At least 4 grandparents

There’s been a lot of bizarre things about the US election, and there was one very odd tweet today.

If only people with at least 4 grandparents born in America were voting, Trump would win in a 50-state landslide.

At least 4 grandparents? How many can you have?

Trump wouldn’t be able to vote for himself, his mother was an immigrant from Scotland, so at least two of his grandparents were not born in the US. And his father’s parents came from Germany, so that’s another two not born in the US.

Trump’s children wouldn’t be able to vote for him.

Wikipedia on Coulter “All eight of her paternal great-great-grandparents were immigrants”. That can’t be right, you usually have up to eight. But whatever, there won’t be many Americans who don’t have immigrants in their family.

Only one of my grandparents was born in New Zealand. In a decent democracy that shouldn’t exclude me from voting here.

Another weird story (that has been mentioned here):

Top prize for their weirdest story of the campaign? That would probably have to be last week’s conspiracy theory about a Satanic child trafficking cabal linked to HRC’s chief of staff John Podesta, and allegedly operating out of the Comet Ping Pong Pizza Parlour in Washington DC.

 The story is here.

And if you’re up for some deep diving in the wingnut mindset, you could also check out the Twitter account of Pizza Party Ben (the chief theorist behind the pizza–is-code-for-child-trafficking story) right here. PPB’s pizza evidence cache can be found here.
