Donald Trump no different than when Seth Meyers roasted him at WHCD
He also said that there is something about President Obama that makes him ignore this supposed threat from Muslims: “We can’t close our eyes. I don’t know what’s wrong with Obama, he wants to close his eyes and pretend it’s not happening. Why is he so emphatic on not solving the problem? There’s something we don’t know about. There’s something we don’t know about.”
He went on to urge attendees to report their neighbors if they’re suspicious of them, adding, “most likely you’ll be wrong and that’s okay.”
The dog whistle was very clear. It was the rebirth of Donald Trump's birtherism as he 'otherized' the President.
Chris Matthews slammed both Donald Trump and his supporters for continuing this type of shenanigans because of hate and Trump's expectation of dividing Americans for a specific purpose. What purpose? -- Make his White House bid plausible with the created chaos.
While researching incidences of Trump's birtherism of years past, a gem showed up. Seth Meyers used the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner to roast the Donald. What was amazing is how little has changed. Meyers used his skit to illustrate Trump's shallowness. Watch the excerpts. It was brutal to watch. While it was funny, the possibility that this man could become president of the United States of America should give everyone pause.
