(Aug. 14, 2020) — On Thursday, August 13, 2020, when Mr. Baier was interviewing presidential advisor Jared Kushner, Baier brought up the subject of a Newsweek op-ed (8-12-2020) regarding Kamala Harris’s constitutional eligibility for VP. Baier asked Mr. Kushner if he knew anything about the issue. Of course, Kushner stated that he had not seen the op-ed and therefore could not comment on the subject. Immediately, Bret Baier came back with his own belief that Senator Harris was born in Oakland, CA (which is true), and thus she was, and I quote Baier, A NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN! I guess it didn’t matter to professor Baier that Harris’s parents at the time of her birth were both citizens of foreign countries (father a Jamaican and mother a citizen of India).
So, if I may be so presumptuous, Kamala Harris is a NATIVE BORN American or, as it is sometimes called, an ANCHOR BABY. This is a matter of constitutional law, Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, and the 14th Amendment which is also applicable. On the other hand, A NATURAL BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN IS A PERSON BORN IN THE UNITED STATES WHOSE PARENTS (both of them) AT THE TIME OF THE CHILD”S BIRTH WERE AMERICAN CITIZENS. The concept is “NATURAL” born, and arises out of exactly that, nature, and not from man’s words or the written law. Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m not an attorney or a constitutional scholar, either.
Mr. Baier, please do your viewers (November’s ELECTORATE) the courtesy of informing them CORRECTLY. In my opinion, you have a journalistic duty to re-visit what you said on air yesterday and clarify it for everyone. Frankly, I doubt that you will, even though you are a very highly-regarded member of the news media. OUR U.S. SUPREME COURT WON’T EVEN TOUCH THE ISSUE WITH THE PROVERBIAL TEN-FOOT POLE (despite its importance, especially these days from a national security standpoint, and obvious relevance to our constitution and also, I contend, because our country in the modern era has already, shall we generously say, mistakenly elected a constitutionally-ineligible individual by the assumed name, “Barack Hussein Obama”).
