Trump’s ploy outrageous

By   /   May 10, 2011  /   Comments

Ridiculous! Outrageous! These are reactions to Donald Trump’s insistence that President Obama is not an American citizen by birth despite all evidence to the contrary.

Trump doesn’t really want the truth; he wants to defame. Perhaps he was attempting to distract the president from the many major issues he is forced to face. Never in the history of America has a president had to release his birth certificate in this public format. Is Trump trying to prove the old adage if a lie is repeated often enough, people will begin to believe it is true? Donald’s “trumped-up” issue is a disservice to the American public and only gives further evidence that he tends to suffer from egomania.

Is Trump being used to offset the character and validity that President Obama is exactly who and what he said he is. Trump is reported to have said “he and others are going to have to assess the document’s authenticity.” Could it be that Trump is speaking for a segment of the Republican Party? His interest in being a potential presidential candidate is merely to get media attention. This is just a ploy. Thus, all of this drama over a birth

certificate is irrelevant. How do you make sense out of nonsense?

The idea of having the president of the United States respond to the false allegations of a court jester is ludicrous and embarrassing. What does this do to our global image with our allies and the other nations? How it that the GOP leadership has not clearly stated enough is enough? Is all of this part of a devious plan without regard to how damaging this may be to our country?
