In an appearance on Fox News (where else?), former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) said that President Obama is "inciting" birther conspiracy theorists by planning a trip to Kenya in July.
“I think his trip back to Kenya is going to create a lot of chatter and commentary amongst some of the hard right, who still don’t see him as having been born in the U.S.," Sununu said, adding "I personally think he’s just inciting some chatter on an issue that should have been a dead issue a long time ago."
President Obama is planning a trip to Kenya this summer to attend the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit.
As we well know, crazy conservative conspircy theorists love to claim Obama, who was born in Hawaii, was actually born in Kenya and therefore is not legally qualified to be President.
So, stupid people believe stupid things, and the President of the United States is supposed to give consideration to how his travel itinerary might stir them up. Yeah, he's going to do that.
Don't worry, Governor Sununu, there is limited opportunity for birthers to appears more foolish.
