Trump Reportedly Reignites Racist Lie About Obama's Birth
He had formerly stated "President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period,” but is now ruminating with his associates that Obama's birth certificates are fake.
In the same period he has also decided to deny another of his former admissions. He previously contended that "grab 'em by the pussy" tape was just him engaging in manly locker room talk. Now he's telling people that he thinks the tape is a fake!
I would be offended, but not that concerned, if he were saying these things in public. I would assume that he didn't really believe it, but was just spouting the bullshit necessary to accommodate his base and get re-elected, which is what all politicians do. (Although his base requires rhetoric at an extremely low common denominator.) What scares me is that he's saying these things in private, indicating that he really believes them. No matter your politics, ya gotta be a little worried when the guy with the nuclear football has zero grasp of reality. I hope General Kelly (or somebody) has a grasp of this situation.
