Darrell Issa: Vulgar Birther Donald Trump ‘May Or May Not Be Right’ (Video)
April 12, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—The GOP’s top political witch hunter, and former accused car thief and accused arsonist, is trying to have it both ways with the thoroughly debunked racist birther conspiracy. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, is following the rest of his Republican colleagues, by giving a wink and a nod to crazed birthers. While acknowledging that birtherism should be a non-issue politically, Issa lent credibility to Donald Trump’s buffoonish anti-Obama birther campaign, by saying “He may or may not be right,” about President Obama being a Kenyan-born usurper secret Muslim Manchurian Candidate, programmed at birth to destroy America. In other words, Issa and the Republicans are fearful of alienating their base of racist birthers, whom will never accept a black man in the White House.
Issa made his remarks during an appearance on Fox Business’ Imus in the Morning program.
DON IMUS: Digressing here, um, there’s a lot of talk, unfortunately, about Donald Trump raising — not about him — but about him raising this birth certificate issue, which is — what’s your view on that?
ISSA: You know, the man is president. If Donald Trump wants to go back, that’s fine, that’s his decision. He may or may not be right. Most of us think that it’s not an issue and that he’s unlikely to prove that he wasn’t born in America. What we do care about is, that we don’t think that President Obama is good for America, and we’d like to see him not get a second term. [...]
Issa added that Trump was “entertaining,” but that he preferred a more Reaganesque presidential alternative. You know, a guy who has the good manners to pander to racists, without being a clownish vulgarian, like Donald Trump, a reality TV star and brazen self-promoter.
