Birthers Are Suckers

After watching the Donald's most recent display of wingnuttery, Jonathan Capehart has grown weary of Trump's birtherism:

“If you go back to my first grade, my kindergarten, people remember me,” Trump declared.

Of course people remember him. Everyone always remembers the obnoxious, know-it-all kid loudly hungering for, demanding and getting attention.

But then Trump made this declaration: "If you're going to be president of the United States, it says very profoundly you have to be born in this country."

If you still believe that President Obama was not born in the United States then you have proven Barnum and Trump right.
Indeed.
