Donald Trump (Birther-N.Y.) is at it again. In double-barrelled interviews on NBCs Today Show and MSNBCs Morning Joe, Trump continued his disgusting and dangerous dabbling in the disproved conspiracy theory that President Obama was not born in the United States. This might be good for the ratings of his television show. This might even be good for his business. But it is terrible for the nation and public discourse that someone who claims to be so smart is so willing to perpetuate a lie.

Alex Koppelman snipped this strand of the conspiracy in Dec. 2008 and again in July 2009. And hell most likely have to do it again now that Trump has embraced the fallacy with both hands. This all stemmed from a interview of Sarah Obama, the second wife of the presidents grandfather, by Ron McRae, a street preacher, through a translator over the phone. As Koppelman reported in 2009, Sarah Obama is not the presidents biological grandmother, but he calls her Granny Sarah.
In a clear lost-in-translation moment (and over an international phone line), which you can listen to in full here, Mrs. Obama said she was there for her grandsons birth. When McRae asks where in Mombassa the president was born, the translator, Vitalis Akech Ogombe, repeatedly corrected him....

The Donald is looking better and better all the time.
He is doing the work that should have been done by all of the slobbering MSM pre 2008 election.
The more the MSM protest, the more attention this will get.
Dear Washington Post -
Where’s the F’n Birth Certificate???
totally completely unmitigated dog cr@p! If Obama was born in this country then he darn well better offer some proof. As he has not, indeed he cannot, then it is clear to anyone who doesn't smear animal scat on their contact lenses that HE WAS NOT BORN IN AMERICA.
Millions of people wanting the truth to come out is obviously a “conspiracy,” doncha know?
It’s only dangerous to their Dear Zero!
LOL He has the Commies Pissing themselves.
I can't get a drivers license without a birth certificate, but a Democrat with the correct skin color can become President without one?
Lighten up Jonathan or I’ll send the schoolyard bully your way to give you another wedgie.
I smell dummycrat fear.
I prefer to call him Don Trumpatino. He is going to have to call in some favors to pull this off. :)
The truth can be a disgusting dangerous dance partner I guess??
Anything that anyone dares say that is not the officially approved ProgressiveSpeak of the moment is obviously a lie, and is "terrible for the nation and public discourse".
And the Ministry of Truth must be dispatched to discredit and/or destroy such a dangerous element, as this faithful tool of the Ministry is demonstrating by doing his loyal part.
George Orwell was a prophetic genius.
Actually, latest polls put him number two with the Tea Party voters.
The lefties = nuclear....reaching critical mass
The only one in danger is Barry, and if it’s proven he’s a fraud he should be tried and convicted as a spy and promptly executed.
Wow, he sure has the commie libs all upset! heh heh.
The guy is good at alliteration anyway.
