Conservatives Go Birther on Ted Cruz

Birther-in-Chief Donald Trump kicked off the festivities last night when he called into My Fox New York and questioned Ted Cruz's eligibility.

"It's a hurdle, somebody could certainly look at it very seriously," Trump told My Fox New York on Monday, about Cruz's foreign birthplace.

"He was born in Canada. If you know and when we all studied our history lessons, you are supposed to be born in this country, so I just don't know how the courts would rule on it. It's an additional hurdle that he has," Trump added, hinting that Cruz wouldn't qualify as a "natural born citizen," one of the constitutional requirements for a U.S. president.

"Somebody" should look into it he says, just not him.

The last time Trump looked into someone's place of birth, a couple of investigators were dispatched to a far away land and never seen again.

Are those sad sacks still in Hawaii, grizzly and disheveled like Tom Hanks after five years spent on an island?

Meanwhile, Greg Gutfield of The Five managed to make a birther joke aimed at Ted Cruz and President Obama.

"Aren't we tired of having a president who wasn't born here?" Gutfeld asked, referencing Cruz's Canadian birthplace and those that believe President Obama was born in Kenya.

Ha! Get it? Because Cruz and Obama were both born in other countries except not really.

This is all very ironic to me because Cruz actually was born in another country while President Obama was born in Hawaii, but conservatives will compare the two while biting off their own head.

As for my fellow liberals, I'd advise against scrutinizing Ted Cruz's place of birth. Leave that to the hucksters on the right who will undoubtedly turn the Republican primary into a bloodbath.

    So the short-fingered vulgarian, Donald Trump, is going full birfer on Ted Cruz. Well, why not? It worked out so well for him the last time he tried. *snerk*

    (In case someone hasn’t figured this out yet, Trump couldn’t care less if Barack Obama or Ted Cruz was born on Mars, as long as his own name gets in the news.)

    “See, Republicans and wingnuts? That’s how it’s done in the reality-based world.”

    Ah, yes, but we all know they don’t live in the reality-based world.

    His mom was an America citizen when he was born. Therefore he is a natural born American citizen. His place of birth is irrelevant. Boom, done, moving on.

    See, Republicans and wingnuts? That’s how it’s done in the reality-based world.

      In 3rd grade I learned that as long as one parent is an American citizen so are any kids of that parent. I learned this in 3rd grade…3rd fucking grade. Trump with all of his alleged millions can’t buy and read a civics book? I suspect it’s reading part that is so darn pesky…it might shatter his illusion.
