Birthers Racism

President Obama Exists Therefore Birthers Are Incited

Written by SK Ashby

Former New Hampshire governor and GOP campaign surrogate John Sununu nunu-ed all over himself today upon learning that President Obama will travel to Kenya in July.

Sununu appeared on Fox News today where he accused the president of baiting people like himself.

SUNUNU: “His trip back to Kenya is going to create a lot of chatter and commentary amongst the hard right, who still don’t see him as having been born in the U.S. He’s just inciting some chatter on an issue that should have been dead a long time ago.

Racists are going to continue saying racist things and that's obviously the president's fault.

"Why is the president dividing America by traveling to Kenya?"

If irony were a superpower, Republicans may actually be capable of winning the White House again. It's not the president fault that an entire cottage industry dedicated to racist innuendo and imagery sprung up following his election, nor is it his fault if traveling to another country rouses birthers from their slumber.

If the president really did schedule this trip just to troll racists, I'd say his troll game is A+. He doesn't even have to say anything. Simply existing while doing presidential things or "presidenting while black" is enough.
