Trump World Grab-Bag--A Collection

One of the 2012 GOP Requirements is Addressing Birtherism

Addressing birtherism--just not rejecting it. I noticed  the famous reality television star, Donald Trump, opining on the subject of President Obama's nativity, thusly:

"You may go back and interview people from my kindergarten," he said. "They'll remember me. Nobody comes forward. Nobody knows who he is until later in his life. It's very strange. The whole thing is very strange."

According to his biography, Obama attended Noelani Elementary School in Honolulu for kindergarten, then moved to Indonesia where he attended St. Francis Assisi Catholic School for three years.
But this is really just amatuer-night at the old dog-whistle.  The Donald has never been a participant in the reindeer games of electoral politics--so what does a polished politician, like, oh, say, Michele Bachmann, have to say?

Well I'll have you know, she is 110% going to release her birth certificate like a hive of angry bees on you. But is this really necessary?  She's already displayed being bad at geography and American history. How much more proof of being American does she need?  (Sorry, cheap joke.)

Ah, Michelle and the Donald--so very full of shit. But apparently, an intention to run for president on the GOP side seems to come with some need to joke about, pander to, or even baldly wallow in birtherism. It's very strange.
