I don't get a lot of things actually, but let's stick with (t)Rump and this birther / non-birther crap.
I get he might believe the shit about Obama not being born in Hawai'i. I get that he's spent the last five years touting this.
I truly believe that he didn't believe any of what he was saying - but that he's just a racist, scum prick and he liked the attention of relaying such things, even - or only - if for just grandstanding reasons.
And it's a story he's gone on and on about for half a decade.
Now the tune has been changed. Or has it?
No, Il Douche gets a 30 minute press event for his hotel (which you should really read the Washington Post review), after which he hastily mentioned the 180. No apology of course, but I laugh that the press - or anyone - thinks that he was going to give one.
This it not a man of "I'm sorry, I was wrong".
My confusion isn't with the original story itself - it's with the, why bother changing it now? Is there a rationale that if he didn't he'd lose some kind of votes?
It's all well and good he said it, I suppose. The people who believed that story / lie aren't going to suddenly go "oh, well if Donald believes that Obama is an American, than it must be true". And even if they did - so fucking what?
For all of Donald's politicking, you'd think he was running against Obama, not Clinton.
Il Douche doesn't really bow to public pressure, and another thing I can't figure out is: why in the last two weeks, of all the stories / fibs / outright lies he's told, is this one raising its ugly head again? Who is even bringing this up as an issue let alone a current one.
The things the media focuses on is baffling to me. When his campaign manager asked a CNN anchor, "are you calling him a liar?" I would have paid a kerjillion dollars for her to say, "Yes. Yes, I am".
So, for something so incredibly stupid, (t)Rump gets to control the news cycle for a good 3-4 days.
This is insane.
