The willingly conned.
In a roughly 30-minute Donald Trump event billed as a press conference on birtherism, Trump spoke to the subject for merely 36 seconds. And all 36 seconds were a lie. Campaign surrogates, all veterans, used the first 29 minutes of the event to boost Trump. Only then did Trump speak about the conspiracy theory around Barack Obama’s birthplace — a racist conspiracy theory that Obama wasn’t born in the United States, which Trump has fanned for many years.
The willingly conned… as I said.
