"Donald Trump finally concedes that Obama was born in the U.S."

"President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again," he said, then walked offstage after a 30-minute event consisting mostly of praise for him from veterans and Medal of Honor recipients."

I don't think the press is just going to leave it alone. Even though it takes a logical stretch to connect the birther allegation to therefore it means Trump is a racist. It's a stretch, but they are going to try. Like the song says, they are in too deep.
If the media persist attacking him on this issue, after Trump's acknowledgment, that, yes Obama was born in the United States, it may do more damage to them, if that is even possible.

Trump played the media like a violin, making them sit for a half hour as distinguished military men endorsed him (drove them nuts BTW) and then flipped the whole thing back onto Frumpty, who really started the birther thing.

BTW If you look at the birth cert, it lists BHO Sr's race as "African". In '61, race would have been "Negro" or "Colored".


PS If this is all the media has left, then Scott Adams is right, The Donald really is running unopposed.

I never cease to be amazed by the biased press.

Drudge had a link to all the twitter-y quotes from the disappointed hacks.

Eli Stokols stands out.

Yes, Hawaii, which is Asian, according to Obama.

* Atlantic southern seaboard cities are given examples of ports that need to be deepened to handle larger ships like the Panama Canal.

* Austrians speak Austrian.

* Falklands are Maldives

* Saudi Arabia has an extensive border with Syria

* Obama utterly fails basic U.S. geography that children know, so what does it matter to him? Visited all 57 states with 1 left to go.

This is a matter of interest only to DOPES in the media. Whose entire journalistic experience comes from campaigning. So says Ben Rhodes, himself inexperienced, who played them all like a one-man washboard band.

Same as Trump's taxes. Suddenly of supreme importance even though as Republican candidate he's been audited up the wazoo, and while completely unconcerned about the 6 billion (with a gigantic B) that Hillary Rodham Clinton lost as secretary of state.

So unless Trump owes anywhere near 6 billion dollars then his taxes are of no interest to his supporters.

The same goes for his health records, suddenly of supreme importance to media.

And the thing is, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE sees right through this bullshit. They're bashing their own heads right before our amazed eyeballs. It's beyond pathetic. American media is actually grotesque.

Trump is playing to dopes and it sounds like vaudeville piano. My favorite part is "Illary Fallsalot started this horseshit, you well know."

[Someday I'll tell you about the time I came home and cheerfully announced to my mum in kitchen, "We just had a horse turd fight."

Oh. I guess I just did.

She didn't react as expected. I was made to take a bath immediately and never do that again. My 1st grade girlfriend across the street owned a horse and we crossed the pasture to get to the creek where our treehouse was located.]

Trump did well today. He can turn around and point out how Hillary started the whole birther rumors when she was running against Obama. She will deny it (as will her lefty pals) but the truth is her campaign started the dirty whisper campaign. He probably knew about it and certainly did little to stop it. Combine that with Colin Powell acknowledging in his hacked emails that Hillary still hates Obama for beating her in 2008.

April, what is next is Hillary's campaign stealing from donors under $100. Now I doubt Hillary or the Campaign authorized it, it is so counter productive to do that--you probably lose at least 3 votes for every voter you cheat (potentially far more). But if this story has legs (which it appears to have) it shows Hillary was so incompetent she let scammers and hackers access to her donor list.

And it plays into the whole private server issue, her security clearances, her lying, her corruption and everything else.

Remember when Trump brought up Ted Cruz Canadian birth?

How is questioning someone's place of birth racist?

If doing so is racist. Then it means we setting aside (for a different treatment) a group of people precisely on racial grounds.

In other words, not treating Obama the same as Ted Cruz is what is racist in my book.

Here is Michelle Obama saying Obama's home country was Kenya...

Hard to contradict her, since that would be racist, if you do... I guess.

"Jake Tapper calls it a “political rickroll.”

Exactly. Is Trump a genius, or are you "journalists" idiots? Which one is it, suckers.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Isn't it just a bit late to be worrying about whether Obama was born in Kenya or shit on a rock in Hawaii? He has been President now for almost this full two terms.

To repeat a phrase coined by Hillary.......What difference, at this point, does it make?

Of course Obama was born in the US. Doesn't mean he isn't a muslim, which he is and a Taqiyya muslim at that.
