Too short :(. It wasn't a bad episode but there was SO MUCH that could have been done with this topic.

That was an underwhelming episode. Would've liked it to be longer and more detailed like your others.

If you like this episode, check out "The Uncertain Hour", and the episode "The sentence that helped set off the opioid crisis". It goes pretty deep into it too.

You need to do more in-depth research. The birther conspiracy theory was first cooked up by Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2008 when she was running against Obama. She eventually dropped it when she knew she couldn't win the nomination and an agreement was made that she would join Obama's cabinet. Of course, when it was her turn to be president (so she thought in 2016), she tried to make it a "Trump thing". Which, of course, was absurd because he wasn't running against Obama. Qanon was just rehashing a bunch of old conspiracy theories like all partisan groups do. You can find these nut job sites all over the internet about just about any issue. You need to dig alot deeper to get to the ROOT of ANY conspiracy.

Mike Christopher Hillary's campaign never brought up birtherism. you won't find anything about birtherism said by Hillary or anyone in her campaign. some of her supporters did run with it but it was started by a wacky Illinois candidate. Still the birther movement was brought to the mainstream by Trump. there is no debating that. Trump went on Alex Jones show and praised him. It's clear Trump lives for conspiracies. my favorite is Ted Cruz's dad killed JFK. Even as a Democrat I have to laugh at that one. It just shows that anything Trump reads that will help him or hurt his enemy he will repeat it as president of the US. I find that appalling. https://www.politico.com/story/2016/09/birther-movement-founder-trump-clinton-228304
