"Birthers again"

In case you missed it, Donald Trump has just proved to the world that he is a blithering idiot! Actually I would have thought better of the boy. You would think that anybody with that much money would have a little smarts. Alas, such is not the case.

Trump has taken to heart the old, dreary, long-disproved and discredited theory that President Obama was born in Kenya (or someplace not in the US) His argument? President Obama does not have a Birth Certificate. Instead he has a Certificate of Live Birth. To Trump, that document is illegal, immoral, unethical, sinful and possibly contagious. To Trump, this is proof that it was all part of a vast conspiracy.

I would expect such stupidity from some illiterate red-neck who only believes what his preacher tells him.

My daughter was born in the Naval Hospital at Naval Air Station Memphis. She was issued a Certificate of Live Birth. This is the practice in many states. Long ago the courts determined that this is just as legal as a Birth Certificate. I would love to see Trump tell her she is somehow illegal, and not a US citizen. She would eat him alive!

I guess if you want to run for president, and think you must corral all the dingbat votes, then you can justify, to yourself, why it is necessary to be totally stupid. We can give Trump that much credit. I wonder how much money he is willing to spend to prove again that he is a total nit wit, and unfit to run anything more demanding than an automatic elevator.
