President Obama released his official Hawaii birth certificate, the very one reporter after reporter has seen in the official state records, and revealed Donald Trump to be the man with no clothes. Finally we can all see this issue laid bare, the Birthers for the crazies they are and lay it all to rest.
Of course the hard core conspiracy believers will never be satisfied. Some folks don’t believe in evolution either, or that the earth is round. They can never be swayed by facts because they’re lunatics.
I was surprised by the White House action. They say enough was enough that the country has actual issues with which to deal but this was a huge political advantage for the President. No sane, intelligent or rational person (Including The Donald) believed this nonsense and the more the Republican field embraced this the more they looked like clowns. That advantage went to Obama and could have been played for another year before playing the trump card. Timing is everything in politics and Obama didn’t time this well. It was a well played hand but could have been used for checkmate. (to mix a metaphor)
Trump couldn’t even get his facts straight about the polls. He claimed a CNN poll shows him even with Obama. That poll (not even a CNN poll) was from February and recent polls show him getting thrashed. The difference? The general public thinks Birthers are crazy loons and won’t take them seriously. Bad move The Donald, you’re fired.
