Sanders attacks Trump on birther issue

Photograph of Bernie SandersI must admit that I feel a little sorry for Hillary Clinton right now, as Donald Trump gets treated by the media as the president-elect, and Bernie Sanders moves to debate Trump one-on-one in California. (I doubt the debate will ever happen.)

Sanders reminded supporters in Pomona, California, of Trump’s dalliance with birtherism, reported the LA Times. He told the May 26 crowd:

Not so many years ago, before he was a candidate, he was involved in a so-called birther movement. The birther movement was delegitmizing President Obama by claiming that he was not born in the United States. That was very ugly effort to delegitimize the presidency of the first African American president in our history — not acceptable.

    DOC:I feel a little sorry for Hillary Clinton right now, as Donald Trump gets treated by the media as the president-elect:

    Like you did for Sheriff Joe Arpiao during his Trial with Snow? 😂 I’m not sure if you’re feeling sorry for people who are under investigation, and then after the conviction you don’t feel sorry for them any more, or what? I know this site has had a facination with Trials before a time or two.. But that does seem to be politically motivated towards Democrats minus Democrats who challenged Obama and McCain in Federal Court.

    That means I don’t get felt sorry for here. And I’m wondering with the Mess that’s going on with Clinton is that sympathy “gender” oriented, because she wouldn’t have it. (?)

    Why don’t you cover FACTS that I think you would understand much better than I on issues like a Personal Server? I mean Bernie Sanders passed on it, but you might have some vindication understanding others don’t?

    I mean Hillary’s involved with the Birther issue. She certainly was apart of Co-Sponsoring H.R 511.

    HILLARY CLINTON TRIAL UPDATE – For those who didn’t think Hillary Clinton’s Practices as Secretary of State would every come under Trial, or think the FBI Investigation is taking too long, or haven’t had enough with the release of the long-anticipated State Department Inspector General’s special report which implicated her May 25th in incompetence and unlawful practice in policy check out Judicial Watch, Inc. -v- U.S. Department State Plaintiff, Civil Action No. 13-CV-1363 action is kicking into full gear, covered on CSPAN. The first witness was called Wednesday May 18th, 2016 with some juicy details we’d like you to consider in the upcoming June 7th California Primary for President in the Democratic Party . One of the important things to remember is the Witnesses are questioned under oath..Cont.,

    Regarding Senator Sanders comment about Obama?

    That was very ugly effort to delegitimize the presidency of the first African American president in our history
    :

    If Sen. Sanders had said ” Black American president ” as he did when he said ” Black Lives Matter” opposed to “All Lives Matter” in the debate, we may not have got the idea Obama was Foreign First. ie. Africa is a Continent. when describing “color” distinction between Obama and those other Presidents, when we “thought” it was color he was talking about, but didn’t hear him referring to the “Place” he thought Obama was born. That would in fact be consistent with Africa – African American.

    So, was Bernie refering to Obama who was born in Kenya that is a Place in Africa?

    Was Bernie calling Trump an insulter for delegitimizing Obama, when it came out of his mouth in the same sentence?

    Arpaio admitted going in that he was guilty of contempt of court. I don’t feel sorry for him because his predicament was of his own making. That said, you are not finding me advocating harsh punishment for him. That’s for others to decide. I was far more interested in the facts disclosed in the hearing, which have benefited everyone interested in the Cold Case Posse investigation of Obama’s birth certificate.

    Don’t be silly. No one takes the phrase “African American” to mean an American born in Africa. African American is an American of African descent. Take some of your campaign war chest and buy yourself a dictionary.

    CRJ: That means I don’t get felt sorry for here.

    Cody, some of us here do feel sorry for you. I hinted at that the other day.

    I feel sorry for you because I believe you to be suffering from a mental disorder that drives you to reach conclusions based almost exclusively on your pre-existing positions rather than from a process of evaluating facts and applying logic.

    I stated the other day that I would stop mocking you, and I apologize for my disrespectful treatment of you in the past. I am telling you, man to man, that I sympathize with your condition. Unfortunately, it is the kind of condition that militates against its own solution, as you are probably unlikely to understand the degree to which you need help.

    I truly wish you the best for the future, and I deeply hope that some of what I am saying may penetrate your determined resistance.

    But Judy doesn’t believe he suffers from a mental disorder.

    bob: But Judy doesn’t believe he suffers from a mental disorder.

    I think you’re right and, as I believe I implied, that aspect of his condition makes it much less likely that he will seek treatment for it and therefore deepens my sympathy for him.

    Dr. Conspiracy: silly, stupid

    These are the kinds of words I’m called because I relate Africa as a Continent , Kenya in Africa, and African a term used in identifying people from Africa?

    It’s Geography Gentleman, it has to do with a [Place] known to exist on Earth. 🌎

    There are many black people who were [not] born in Africa. There are many black people who are born in Africa. In fact, many refer black people as European. Why not call black people born here American.(?)

    If these facts are silly, stupid, or delusional in your estimation, perhaps you should check back into Grade School?

    I do not think any Court of Law would consider these facts delusional, but might think those thinking that about them silly, stupid, or delusional needing help themselves?

    Pick the beam out of your own eye before ya pick the sliver out in mine.

    Have a Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

    In Kenya, they call the people who are black “African” and the people who are white “European” and the middle easterners “Arabs” and the Asians “Asian.”

    In 10 comments, we’ve gone to discussing Sanders’ attacking Trump as a birther to Judy attacking Doc for noting that Judy doesn’t know the difference between “Africa” and “African.”

    CRJ: So, was Bernie refering to Obama who was born in Kenya that is a Place in Africa?

    No. African American means “American of African ancestry” or “Black American.” Period.

    I was born in New York but I refer to myself as Irish-American, as do many other Americans of Irish descent. I went to school with many Italian-Americans. There also are many Mexican-Americans, Polish-Americans, German-Americans, and so on. If you have a problem with that, it’s your problem.

    Barack Obama’s father was African, but Obama is African-American.

    There’s almost a billion ‘black’ people born in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. More than in the entire continent of Africa.
