Donald Trump lashed out at New York Times columnist Gail Collins in a letter to the paper published on Friday.
THE EMPTY PHOTO ALBUM “Our current president came out of nowhere. Came out of nowhere,” Trump told the Conservative Political Action Conference to great applause. “In fact, I’ll go a step further. The people that went to school with him, they never saw him; they don’t know who he is. It’s crazy.”
This week on CNN, Suzanne Malveaux played Trump clips of Hawaiians reminiscing about the schoolchild Obama for a documentary the network had done on the president.
“Look, I didn’t say that … If he was 3 years old or 2 years old or 1 year old and people remember him, that’s irrelevant,” Trump responded. “You have to be born in this country.”
Recent polls have shown Trump running second among potential Republican primary voters. I believe this is not so much an indication of popularity as a desperate plea to be delivered from Mitt Romney
Okay, so Gail uncovers another fable of Trump.
Donald Trump is making President Obama’s birth certificate a central part of his quixotic quest for the presidency. Trump began by dipping his toe into birther territory, but has now fully embraced the already-disproved concept that the president isn’t from here. One of Trump’s contentions is that “nobody knew him.” However, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie has asserted that he could verify that Obama was born in his state, and that, “I knew his mom and dad. I was here when he was born. Anybody who wants to ask a question honestly could have had their answer already.” Trump continued to beat the birther drum on Fox and Friends Monday morning, doubting Abercrombie and asking that the governor be investigated. And he wants to see a Certificate of Live Birth which has been available for three years. (You can click on the image to make it larger).
TRUMP: You know what I get a kick out of? The governor of Hawaii says, oh I remember when Obama was born. I doubt it! I think this guy should be investigated. He remembers when Obama was born? Give me a break! He’s just trying to do something for his party
So Trump has discovered that repubs love lies.
He witnessed rush and beckerhead and savage and bachmann and palin and…..
Who the fuck cares about truth any more? Ha
NOBODY EVER HEARD OF OBAMA IN THOSE DAYS.
Well, who knows this man when he was a kid? Nobody knew this guy as a kid. Where did he come from?
Okay, so the Governor of Hawaii comes out and says:
I knew his grandparents. Hell I knew him as a kid!
Oh but the Governor is the only one so someone should investigate him!
Then Trump sees the replay of his previous statements after the video that demonstrates all of these folks who knew Obama as children?
Oh I never said that.
You see how propaganda works.
Just as Orwell predicted.
Speak properly out of your arsehole and all will be well. Just deny everything when you are confonted with the truth.
Oh I never said that. Oh the one big guy who knew him is a liar. Oh I was not talking about little kids—I mean he was never born there. Says Trump.
Now we know how he made all that money!
Gail goes through the Grandma story (some lie long since dispensed with) and the Certificate story (where is the real certificate?)
I was going to lay off this entire piece of P.T. Barnum’s circus au lait crap but this is just too much. Too much because it underlines a message from mass media that is deplorable and will always be with us.
OBAMA HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE
So Trump comes up with an argument that maybe, just maybe, Obama is hiding the fact that his REAL birth certificate will note that he was born a Muslim.
And O’Donnell, my new MSNBC hero (male anyway) does some research and sure enough, religion was NEVER something mentioned on either hospital records or government records in Hawaii; either now or ever. Hahahahah
So Trump aint talking about the arguments he has lost anymore as far as I can tell. At least religion is gone from his propaganda.
PREVIOUS MEDIA LIES
Forget truth for a moment. I mean it is hard. But just try for a moment.
I was brainwashed over Vietnam. (Senior Romney)
We all were. I don’t care if you are talking about:
The Gulf of Tonkin
How long we were told the goddamn Vietnam War would last.
The number of enemy killed in any given day of war.
Communism as an international monolith.
Aw who cares?
Yeah Romney was brainwashed and so were we all.
THERE YA GO AGAIN
A brain damaged old man with no experience necessary to become President of the United States of America says some Alzheimeric bullshit at a debate and the mass media goes nuts.
I recall watching the debate when that fascist prick said it.
Bullshite I recall yelling at the tv.
I mean real Shakespeare going on here!
I OWN THAT MICROPHONE
Yeah, I own the microphone. Just like today. I own your job, I own your mortgage, I own your car, I own your credit cards, I own your motherfucking souls
I WAS FOR IT NOW I AM AGAINST IT
Yeah. A year after the fact, a month after O’Neill announced that Bush wanted to invade Iraq a full eight months before 9/11/01….Kerry says he was wrong.
Oh boy Kerry made a mistake. He told the goddamn truth!
These are just a few examples where the media fucked up completely.
I swear sometimes that if Reagan would have pulled out his dick and yelled:
The media would have said GENIUS.
If Carter would have quoted Shakespeare:
THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT TRY MEN’S SOULS
The media would have called it elitism or just plain irrelevant!
Fuck the media!
We can rant and rave and nothing will change, ever.
It is like a stacked deck.
Does anyone really understand what Clinton was dealing with?
Does anyone understand what Obama is dealing with right now?
People are idiots.
If you do not believe me, just look at the election results over fifty years like I have!
