Kamala Harris “Birther” Issue –Hypocrisy on Both Sides?

Trump critics are livid over what they say is another phony “Birther” issue being raised by Donald Trump, Jr. regarding presidential candidate Kamala Harris.  The President’s son re-tweeted an item from a conservative American black man who suggests Harris has no right to identify herself as a black who experienced the same type of discrimination the vast majority of blacks have been subjected to growing up in the United States.  On-Target’s Larry Sparano says there are two sides to that issue, and both have merit.  And, he takes strong exception to CNN’s refusal to even tell its viewers what the controversial tweet actually said.  Larry says if you’re going to criticise something, at least let your audience know, specifically, what it is you are criticising.  Larry says CNN, in effect, is telling its viewers: ‘It’s enough for you to hear from us what we say the facts are’.  Here’s Larry’s take on all of it, in conversation with  Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:  The segment begins with the tail end of the CNN report:

And he warns, if this gets passed, where will it end?  Here’s his conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
