Donald Trump held a Q&A session in New Hampshire yesterday and, in a refreshing twist, made all topics fair game. “Make them vicious, terrible questions,” he encouraged.
Well, he got what he asked for. You’re bound to have a strong opinion on the first question asked:
“We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. You know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American. We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question—when can we get rid of them?”
No stranger to fielding hot-button questions, Trump gave a composed response. “A lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there,” Trump replied. “We’re going to be looking at that and a lot of different things.”
You can be certain, though, that Trump has a detailed opinion on the matter. This past July, Anderson Cooper asked Trump if he still believed Obama wasn’t born in the United States. “I really don’t know,” Trump told him. “I don’t know why he wouldn’t release his records.”
Despite Trump’s measured response at the Q&A session, the lefties are in uproar, and you will roll your eyes when you learn why.
Joining a chorus of outraged leftivists, Hillary Clinton jumped in the Twitter fray: “Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong. Cut it out.”
What is this ridiculous notion that Donald Trump is somehow responsible for the words coming out of someone else’s mouth? Oh, never mind, it’s probably dangerous to assume a liberal would understand the concept of personal responsibility.
Trump’s rejoinder shut things down quickly. “The media wants to make this issue about Obama,” Trump told the Washington Post. “The bigger issue is that Obama is waging a war against Christians. Christians need support in this country. Their religious liberty is at stake.”
