In which Wolf Blitzer, of all people, schools Donald Trump on the air over his position on birtherism. An excerpt:
WB: Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you.
DT: You are, Wolf. Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous, and if you’d ask me a question and let me answer it.
WB: Here’s the question, did the conspiracy start in 1961 where theHonolulu Star-Bulletin and the Advertiser contemporaneously published announcements that he was born in Hawaii?
DT: Many people put those announcements in because they wanted to get the benefit because of getting so-called born in this country. Many people did it. It was something done by many people even though they weren’t born in the country. You know and I know it.
Trump hosts a fundraiser for Mitt Romney tonight in Las Vegas.
