Hawaii became a state on this day in 1959, becoming America’s 50th state under President Eisenhower. Word on the street is, Donald Trump believes a Polynesian king in Hawaii was of Kenyan descent, thus making Hawaii part of Kenya. Donald has never been one to let facts get in the way of his racist birther buffoonery and still rejects Hawaii as part of America. Beaches, Barack, and beauty, are just a few of the reasons why we love Hawaii. Aloha.
