(TeaParty.org) – For eight years, birthers were subject to constant mockery from the left, and even some on the right, for what consistently proved to be legitimate concerns over Obama’s highly suspect “proof” of his native citizenship.
We won’t list all the reasons why we had very good reason to believe that Obama was not, in fact, born in the United States has he consistently claimed, but whether or not you believe he was most likely foreign-born, you had to admit there was a decent stack of evidence.
What the birther theory was not was simply pulled out of thin air. Obama had a Kenyan father. It’s well-documented he spent time and was even educated abroad as a child. His mother was connected to and even possibly romantically involved with more than one foreign national.
The left scoffed, naturally, but now that the tables have turned and a man they hate with the white-hot fire of a thousand suns is in office, no conspiracy theory is too outrageous for them.
Even if it’s made up of nothing more than pure imagination.
Big League Politics has the story:
“Chait: Unlikely but possible that Trump has been Russian intel asset since 1987,” said the banner across the screen as New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait speculated wildly.
MSNBC invited Chait on air to discuss his most recent opinion piece, titled “What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987,” published in the once-revered magazine on Sunday. The segment was presented to the audience as “news.”
In his piece, Chait blatantly admitted that the political left has no actual proof of “collusion” with the Russians, but rather that the president’s detractors are simply making up conspiracy theories.
“And since trying to discern the size and shape of the scandal is an exercise in uncertainty, we focus our attention on the most likely outcome, which is that the story goes a little deeper than what we have already discovered,” he wrote. “Say, that Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort told their candidate about the meeting they held at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer after they were promised dirt on Hillary Clinton; and that Trump and Kushner have some shady Russian investments; and that some of Trump’s advisers made some promises about lifting sanctions.”
What other theories should we give airtime to under the "unlikely but possible" standard? pic.twitter.com/ySX5jlaNAQ

Right–so if there’s even a slight chance that Trump has been a Russian asset for decades because this dude just says so we should take it seriously?
The left is absolutely outdoing themselves. Who else loves watching them melt down?
