Just in case you were wondering exactly when President Donald Trump would resume his bizarre obsession with the birther conspiracy theory he started over former President Obama’s birth certificate, it seems he still questions it quite a bit.
The New York Times reported that our 71-year-old man-baby president is still uncertain of former President Barack Obama’s birthplace, despite the fact that the right-wing birther bullsh*t has been debunked a million times over. It seems an unnamed senator told the Times that Trump couldn’t seem to move past conspiracy claims that Obama wasn’t born in the United States.
North Korea launches ballistic missiles daily, and this freak show is still focusing Infowars porn?
Trump’s so-called entry into political life came after resurrecting the birther movement, which purported that our 44th president was not born in the United States and thus ineligible for office. President Obama, perpetually the responsible teacher looking to shut up the obnoxious student, eventually released his official birth records.
Trump’s non-stop harassment of our well-respected and bigly popular president appeared to wane in 2016 when he seemed to accept Obama as being born here.
“Hillary Clinton in her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it, Trump said. President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again.”
Trump constantly vilifies Hillary, all while giving the illusion he stopped obsessing over the Black guy who’s better than him in every possible way.
That we’re learning this carnival barker is still ensnared in birther nonsense and not focused on the enormous task of being president is hardly shocking. However, it certainly makes Trump’s own Secretary of State’s comments about his boss being a “f**king moron” all the more poetic. In short, we really, really need to abandon the notion that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly or anyone else can micro-manage this deranged mean girl.
