In the leadup to the 2012 election, entrepreneur, perennial presidential flirt and reality television star Donald Trump spent a good deal of time loudly spreading the false conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya and, thus, ineligible to occupy the White House.
However, Trump seems far less interested in discussing the intricacies of 2016’s birther-esque drama — the Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) citizenship saga. TPM has attempted to speak with Trump multiple times over the past three days about the release of Cruz’s birth certificate and revelations the senator holds dual citizenship in Canada and the U.S., but Trump has not responded.
What the idiots who write for lefty blogs have never really understood is that they always gave the Obama birthers more attention and credibility than most of us on the right ever did. It was fringe stuff and, as such, Trump was the perfect blowhard to be associated with it.
The Cruz birthers are also on the fringe. The difference is that the fringe has been in charge of the left for quite some time and that’s why they’re still talking about this.
