Donald Trump recently announced that he is running to become the next President.
This is the same Donald Trump who refused to accept the abundant evidence that Barack Obama was born in the US, and that Obama’s Presidency was therefore legitimate according to paragraph 5 of Section 1 of Article II of the Constitution of the United states of America.
This is the same Donald Trump who insisted that President Obama publish a validated copy of his birth certificate.
This is the same Donald Trump who wasted so much of his own time and attention, and that of the public, by being the last prominent ‘birther’ to refuse to accept the abundant solid evidence about the place of Obama’s birth. This is the same Donald Trump who ensured that time and energy and newsprint and bandwidth would continue to be wasted on what was generally acknowledged to be a refuted claim.
This is the same Donald Trump who selected himself to stand in the schoolhouse door, in what everyone knew would be a futile attempt to block Obama’s path.
Is this Donald Trump eligible to be President?
Is the energy and time – his own and the public’s – that Trump expended on this silly charade, an indication of how he would allocate his attention and the nation’s resources, if he became President?
He was smart enough to know that it was a charade, wasn’t he?
If he did, then his wasting of our time and energy was so egregious that it was unpatriotic.
If he didn’t, then he is unfit to be an executive of anything.
I cannot believe that he was stupid enough to fall for the birther wishful thinking.
Therefore he had chosen self-promotion over the welfare of the country.
That is unpatriotic enough to make us wonder, was Donald Trump born in the USA?
At Trump’s every campaign appearance, demand to see his birth certificate.
Demand that he publish a certified copy.
—————————————–Trump’s Approval of Putin
Michael Gerson recently reviewed lesser known aspects of Trump’s political history.
The review contained a bombshell: Donald Trump’s approval of Putin, the most destructive tyrant of Russia since Stalin. Gerson’s column says of Trump:
The defects of democracy, in this view, are remedied by the strongman. It is not a coincidence that Trump expresses admiration for Vladimir Putin. “He’s doing a great job,” says Trump, “in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia, period.”
Putin: the person who derailed Russia’s transition to becoming a fair and open society, governed by the rule of law, instead of by the convenience of a mafia.
Putin: the mugger who robbed Crimea from Ukraine because Ukraine had overturned Putin’s protogee Viktor Yanukovych. Putin: who subsequently manufactured a surprisingly well equipped military separatist movement in eastern Ukraine that has triggered a new cold war.
Somehow Trump forgot to mention his admiration of Putin while announcing his candidacy.
After all, the voters deserve to know about each candidate’s role models.
Is someone who approves of Putin fit to be President?
At Trump’s every campaign appearance, ask him about his approval of Putin.
At every interview, ask Trump about his approval of Putin.
A birther, who wasted everyone’s time by pretending that a dead issue was still alive, solely to draw attention to himself.
An admirer of Vladimir Putin’s approach to governing.
This post can be summarized in three words: Trump Tramples Truth!
