Pandemic Diary Day 152: Deja vu - A Counter to Birtherism

Dear Diary,

I think I figured out what's going on with Trump's re-election campaign. "Goldie Oldies" are surfacing like snakes from the shadows of the 2016 election.

One of Trump's most disgusting lies was that President Obama wasn't born in America. His launch of the "birtherism" bullshit helped him slink into office on the backs of racists and conspiracy goons who saw him as one of their own.

There's another birtherism controversy going around based upon "what people say," that I'm going to share today:

"Trump was NOT a live birth. He was hatched in a cage in Nigeria and sold to a family of gypsies who migrated to the United States."

There, I said it. 

It could be true. Most people agree that Trump is part reptile based upon what his lizard brain comes up with on a daily basis. He sheds the truth like a snake's second skin. 

I really hate to see this stale replay of birtherism again, but there doesn't seem to be an end to it. The only thing to do is mock the moron-in-chief, and see if I can't get a counter birtherism story to stick somewhere in the hinterlands of undecided voters.

One of my favorite sports personalities, Yogi Bara, once cleverly observed, "It's deja vu all over again." I agree with him one hundred percent when it comes to contrived birtherism stories.

So why not fight fire with fire? If there's that many crazy people out there, it doesn't necessarily mean they're all Trump supporters. Frankly, I don't think Biden or Harris would mind if crazies voted for them too. Their vote still counts, right?

In this time of toxic conspiracies', Q-Anon has melded with the remnants of the Republican Party, forming a mutation led by a malicious narcissist who won't accept reality.

What Trump can't get into his tiny brain is this is 2020... not 2016.
