I spoke with conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly at the “Metro East Miracle” event today in Collinsville, Illinois sponsored today by former gubernatorial candidate Adam Andrzejewski. Phyllis said that we need to have some experts now look at the birth certificate that was released today. She also gave credit to Donald Trump for forcing Obama to finally release the document.
Phyllis Schlafly: Well have to have some people analyze the birth certificate. I don’t know what the answer to that is. BUt I notice that he did call Donald Trump a nasty name. But, what was so interesting was Trump’s response. He took credit. He looked upon it as a great victory. And, I think that was right because it was Trump who forced the issue on the table.
Question: What do you think of the fact that Obama took two years or three years to release the birth certificate?
Phyllis Schlafly: Well, there has to be a reason for it but I don’t think we know what the reason is for it yet… It’s very strange we do not know. It’s kind of the big mystery of our time.
Question: Now, you don’t call anyone a carnival barker generally, do you?
Phyllis Schlafly: I don’t believe in epithet debating. I think when you resort to epithets you’re losing.
Question: And, Obama lost today didn’t he?
Phyllis Schlafly: I don’t think he gained by it but we’ll see how it plays out.
