Have you seen the video? If you haven’t, please watch it. I think it’s a perfect example of how the press can take a benign moment with a candidate and turn it into something controversial. This should really make Americans think twice before believing what you read from the main stream media. This whole controversy is because Trump just skipped over a guy who asked about Obama being a muslim. Trump just skipped over the guy’s question and moved on to he next question. Never in my memory has a non-answer to a question caused such a stink. It’s very clear that the press is going after Trump in a BIG, BIG way. It was Hillary Clinton who brought this whole topic up when she ran against Obama in 2008. I think the press can’t have it both ways and I love that Trump said he’s not morally obligated to defend Obama…a perfect response.

The Leader of the Free World doesn’t need Donald Trump to have his back, the billionaire developer said in a Twitter blast Saturday.

“Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don’t think so!,” Trump wrote, referring to his refusal to correct a man who called President Obama a Muslim at a campaign event Friday.

“This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something,” he added. “If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance!”

A New Hampshire man said Muslims were a “problem in this country,” that the President is not American, and asked Trump “when can we get rid of them?” during a Rochester, New Hampshire town hall
[ed.– the phrasing of the questioner did not make clear that “when can we get rid of them” was about Muslims or whether it was about the training camps of which he was speaking].
