GOP Moderator Donald Trump: Yeah, Obama's Birth Certificate Looks Pretty Fake To Me

It's a belief that part of the party still holds, so I guess it's not really the worst thing in the world if Donald Trump begins asking candidates about it. I suppose they should answer one way or the other; if the Never Say Die caucus on this "issue" decides they can't vote for someone who thinks that a genuine birth certificate is genuine, so be it.

Still, it would add to the unhelpful Freaks & Geeks narrative the GOP has going about the field.

“A lot of people agree with me,” Trump said in response to a question from World Net Daily’s Robert Unruh.”They find it amazing, that out of — that all of a sudden, miraculously, this birth certificate just appeared. People have questioned the birth certificate, and many people do still question it.”

“I happen to think,” Trump continued, “it’s very strange that after years, all of a sudden it appears. And I’ve also said, ‘How come there are no records that his mother was ever in the hospital?’

The National Review's editorial calls for candidates to boycott the debate. Nice thought, but some guys, like mine, probably need the exposure.

Since this will be a reality-tv show, with Trump announcing his pick for Presidential Apprentice shortly after the boardroom, I mean, shortly after the debate: It's my own trivial observation that the real goal in any reality tv show is not to win the money, but to keep one's dignity. Which is hard when you've already made the first dignity-eroding step of appearing on a reality-tv show at all.

Any candidates who do participate should keep that in mind here. Keeping you dignity is winning. Groveling for Mr. Trump's boardroom favor would not be consistent with keeping one's dignity.

Good Point by Andrew McCarthy... Given that 90% of the debates were moderated by left-liberal clowns, why should Donald Trump be of any particular worry?

This is an important point. While it's impossible to undo the damage already done, as a matter of going forward, candidates can and should insist that Republican/conservative debates will be hosted and moderated by actual Republicans and conservatives.

We don't really need all the bullshit liberal questions. They're irrelevant to the task at hand, which is, of course, to elicit information useful in selecting a Republican/conservative standard-bearer.
