NBC equals Natural Born Citizen and Article II states that the president needs to be a “Natural Born Citizen”, or someone living in these United States currently. That qualifier exempts Jefferson et al. because they didn’t have parent who were citizens, since the country didn’t exist prior to the revolution or their parents were English. But it clearly shows that they wanted a person whose parents were born here and they recognised the need to exempt the current generation from that requirement.

I do prefer someone who is actually a Natural Born citizen with no blood ties to Kenya of any place else.

Right, article II clause 5 is the NBC requirement. Where is the exemption? Thanks

The writers exempted themselves when they said,”or those living in the USA today.”
