Trump Introduced by Birther at Event Where He Blamed Clinton for Birtherism

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump played the cable news networks like the tools they are this morning at his new hotel in Washington D.C. which, as you might have heard, serves spoonfuls of wine for $15 each.

The Trump campaign announced a special event at his hotel where he would finally address his status as a birther, but the event actually turned out to be a 30-minute long infomercial for his hotel, the majority of which was carried live by each cable network, and he didn't apologize for being a birther.

Moreover, Trump was introduced at the event by another birther, retired Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney.

In an affidavit reported [August 30th, 2010] by birther site WorldNetDaily, Thomas McInerney, a retired lieutenant general who now serves as a Fox News military analyst, says that he believes there are "widespread and legitimate concerns that the President is constitutionally ineligible to hold office," and expresses support for an Army officer who is currently awaiting a court-martial for refusing to obey orders from his commanding officers "until the president produces his original birth certificate."

After being introduced by a fellow birther, Trump blamed Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign for starting birtherism, which is a lie. Trump also claimed credit for "finishing" birtherism, and by that he meant he forced President Obama to produce his long-form birth certificate.

In other words, Trump won a trophy for his abject racism.

The traveling press pool was barred from accompanying Trump on the tour of his hotel following the 30-minute infomercial.

Is this why?

    McInerney was the commanding General of all forces in Alaska when I was growing up. Hard to believe he held such high command while being such a complete troll….

    Wouldn’t it be nice if our glorious news media would stop treating Donald Trump as if he were a normal—in several meanings of that word—candidate?

    Yeah Drumph. You “forced” Obama to release his birth certificate. The moment SEAL team 6 took down Osama Bin Laden and just before he properly roasted you at the WHPC dinner, leaving you with a mad poopy face. It was a world class take down of a despicable excuse of a being, which you are.

    “The Trump campaign announced a special event at his hotel”

    I think this is one of the real dangers in a Drumpf presidency. It’s coming to light that Drumpf’s ability to make decisions in international matters may be severely compromised by his personal real estate activities. Likewise, he’s been feeding his own personal bank account with campaign money by staging events at his personally owned locations. I severely doubt that he will be able to separate his personal interests from national ones. To channel Mighty Joe, this is a big fucking deal.

    “…or whatever that was…”

    Even while claiming he is not a birther, he continues to say otherwise out of the other side of his mouth.

    t”Always remember”? Oh Lord. Always remember that that Orange Huckster literally harassed the first black president of the United States by claiming for years that he was not a legitimate citizen of the United States? Well no one has forgotten that or is likely to just because now that President Obama is almost done with his two terms in office that they had decided to now drop the fraud they have been playing for the last 8 years. It didn’t work,,so,,,,,,,,. Never mind. Let’s see, he wanted his birth certificate, long form, his grades from Harvard Law, even though he not only made it onto the Harvard Law Review but was also voted its editor. What a turd. Really, what an absolute turd.

    Now more than ever the media should hammer Trump on this.

    • Was he a naive sucker who got completely duped or is he just a lying, cynical con artist who spread racist lies because it was politically useful to him?

    • What about those investigators? Who are they? What are their names? Trump said their findings were unbelievable. What were those findings?

    This should never be let go. This defines who and what Trump is.

    She created birtherism.

      Those shape shifting lizard people sure do have a great health care system don’t they?…

  • I saw McInerny giving Drumpf’s intro on TV this morning. I couldn’t even begin to stomach it and turned it off. The MSM are just a bunch of suckers.
