Hillary: Birther Hypocrite

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 23, 2015

At a recent town hall meeting businessman turned politician Donald Trump unartfully responded to a comment from the audience that claimed President Obama to be a Muslim.  Trump’s response highlighted some of his weaknesses that include an inability to think on his feet.

It didn’t take long for Democratic hopeful, Hillary Clinton, to attack Trump on his faux pas tweeting:

“Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong.  Cut it out”.

Ms. Clinton has highly a selected view of “hateful rhetoric”.  While running against Obama in 2008 the Clinton campaign made an effort to tie Obama into the Muslim heritage of his father’s family.  This hypocrisy was brought out in the Morning Joe video below.

Hillary Clinton’s willingness to take both sides of an issue is the type of doubletalk that the American people are fed up with coming from Washington politicians.  This is not unrelated to the reasons behind the rise in outsiders Trump, Fiorina and Carson in the Republican Party, nor Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party.  Only the political elites in Washington refuse to see the connection.
