A report published by the Washington Post Thursday reveals something disconcerting about the 2016 GOP nominee. Donald Trump, despite years of reality d*ckslapping him in the face, is still a “birther” through and through.
Robert Costa reports that Trump “remains unwilling to say that President Obama was born in the United States” even though the President has been “showing his papers” to appease the Stupid Part of America for years:
In the interview, conducted late Wednesday aboard his private plane as it idled on the tarmac here, Trump suggested he is not eager to change his pitch or his positions even as he works to reach out to minority voters, many of whom are deeply offended by his long-refuted suggestion that Obama is not a U.S. citizen. Trump refused to say whether he believes Obama was born in Hawaii.
“I’ll answer that question at the right time,” Trump said. “I just don’t want to answer it yet.”
When asked whether his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was accurate when she said recently that he now believes Obama was born in this country, Trump responded: “It’s okay. She’s allowed to speak what she thinks. I want to focus on jobs. I want to focus on other things.”
“I don’t talk about it anymore,” Trump told Costa. “The reason I don’t is because then everyone is going to be talking about it as opposed to jobs, the military, the vets, security.”
Hillary Clinton wasted no time hammering Trump for his moronic remarks. Shortly after Costa’s report was published, the Democratic nominee punched Trump below the belt so hard he’s going to need to get his testosterone levels checked again.
“Today, he did it again,” Clinton said. “He was asked one more time: Where was President Obama born? And he still wouldn’t say Hawaii. He still wouldn’t say America.”
“This man wants to be our next President?” she asked incredulously.
That Trump is still unwilling to admit that President Obama was born in the United States — a basic fact, not belief, not conjecture, fact, that only the most die-hard, racist, and inbred of Barack Obama’s haters refuse to accept — should be something that would be considered disqualifying at minimum. Unfortunately, it’s just another of the many, many, horrible and stupid things that Trump says, and the media largely ignores.
