Donald Trump would like people to take him seriously. After all, he's running for the Republican nomination for president (or so he would have us believe).
But The Donald's credibility is not going to improve if he keeps playing the "birther" card, repeating the discredited and silly idea that President Obama is not legally the president because he wasn't born in the U.S.
If you fall for this nonsense, Obama must have been born in Kenya or some other foreign place—all the better to support the equally inane idea that he's a secret Muslim, a communist, and a terrorist-loving subversive who hates America.
R-r-r-r-right. And we've got a really good deal on this New York City bridge.
This sort of hyper-paranoid baloney isn't worthy of a serious political candidate. Come to think of it, Trump isn't a serious candidate, even if his new belief in "birtherism" coincides with the Wingnuts and Tea Party boneheads out there in Red State America.
Our friends at PolitiFact have (once again) checked out the facts of "birtherism" and rated Trump's latest charge. It's false. The true story here.
