"More power to him." Those were the words of Sarah Palin on Saturday during an appearance on Fox News, saying that she "appreciated" Donal Trump's efforts to look into the authenticity of President Obama being born in Hawaii. "He's not just throwing stones from the sidelines, he's digging in, he's paying for researchers to find out why President Obama would have spent $2 million to not show his birth certificate," Palin continued.
Effectively, Palin has now put herself squarely in the birther camp with her own words.
In fact, this is working out so well that this statement by David Plouffe lends credence to my still-forming belief that perhaps Obama put Trump up to this. This statement can only egg Trump on to double down on this trope. That ties Palin even tighter to the radical nutwing of the nation.
Perfect! Especially since to release the birth certificate would break the law!
