Trump should be ashamed for saying Obama-Biden kept Osama bin Laden alive

Donald Trump disgustingly diminishes the presidency when he re-tweets crazy conspiracy theories or hateful messages from white supremacists. He did the former again earlier this week when he amplified a nutcase accusation that the Obama-Biden White House worked with Iran to keep Osama bin Laden alive while staging the death of a bin Laden body double.

The re-tweets provide yet more evidence that Trump is neither morally nor temperamentally fit for the Oval Office.

To be sure, re-tweets do not necessarily imply endorsements. Sometimes they amount to mere information sharing. Still, when something is as loony as the bin Laden nonsense, the only sensible way to share it is by specifically noting its craziness. As in, “Get this! What will people believe next?!”

Instead, Trump clearly delights in spreading stories like that one, as if he embraces anything and everything that can possibly put in a bad light anybody he perceives to be an adversary at the time. He did it when delightedly sharing the vile insinuation in 2016 that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s father conspired with President Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. He did it when repeatedly retweeting messages from white supremacists, including ones who openly identified as such. And now this week he did it twice, not just with the story about faking bin Laden’s death, but also with one alleging that “Biden and Obama may have had [Naval Special Warfare] Seal Team 6 killed.”
