Birtherism is back in the news. Yesterday the Trump campaign stated that Donald Trump accepts that President Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen, born in Hawaii. And today we learn from The Washington Post that Trump himself denies that.
Here is the key part:
Trump refused to say whether he believes Obama was born in Hawaii. “I’ll answer that question at the right time,” Trump said. “I just don’t want to answer it yet.” When asked whether his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was accurate when she said recently that he now believes Obama was born in this country, Trump responded: “It’s okay. She’s allowed to speak what she thinks. I want to focus on jobs. I want to focus on other things.”
The birthplace of a presidential candidate is a valid question. Because the qualifications for President are in The Constitution. Specifically U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 5.
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
We have the birth certificate, move on, acknowledge it, but instead Mr. Trump is feeding the bottom-feeders. This is a non-issue, even if Trump believes it, give it up.

EDIT: About two hours after I recorded the video, Mr. Trump gave a speech and announced, “President Barack Obama was born in the United States.”
Dr. Jill Stein is running for President on the Green Party ticket. For the Senator Bernie Sanders supporters, she appears to be a natural fit for them. Why aren’t they or you supporting Jill?
Take a look at her platform positions like: A Green New Deal, Jobs as a Right, End Poverty, Health Care as a Right, Education as a Right, A Just Economy, Protect Mother Earth, and more. This fits with Bernie, right?
The polls show Dr. Stein from as low as 0% support in Mississippi to 7% in Colorado. So, your circular argument that she isn’t high enough in the polls is YOUR fault if you don’t support her.
Please comment below and tell me Bernie supporters, why don’t you support Dr. Jill Stein?

I had the pleasure of joining host Leland Vittert and fellow guest Karine Jean-Pierre on Fox News Channel Election HQ on August 21, 2016.
We discussed the Hillary Clinton campaign moving forward with plans as they expect to win. I share my take on that and then dive into the Clinton scandals while suggesting Donald Trump “stay in the shadows instead of spewing shadowy language.”

Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle yesterday that he won’t even attempt to compromise with the Republicans. Is this what we’ve become, children throwing tantrums when we don’t get our way?
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says he learned from the mistakes President Obama made in his first term — they taught him that if he wins the White House, he won’t be able to compromise with Republicans in Congress.
“I think a keen mistake that the president made is that he refused to recognize that reality — that these guys (Republicans) were never serious about compromise,” the presidential candidate said in a meeting with The Chronicle’s editorial board Tuesday.
“He kept extending an olive branch, and he kept getting his hand slapped,” Sanders said.
“I do not believe that right-wing Republicans are prepared to work with a progressive president.”
The way to break that logjam, he said, is for people who support Sanders’ “political revolution” to contact their members of Congress directly.

Ted Cruz drops out of the race after Donald J. Trump won Indiana. Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton in Indiana, yet Sec. Clinton is still the presumptive nominee. I say vote your conscience in the primary, regardless of what everyone else is saying who will win.
The Democratic race remains fundamentally unchanged after tonight’s win by Sanders.
Yes, his victory was somewhat surprising, given that all of the polls had Clinton winning and by an average of 7 percentage points.
And yes, Sanders has promised to fight on in the primary until perhaps the convention.
The problem for the Sanders campaign remains delegate math and demographics.
The psychology of Democratic voters continues to look detached from the reality of delegate math.
Trump and Clinton are both pretty much presumptive nominees at this point, but Trump is winning Indiana with about 51 percent of the vote tonight while Clinton is taking only 47 percent and could end up even lower.
As Trump consolidates Republican support, it’s more apparent than ever that Clinton needs a strong Sanders endorsement to unite the Democratic base.
