Trump Goes Full-On Loony
Last week, Donald Trump tested the waters by saying he had “a little doubt, just a little” about President Obama’s citizenship.
Well, he must have gotten the response he was looking for, because today he’s going all-out into raving Birtherism.
“I am really concerned,” Trump said during an appearance on Fox News. “You have no doctors, you have no nurses … that remember.” …
Trump … brushed off past statements from current Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie that he remembers Obama being born.
“I doubt it,” Trump said of Abercrombie’s contentions. “I think this guy should be investigated. He remembers when Obama was born? Give me a break. He’s just trying to do something for his party.”
In 2008, the Obama campaign produced a certification of live birth that reports his birthplace as Honolulu, Hawaii. He attended kindergarten there before moving to Jakarta, Indonesia with his stepfather at age six. Trump, like others who question the president’s birth place, is not satisfied with the certification of live birth.
“They give you a certificate of live birth, which anybody can get. Just walk into the hospital and you get a certificate of live birth,” he said. “It’s not even signed by people.”
Among other evidence Obama was born in Hawaii is the fact the hospital where he was born took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth. But Trump isn’t buying that either:
“That was placed in the paper days after he was born. He could have come into the country and then did it for social reasons – for whatever reasons.”
Trump is also outraged that people call idiots like him “Birthers.”
And one more thing that irks Trump - using “birthers” to describe those who continue to press this issue. “I don’t like the term birthers,” he said. “I think it’s unfair to them.”
OK, then let’s use a more accurate term: addle-brained racist morons. That better?
