Remember five years ago when Trump was a birther? It's classic Trump, and uses the same language he's using now.

I really want every single Republican who has even reluctantly endorsed this guy to stand up and tell me he's not insane and dangerous.

Trump is bringing up the suicide of Clinton aide Vince Foster during that administration and saying something is "very fishy" about it.

Really Donald? You have some very smart people who have told you this?

Donald Trump has decided to take over the news cycle with this ridiculous new/old conspiracy, one that even Whitewater "Prosecutor" Ken Starr said in 1997 was not true. But Starr's was the FOURTH Washington investigation on the matter, because Republicans go after the Clintons like that.

Starr's predecessor, special counsel Robert B. Fiske Jr., concluded in a June 1994 report that a depressed Foster had taken his own life. Bipartisan findings by two congressional panels concluded the same thing.

This, of course, opens the wounds for Foster's family. But there is no sewer into which Donald Trump will not climb for attention.

Twitter is making fun of Donald for this. But mostly Twitter is, more in sorrow than in mirth, aware that this was coming.

Of course, plenty of conservatives do believe this conspiracy, just like all the others. They're conservatives, after all, and nowadays conservatism is not about taxes or foreign policy or legislation, it's about believing that which is not true. Search Vince Foster on twitter and watch them climbing out of their hidey holes like so much vermin. They've been waiting to show you their "evidence" that Hillary killed a guy and when they found Vince Foster his t-shirt said

And those Congressmen and Senators who don't believe Vince Foster was murrrrrderrred will either hide until the next piece of shiny dog poop comes out of Trump's Pez Dispenser mouth or they'll nod and say "well but...."

Just like they did with the Birther crapola. They are not worthy of anyone's vote because they are cowards.

Can you help us out?
