Donald Trump: I’m Proud To Be A Birther, And Obama May Be A Muslim

Donald Trump continued his bizarre obsession with the President’s birth certificate today in an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie:

And, oh yea, last night he suggested to Bill O”Reilly that the reason the President is hiding his birth certificate may be because it says he’s a Muslim.

As Ezra Klein tweeted earlier today:

I’m really looking forward to the GOP debate featuring a “yes” or “no” on birtherism.

And they’ll have Donald Trump to thank for it. Sometimes, I think Trump is really a Democratic Trojan Horse designed to make the GOP look ridiculous.

    If he really runs, and I don’t believe he will, I’m sending Trump a donation.

  2. Jay Dubbs says:

    Count me in on the Trump donation. It’s every Democrat’s party duty!

    Here’s the line they’ll use:

    “I take the President at his word that he….

    … was born in this country,…
    … is a Christian,…
    … is not a Muslim,…

    but other people are free to believe what they wish.”

    Even Bill O seems reasonable amongst these wackos.

    The question remains: is this a reality show publicity stunt, or is The Donald completely nuts?

    Doug,

    “Sometimes, I think Trump is really a Democratic Trojan Horse designed to make the GOP look ridiculous.”

    Not that the R’s need any help there. So tell me again why no Democrat could possibly be acceptable to you, but most Republicans are.

  6. Murray says:

    I have a conspiracy theory to share:

    The Donald is working for the Obama reelection campaign pushing the GOP field further in Nutcasistan in exchange for …. tax breaks?

  7. Murray says:

    Caramba! Beaten by Moosebreath by 1 mimute.

    Reminds me of Salvador Dali on Picasso:

    “Picasso is a Spaniard, and so am I. Picasso is a great artist, and so am I. Picasso is communist, nor am I.”

    I’m not sure the Democrats would ever be smart enough to figure out how to do that. Besides, the GOP does a pretty good job of making themselves look ridiculous on their own.

    Do you think that Fox News is part of this secret campaign as well? Because they’re pushing it as hard as Trump is.

    Must be the hair.

    lol, no, its because he is like a walking talking rich corporation…..

    Personally, I think that he’s just decided he’s ready to double down on the “Sheen” effect.
