“And she wants 550 percent more coming from Syria than the thousands and thousands that our president, quote ‘president,’ has coming in.”

“And she wants 550 percent more coming from Syria than the thousands and thousands that our president, quote ‘president,’ has coming in.”

Trump even made air quotes around the word “president.”

Trump has grown ever more desperate as his presidential hopes crumble, sounding more erratic, if not unhinged, with each passing day. It is, of course, possible that Trump is hinting that perhaps Obama is not legitimately president for some other reason. After all, the Republican-controlled Congress seems never to have recognized Barack Obama as president, despite two wins.

However, given the increasingly erratic nature of Trump’s rhetoric, it is not outside the realm of possibility that, faced with imminent defeat, Trump has decided to play the birther card once again.
