Trump is still reportedly pushing his racist "birther" conspiracy theory about Obama I have little patience for people when it comes to the Obama birther conspiracy -- the simple fact is that if you ever trafficked in that BS or turned a blind eye to people around you engaging in that BS -- you are a racist, period. Still to this day, you have over 40% of republicans who still believe Obama is not a citizen and was born in Kenya -- 40%?? They overwhelmingly support a man whose whole political credibility was born from his support of the birther movement. What's even funnier is that Obama has shown more evidence of his place of birth than Trump has -- Obama has released his long form certificate, had state officials vouch him, and his birth was announced in the local newspaper -- Trump on the other hand, was always believed to be a US citizen because he is white. So explain to me how one can still call himself a birther or even try to claim they have some doubt about his place of birth, but not be a racist??
