Why does Donald Trump keep saying Obama was born in Kenya, when even Obama has stopped claiming that?

It’s just silly. Obama was born in Hawaii. It’s over, Birthers. But Donald didn’t get the memo. In an interview with the Daily Beast published today, he said:

“Look, it’s very simple,” said Trump, who has spent the past 13 months questioning Obama’s constitutional eligibility to occupy the White House (and only doubled down with his stubborn skepticism after Obama produced a long-form birth certificate, certifying he was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Hawaii, and then hilariously roasted him at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner). “A book publisher came out three days ago and said that in his written synopsis of his book,” Trump went on, “he said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. His mother never spent a day in the hospital.”

Donald. Bubbie. Yes, Obama did say that, but he was lying.

The part about being born in Kenya isn’t true. Obama made it up. He was fibbing. Prevaricating. Perpetuating a falsehood. Some would call it BS. A whopper. A statement that had no basis in reality. If it were possible for Obama’s buttocks to literally detach from his body as the result of a lie, that one would do it.

You’re just going to have to face facts, Donald: Obama is, was, and always will be full of crap.

Barack Obama: Original Birther.
