Donald Trump’s new conspiracy theory: Obama didn’t attend Harvard Law

Donald Trump’s new conspiracy theory: Obama didn’t attend Harvard Law | The State Column



Harvard Law School:

"Obama's performance inside and outside the classroom attracted more notice than his distinctive personal story. In the spring of his first year at law school, Obama stopped by the office of Professor Laurence Tribe ’66 inquiring about becoming a research assistant.

Tribe rarely hired first-year students but recalls being struck by Obama’s unusual combination of intelligence, curiosity and maturity. He was so impressed in fact, that he hired Obama on the spot—and wrote his name and phone number on his calendar that day—March 31, 1989—for posterity.

Obama helped research a complicated article Tribe wrote making connections between physics and constitutional law as well as a book about abortion. The following year, Obama enrolled in Tribe’s constitutional law course.

Tribe likes to say he had taught about 4,000 students before Obama and another 4,000 since, yet none has impressed him more.

Professor Martha Minow recalls: “He had a kind of eloquence and respect from his peers that was really quite remarkable,” Minow says. When he spoke in her class on law and society, “everyone became very attentive and very quiet.”

Artur Davis ‘93 still vividly recalls how much Obama inspired him with a speech he gave during orientation week on striving for excellence and mastery. Davis, now a United States Congressman from Alabama, insists he left that speech by Obama convinced he’d just heard a future Supreme Court justice—or president."

BTW, Tribe is huge in constitutional law circles. His book was the constitutional bible when I was in law school.

Why does anyone care what this buffoon says? He goes around talking about what unnamed people have "told" him. That is about the lowest form of slanderous nonsense.

I wanna see Trumps hair line.
Real Americans have them.
Well, most of us that still have hair anyway.
Where is his?
Why won't he produce it?
What's he afraid of?
Is he a commie that doesn't have to show one?
REAL men don't fool with their hair like that.

More importantly, who does his hair in the first place?
How much do they get paid?
What is he hiding under there?
A bomb?
A muskrat?
A giant zit?
Fiddle sticks for something to do when he isn't making stuff up?
The country needs to know so we can be informed voters.

Hilarious! Would that require the long form or short form?

I suggest that we all sit back and relax and enjoy the Trump Strategy for 18 months because, as I have said once before somewhere in this forum, Trump has no intention of running for President. Whatever else he may be, he is not a stupid man and therefore I believe that his purpose is to enjoy himself knowing full well that he has no chance at the Presidency.

Rich man's games and let them continue because he will leave the Republican's with a legacy of extremism, a party split and shown to be ridiculous. He will be idolized only by the extreme right wing nuts and there will be no competition against Obama.

All Obama needs to do is sit quietly in the background and without responding, let the games continue until Trump opts out!

Actually what I think he plans to do is simply watch the poll numbers; If this stunt and his subsequent behaviour sinks him down to low single digits, he will declare that he's not running and imply that he never intended to run. If his numbers go and stay high, he might run.

He's left himself a face-saving maneuver, an out.

Either that or it was all a ploy in league with the Republican party to make Sarah Palin seem like a legitimate candidate. Because right now she seems rational in comparison to Trump.

We should know by 16 May when NBC announces whether his reality show is picked up for another year.

Reality show. The ultimate commercial oxymoron.

Well, at least he's representing something.

Funny how no Republican's fussed about *his* sex life or 'morality,' but he can work it out with the various Cotton Mathers in the rest of the primary ticket.
