MAGA Troll Reboots Birther Conspiracy for Kamala Harris

https://www.theroot.com/maga-troll-reboots-birther-conspiracy-for-kamala-harris-1831964970

After starting a conspiracy theory smearing special counsel Robert Mueller as a sexual predator, a well-known Trump-loving, plagiarizing Twitter troll has gone old-school by rekindling “birtherism,” spreading it among low-IQ MAGA-culturalists and aiming it at the first black woman to throw her hat into the ring of 2020 presidential hopefuls.

One day after Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced that she is running for president, Jacob Wohl, the “Wolf of Wohl Street” accused of fleecing investors during his previous incarnation as a right-wing Bernie Madoff, tweeted that Harris was not eligible to become president because her parents were not born in the United States.

Although Wohl’s claims seemed like the perfect confluence of racism and xenophobia when people pointed out that Harris was born in America and spent most of her life here (aside from 10 years in Canada during her high school years), Wohl stuck to his racist guns.

1. We just may have reached Terminal Stupidity here...

...it can't get any lower. Though to be fair--if I could change my DU name, "Worthless Leftist Troll" sounds just right...

2. Ugh, this piece of shit again.

Sometimes, no matter how many times you flush, they just won't go away.

3. In other words, unless Kamala Harris can prove that she's descended from an

American slave, it will be presumed that she was born in another country, right?

4. Who Cares Where She, or He Were Raised

Who cares where Kamala Harris, or Barack Obama were raised? An American's citizenship is not based on where they were raised; it is based on where they were born. It also has nothing to do with whether, or not your parents were citizens; once again it is based on whether or not you were born here. Harris' parents' citizenship only matters if she was not born in the United States. My understanding of American citizenship is that if your mother was a citizen and you were born outside of the United States you are still considered a natural born citizen. So, Senator Harris' mother not being an American citizen only matters if she was born in Canada. Her father may not matter because a person's citizenship may not automatically flow from their father.


Maybe this guy knows the Constitution and is just BSing, but we may need to spend more time teaching the Constitution in high school. People really need to know what is in the American Constitution. It is crazy for someone to put such foolishness in tweets. This guy shows a complete lack of understanding of the United States Constitution.

5. Recommended.

Another call out to the racists who feel that only white people can be real Americans.

8. Birtherism didn't prevent Obama from being elected president - twice.

One would think that the right wing would find more effective strategies. But then, they are dumb.

9. Wohl is about as dumb as they get

I'm surprised his mother's cellular account has not run out of minutes...
