Secretly, Trump Is Still Clinging to Conspiracy Theories
Before June 2015, the bulk of Trump’s political experience consisted of donations to liberal Democrats and causing a stir over Obama’s birth certificate.
In 2012, Trump announced a $5 million bounty to anyone who could produce then-President Obama’s “real” birth certificate, proving he was born outside of the U.S.
After entering the race for the presidency, himself, Trump was often asked if he still clung to the belief that Obama was not born an American citizen, and on the campaign trail, he seemed to concede that, indeed, Obama was born here.
A new report from the New York Times, however, suggests that maybe he hasn’t so readily abandoned the “birther” movement, after all.
A senator, who asked not to be named, told The Times that Trump is having difficulty moving on from his past claims that Obama wasn’t born in the United States.
Trump advisers reportedly told The Times that Trump has continued to talk about conspiracy theories that aren’t based in fact since taking office.
Not surprising, at all, given that Trump’s only real source of information comes from the National Enquirer, InfoWars, Breitbart, and Gateway Pundit.
He feeds on a steady diet of mush-brained conspiracy theory sites, so it is absolutely no surprise that he’s now privately questioning what he has publicly claimed to believe (at least for the sake of political expediency).
In recent days, it appears he’s now even doubting the authenticity of the “Access Hollywood” recordings, where he boasted of his wealth and celebrity giving him the right to grab women by their private areas, or to kiss them without permission.
Seriously… he heard his voice. He knows if he was there or not, and very likely, unless he’s suffering some sort of organic brain malfunction, he knows if he said those words, or not.
For their part, the producers of “Access Hollywood” have firmly maintained that the audio is legitimate, and has not been doctored, in any way.
Trump, himself, acknowledged it when it first came out, in October 2016. Now he wants to say it’s probably not him?
Yeah. It’s you.
The problem seems to be that a man with possible limitations on his mental capabilities, who receives his information from conspiracy theory sites and internet memes can be led to believe anything. He possesses no critical thinking skills.
Further, our problem is that somebody with this alarming lack of intellectual prowess is leading our country.
