Move over Sheriff Joe Arpaio – the Donald is making a run at being the leader of the birthers. In an interview with the Daily Beast – reality TV star Donald Trump once again claimed President Obama was born in Kenya – not the United States. Earlier this week – the state of Hawaii once again released more documents proving President Obama was born in the state – but Trump is pinning his argument on an obscure write-up by one of President Obama’s literary agents more than twenty years ago referencing that Obama was born in Kenya.

Trump is a shrewd businessman so he knows exactly what he’s doing. Today – a majority of Republicans believe the President is not a U.S. citizen – and Trump is willing to play to these whackos. So, will Mitt Romney – who’s best buds with the Donald disavow the crazy talk – or pander to it in a desperate bid to win the White House? Time will tell.
