You Won't Believe Trump's Latest Conspiracy Theory Nonsense

Belief

Donald Trump was up to his usual 'birther conspiracy' shenanigans this week after Loretta Fuddy, the State Health Director of Hawaii who authorized the release of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, died.


As Huff Post reported, 65-year-old Fuddy was the only person killed when a plane plummeted into the ocean off the Hawaiian island of Molokai. The nine other passengers on the flight all survived.

The real estate tycoon apparently found this death suspicious and immediately began using it to continue trying to justify his theory that President Obama was not, in fact, born in the United States. He tweeted:

“How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s “birth certificate” died in plane crash today. All others lived”

Other skeptics also weighed in on the conspiracy across social media suggesting that Obama had a role to play in Fuddy’s deaths.

Trump has long publicly debated the validity of Obama’s birth certificate. 

His chronic birther crusade even led to Obama poking fun at Trump during the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner when the President proclaimed, “No is happier, no one is prouder to put the birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald.”

Those who support the birther movement erroneously contend that Obama was born in Kenya and is therefore ineligible to be president. During his first term, Obama made his U.S. birth certificate a public document, but the conspiracy lives on.
