Now that Trump stood up and accepted the birth certificate as authentic, that was the last we’ll hear of it, right?
It seems Sherrif Arpaio didn’t get the memo.
USA Today reports:
At 4 p.m. sharp, Arpaio and a member of his Sheriff’s Office’s Cold Case Posse had a big message for the 40-odd journalists in attendance: You were wrong.
Arpaio and his aides announced that a five-year investigation had “proved” that Obama’s birth certificate from Hawaii in 1961 was a fake. An accompanying presentation highlighted what they called “9 points of forgery” on the document, which focused on the angles of date stamps, typed letters and words.
According to the theory, the birth certificate presented to the public was created after copying and pasting information from the legitimate birth certificate of a woman born in Hawaii.
The story is certainly getting some traction. Some significant attention. No surprise there.
But is it REAL? Do we accept what Trump said point-blank when asked about Obama’s citizenship?
Or was it a forgery?
Maybe if Obama hadn’t been so dedicated to unraveling American Traditions, the public would find a story about him being illegitimate and foreign-born less compelling.
But Obama was VERY invested in the wholesale unraveling of US traditions. No wonder it’s so easy to question his allegiance to America. He cares so little for it.
Is it real, is it ridiculous?
Isn’t it funny that we can ask the same thing about Obama?
