Donald Trump isn’t having a good day. He’s been thoroughly bashed after taking credit for proving that President Obama was not born in Kenya. Reporter Katy Tur has been targeted by Trump supporters ever since she began covering his campaign. Today, as if karma stepped in, while reporting for MSNBC at the Trump International Hotel, Donald’s stage collapsed behind her.
“And the stage is falling apart behind us,” Tur said while people can be heard yelling in the background.
“If you can see this,” she added while turning around, looking at the collapsing stage.
A picture of the aftermath was tweeted:

After admitting that President Barack Obama was born in the U.S, Trump shamelessly plugged his new hotel. Just earlier in the week, Donald neglected to admit that Obama was born on U.S. soil. Note to conservatives: Hawaii is not a foreign country, OK? For years now, Donald has put himself in the spotlight to head the racist birther movement. It’s as if Trump and his supporters do not believe that a black man can legitimately hold the highest seat in the land.
In 2012, Donald announced that he had an “October surprise.” This was to be the moment that Donald offered proof that Obama usurped the Presidency. Obama had already released his long-form birth certificate at this point. So instead, the bloviating billionaire offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice, but only if the president released his college application records and transcripts, along with his passport application by the end of the month.
And then today, as we head closer to election day, Donald blamed Hillary Clinton for his own birther conspiracy. Then his stage collapsed. It seems quite fitting, don’t you think?
