To: frog in a pot

I’m sure that you know the founders put a clause in the Constitution, making every citizen of the US at the time of the adoption of Constitution eligible to be President.

If you didn’t know that, read Article II. If you did know that, you should be ashamed for what you are trying to do.

"I am sure that you know..."

Well, you got that part correct. However, since you want to make shame a part of this dialog, lets look at the rest of your defective argument.

Article II: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution...

My query expressly referred to a child sired by an Englishman at a point in time after adoption of the Constitution, for the sole purpose of avoiding the issue you try to raise (I was tempted to refer to the War of 1812 to underscore my point).
