“Today, I’m very proud of myself because I’ve accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish,” Mr. Trump told reporters who gathered in an airport hangar. “I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully getting rid of this issue.”The unabashed, bone-deep stupidity exhibited by some people never ceases to amaze me. “The Donald” proves once again that ignorance is irrespective of socio-economic strata. For weeks I have watched in bewilderment at his negative assertions to this “birther” question. Did he really unearth something that the DNC, RNC, Hilliary and Bill Clinton as well as John McCain ( who were involved in a knock-down-drag-out-fight to the end with Obama) could not find?
The political camps of Gov. Mitt Romney, Gov. Mike Huckabee and any and everybody else engaged in this last presidential free-for-all, surely would have come forward with this damaging information had there been any truth to it. I thought of Snopes.com, The Smoking Gun.com, and others of their ilk. Would not these investigative sites have produced this information as well? I mean how many more ways could the person and history of then-Senator Obama–the “Community Organizer” have been solidly vetted?
Donald Trump had “his people looking into” this birther issue. Donald Trump was publicly calling out the president of The United States on the veracity of his American citizenship. I kept thinking — if this is true, that Barack Hussein Obama could dupe the whole world on the truth of his place of birth in this age of rapid knowledge and computer technology — why, it would be on a level greater than the claimed collusion and conspiracy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ! And then the question arises, how many people would need be involved in this conspiracy and what would they gain from it by doing so?
Yet, I kept giving Trump the benefit of the doubt because he is “THE DONALD” that maybe he knew something that all the world did not. And therein lies the problem. I attributed veracity to the man based on his celebrity stature that was not deserved and I should have known better. Still, Trump will not relent. Within minutes, he made statements such as, “We have to look at it and see if is it real,” and “if it is proper” and “what’s on it,” — PLEEEZE! Moreover, a NYT/CBS poll states that 45 percent of Republican voters responding believe that Mr. Obama is not a U.S citizen…unbelievable.
As I’ve stated in one of my previous blog posts, “Opinions are like an anus — everybody’s got one.” Yet just because you’ve got one, doesn’t mean you need act like one — nor open your mouth and remove all doubt that you are one. Kudos to you Mitt Romney for refusing to take part in this foolishness.
Have A Great Day!
