Trump Once Again Claims His Father Was Born in Germany

Trump Once Again Claims His Father Was Born in Germany:  While expressing frustration about Germany not paying their fair-share towards NATO, Trump once again claimed that he has always loved Germany, because his father was born there - even though his father was actually born in New York.

So, it turns out that the guy who’s been chiding Elizabeth Warren for so long about being Native American - tells lies about his heritage?  Say it ain’t so!  Now some of you may ask, so President Trump loves Germany?  What’s the big deal?  Nothing, I suppose - except that it appears the Germany Donald Trump loves, was the Germany of 1939 - not 2019.  

In fact, Trump’s father was so proud of his German heritage, that he used to lie and tell people he was “Swedish.”  Of course, that was after Germany lost the war.  Before the war, Fred Trump was believed to be a proud member of the KKK and the German American Bund, a group which promoted the glories of Nazi Germany.  Just a family of doggone, fun-loving people.

Is there any particular reason why any of us here, or anywhere else for that matter, should give a shit about whether Trump's slip of the tongue was an erroneous reference to his father rather than his grandfather?

The simple fact is that Donald Trump comes from a line of racists and white supremacists....

And, he's proud of being a product of his family heritage...

"Like father, like son"...

"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree..."

Etc, etc, etc.....

The father was nasty enough to have rated a line in a Woodie Guthrie song.

Lessee. Bavarian-born, draft-dodging grandpa was a pimp; Bronx-born slumlord dad was sued for housing discrimination; SDNY and NY AG chasing his own business dealings ... I have to wonder if the Fanta Menace has been smelling burnt toast lately. Especially since in his speech last night he three times referred to the "oranges" of the Mueller investigation. (No, I didn't listen to his rant; I read about it on PoliticusUSA.) But you know what? His fanboyz and gurlz couldn't care less -- about any of it.

I hate this timeline.

He was ranting about oranges? If someone on your street was this erratic, wouldn't you be concerned?

I think (and this is only a posit) he meant "origins". And hell yes, I'd be worried.
