Joseph Farah is perhaps the most well-known “birther” who crusaded for President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate a few years ago. Well, Farah might be a close second to Donald Trump, who he has expressed support for in the past.
That was all before Trump decided to make a run for the presidency, though. Farah has chosen now to put his weight behind a different candidate, even though he has said he admires Trump in the past. Farah is supporting Ted Cruz.
What makes this even more interesting is that Trump has accused Cruz of not being eligible for the presidency because of his Canadian birthplace. He’s even given legal advice to Cruz and spoken on the topic a number of times.
He posted a column called “Why I Like Ted Cruz.” It turns out, he believes Cruz “loves America,” which is more important than being born in America.
