How Donald Trump's Remarks About Renewed Clinton Email Probe Mirror Birtherism


During a campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Monday, Donald Trump said he was "sure" that what's contained in the emails at the center of the FBI's renewed probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private server is "absolutely devastating."

Those emails are under review by the FBI, and their content has not been released publicly, but Trump appears certain in his pronouncement despite a lack of evidence.

His trading on uncertainty without proof may seem familiar: His talk of the renewed probe mirrors his years-long perpetuation of the birther movement.

Actually, his entire campaign is demonizing Clinton. So his whole campaign mirrors birtherism - which is another way it's a campaign based entirely on Big Lies. The paper hanger would be proud.

1. He has to direct attention away from himself. That's gotta tough for him.


He wants everyone to pay attention to him, but his groper image means he can't let himself be the focus any more
