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.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
