Donald Trump has used the “birther” argument on a couple of occasions over the years. First he said President Obama had not been born in the United States because the President had not released his birth certificate. The President released the requested document showing that he had indeed been born in Hawaii, which, the last time I checked, is indeed a state.
Then Trump tossed the line around that Ted Cruz might not be eligible to run for the White House because he had been born in Canada, albeit to one parent who happened to be an American citizen. Anytime he gets upset with Cruz, Trump will pull out that accusation again and threaten to take Cruz to court over the matter.
And now, earlier this morning, Trump went on ABC’s “This Week,” and was asked about a tweet that he had retweeted. Here’s the tweet in question:

“Because I’m not sure. Let people make their own determination.”
Marco Rubio was born in Miami, Florida, to Cuban parents who immigrated to the United States. Therefore, Senator Rubio is indeed an American citizen. But I’m starting to see a pattern here, and it’s worth exploring.
Here’s my theory: Anytime Trump feels threatened by another person or sees a chance to draw media attention to his own narcissistic self, he tries to accuse the other person of not really being an American, which is his way of trying to belittle and degrade the person he disagrees with or dislikes.
So I would like to take this opportunity to start this rumor, which is based on some information I heard or read somewhere, as Trump just loves to say: Donald Trump is not really an American citizen. He says he was born in Queens, New York, but can he prove it? Does he have video evidence of his birth? Does he have at least three witnesses who can verify he was born in the United States? Because I heard he was actually born in Mexico.
Yes! It all makes sense now! Trump was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and wants to build a wall so his distant relatives cannot enter the United States and point accusatory fingers at him! How did we miss it all this time?
So, Donald, I have to ask: When does your self-deportation begin?
