He will probably tell you that some of his best friends are black too
The billionaire blowhard offered that zany explanation after critics blasted his new birther rants as race-baiting. In an address at the North Carolina State Republican Convention, Donald Trump said the outcome of this season’s “Celebrity Apprentice” shows he’s no racist.
“Somebody said, ‘Oh, because I brought up the birth certificate, I’m a racist,’ ” Trump said Friday.
“I said, ‘How can I be a racist? I just picked Arsenio Hall.’ ”
Questions over President Obama’s birthplace appeared to be put to rest last year after he released his long-form birth certificate, which showed he was born in Hawaii.
But Trump has seized on last month’s release by Breitbart.com of an Obama biography compiled nearly two decades ago as evidence of a conspiracy to conceal the President’s origins.
The biography identified Obama’s birthplace as Kenya — an assertion the agent who edited it later told Yahoo News was an error.
WTF!? Did this idiot just play the ultimate “Trump” Race Card?
