Mr. wOw was in a good mood this a.m. when word came that the president — after weeks of hectoring by the physically and mentally bloated Donald Trump — was releasing his original birth certificate. The “Birther” issue is nothing new. But Trump in one of the ugliest moves by a public person, took it to a new level.
And now the president has given in. He has the produced the document that the state of Hawaii restricts from all its citizens, including, up till this morning, the President of the United States.
Of the weak moves this intelligent, well-meaning man has made in his three years in office, this has to the weakest, the worst, the biggest miscalculation. Does he think the issue is going to go away now? Hardly. The “long form” birth certificate will be declared a forgery, just as the certificate of live birth was questioned. And where will it end? Trump has already expanded his “investigation” of the president by declaring him a “terrible student” and demanding to see his school records — though few presidents have ever done so.
What next? The legality of his marriage? The legitimacy of his children?
I am so distressed right now that voting for Obama again seems a grave error. I’ll probably get over my distress. Who else is there to vote for? But I’ll cast my ballot with an even heavier heart than I did the first time.
Oh, Mr. President, why couldn’t have stayed strong on this. You have given Donald Trump the biggest hard-on of his life. (I have a feeling that even so, it is not very impressive) And now? Trump will for sure run for the highest office in the land.
To make matters even more pathetic, Trump had his own press conference, crowing about what he “made” Obama do, what a great man he (Trump) is, etc. And, of course Donald’s press conference ran before the president’s.
I’m drinking my lunch.
Oh, don’t say — yes, I would anyway.
