So this is a thing that happened today.
Right wing provacateur and noted member of Densa, Jacob Wohl, posted a tweet alleging that Kamala Harris is ineligible to be President because she is not a US citizen.
Kamala Harris is NOT eligible to be President. Her father arrived from Jamaica in 1961—mother from India arrived in 1960
Neither parent was a legal resident for 5 years prior to Harris’s birth, a requirement for naturalization
Kamala was raised in Canada

Then Ana Navarro (among MANY others) pointed out the obvious.
Here we go again with the “birther” crap. Same drummed-up charge used against Obama to question his citizenship and legitimacy. Hmmmmm…..I wonder what Obama and @KamalaHarris have in common? 🤔 https://t.co/FJALAcAsXd

To which, Chris Cuomo brilliantly replied:
“And hopefully there will be no games where the issue keeps changing for righty accusers…and…the legit info abt Harris comes out to deal with the allegation ASAP. The longer there is no proof either way, the deeper the effect.”
After fierce backlash, Cuomo claimed he meant that the people making the allegation that Harris is ineligible must provide proof to back up their claim.
The “no proof either way” makes clear, however, that demands are going to be made for Kamala to produce a birth certificate proving she was born in Oakland, California.
Great going legitimizing Birtherism 2.0, Cuomo. You utter moron.
Response from Kamala’s national press secretary. If you are on Twitter, you should follow him.
