Trump Still Believes in Birtherism

How much more of a racist can Trump be? Would you believe me if I told you that Trump still thinks President Barack Obama's birth certificate is fake? Of course you would because you've been paying attention for the last year:

President Donald Trump is still questioning the authenticity of former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate behind closed doors, according to a new reportfrom The New York Times. In addition to throwing doubt on the legitimacy of the infamous Access Hollywood tape, Trump has also, in recent months, reportedly revived the birtherism conspiracy theory that aided his rise to political prominence. The story cites an unnamed U.S. senator who “listened as the president revived his doubts about Mr. Obama’s birth certificate.” Trump, he said, “has had a hard time letting go of his claim that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States.” In September of last year, then-candidate Trump held a press conference to declare that “President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period,” before inventing a new lie that Hillary Clinton had “started the birther controversy” during her 2008 primary run against Obama.

You're doing a heckuva job, General Kelly.

The media should state, unequivocally, that Trump is racist every time they talk about him. When CNN talks about Trump, they should add the following caveat:

Trump, who has made numerous racist statements and is, in fact, a racist, said...

And that isn't even the half of it. What's worse than being racist? Trump is delusional. Trump is not of sound mind. Trump is so far out there, I'll bet they have to hang a bell on him so that he doesn't wander off in the middle of the night.

Whoever cursed us with this nightmare didn't know the half of it. There is no bottom. There is no floor, no end to the horror, no chance we've even heard the worst thing to come out of Trump's mouth as of yet. There's no where to go but on and on, endlessly, through the dark recesses of an addled mind so sickened and so twisted, it boggles the Goddamned mind. 

In any other era, Trump would have been removed from office without fuss or fanfare. We are so completely and utterly fucked. History will judge this man's enablers with a profoundly American fury.
