Wiretapping Trump’s Reality Detachment, One Tweet At A Time


In a series of reckless tweets over the weekend, President Trump accused President Obama of tapping his phone at Trump Tower. “How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy,” said Trump via his favorite form of communication. Of course Trump offered no evidence, and worse, it seems he received the “intel” from Breitbart News and the cranial hemorrhage conservative radio host, Mark Levin.

Sanders: Nobody Has Asked For My Birth Certificate

During tonight’s Democratic town hall on CNN, Bernie Sanders connected Republican obstructionism during Obama’s seven years in office to the birther movement led by Donald Trump. “What you are seeing today in this Supreme Court situation, is nothing more than the continuous and unprecedented obstructionism that President Obama has gone through,” said Sanders. “And this is on top of this birther issue — which we heard from Donald Trump and others — a racist effort to try to delegitimize the President of the United States.”

President Obama Stays on Kansas Ballot, and Birthers are F’n Delusional

In case you missed this one, for a brief time Kansas considered removing President Barack Obama from the ballot this election. Why? Because the birther craziness knows no end. I’m so glad a panel of Republicans “decided” to allow Obama to remain on the ballot in Kansas. Uh, there was no decision to be made. He is the president. He is running for a second term. He WILL be on the ballot you f’ers. — Am I the only one fuming over this nonsense?

Birtherism: Hey Romney Supporters, Your Bias Is Showing

On Friday, while at a campaign stop in Michigan, Mitt Romney joked, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.” Maybe Romney has gone birther, or maybe he was pandering to the birther element within the Republican Party, or maybe he just made a bad joke. It’s irrelevant to the point I would like to make that Romney supporters are showing their bias when they defend his “joke.”

VIDEO: Romney: ‘No One’s Ever Asked To See My Birth Certificate’

What is Mitt Romney looking to accomplish with his birth certificate joke? Today Mitt Romney said, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.” He said this during a campaign stop in Michigan. Why does Romney feel the need to play to the racist and ‘head up the ass’ fringe of the Republican base when he should be trying to win over the few remaining undecided voters? Surely these undecided voters are in the moderate camp and not likely to subscribe to the absurd birther movement.
