before not asking him about things like
the border fence or mass deportations.
The President's birthplace was never in doubt by anyone except him and tin-foil hat-wearing conspiracy enthusiasts. So all he's doing is reversing his position on some crazy bullshit he made up years ago. What does he want, a cookie? Because he can't goddamn have one.
|"No cookie for stating obvious!"|
-Cookie Monster, weighing in
|Sure, noted diet pill spokesman Dr. Oz says |
Trump's of sound body, but what about mind?
Shouldn't we hear from a fake shrink too?
"Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. You know what I mean..."
-Donald Trump on how we must all be idiots
Um no, we don't know what he means. He should probably elaborate on that wild accusation.
|Oh, right, because half of us make|
astoundingly bad life decisions.
Let me get this straight, he's saying that Hillary Clinton made up his birther conspiracy? Why did he then promulgate it for like four years? In fact, he didn't just repeat it, he became like King of the Birthers. So did Hillary Clinton use like a Jedi mind trick or brain wash him or something? Did he only now manage to shake off her programing like some kind of orange Manchurian Candidate? This just raises more questions than it answers. Like, how is this race even close?
I don't think for a minute that Donald Trump ever truly believed that President Obama was born in Kenya, or at least I don't think he ever really cared one way or the other. What I do think is that he rode the birther thing like Muad'Dib on the sandworm because it earned him the racist idiot vote, which if polls in Ohio and Florida are any indication is like, his key demo. But since they're going to vote for him no matter what he says, might as well take advantage of all the free media attention, right?

I think this might be a more apt analogy.
