Bush jokes, reflects at White House portrait unveiling

Washington (CNN) - There were smiles, laughter and tears - but little politics - when former Presidents George W. Bush and his father, George H. W. Bush, joined current President Barack Obama at the White House for the unveiling Thursday of the younger Bush's official portrait.

An emotional ceremony in the East Room saw the new White House residents thanking their predecessors for their service to the nation and for helping them out during the move more than three years ago.

Blitzer and Trump spar over Trump's 'birther' claims

(CNN) – Donald Trump did not back down Tuesday from his questioning of President Barack Obama's birthplace, instead arguing heatedly with CNN's Wolf Blitzer that "a lot of people do not think it was an authentic certificate," though he declined to offer names of experts who agree with him.

The issue of Obama's birth – litigated in the 2008 presidential campaign, then settled when the Obama White House released the long-form version of the certificate in April 2011 – is being brought to the fore in no small part by Trump, who is also set to fund-raise alongside presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney Tuesday evening.
