Birther of the Nation 0

President Obama’s country of origin is not the only birthplace the Donald Trumples. Field reports (emphasis in the original):

And the conman in chief was at it again today. The man actually lied about where his father was born for crying out loud.

“My father is German, right? Was German. And born in a very wonderful place in Germany, so I have a great feeling for Germany,” Trump said during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who is from Norway.

Ahhhm, no Donald, your father was born in New York. I mean seriously, who does this? Who lies with all the world watching about where his father was born? I am starting to think that the man just can’t help himself. Surely he must have known that this could be easily fact checked. I suppose that when you tell so many lies and you are used to getting away with them you become emboldened to just tell more.

Dick Polman comments on Donald Trump’s council of climate change charlatans who claim that climate change cannot be, but, if it is, it’s benign and beneficial.

A snippet:

Actually, it’s no mystery how we’ve lived to see this day. This day was guaranteed when 46 percent of the electorate chose as its president a flat-Earth crank who tweeted in 2014 that “GLOBAL WARMING bullshit has got to stop!” and has never masked his hostility to science.

In related news, my local rag today had a long article about how rising sea levels are devastating rural coastal communities.
