that time most people forgot it was Trump’s idea so Trump doesn’t get any credit. I love to get credit.”

To help sway any disbelievers, Trump released this photograph that was purportedly snapped outside Osama bin Laden’s compound the night he was killed. The picture was taken right before Trump jumped out of the copter, stormed the compound and personally said to bin Laden, “Osama, you’re fired!”
