Zitat
Two supporters of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign reportedly shared the claim that then-rival Barack Obama was not born in the United States and thus was not eligible to be president.

One was a volunteer in Iowa, who was fired, Clinton’s former campaign manager said Friday. The other was Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, according to a former McClatchy Washington Bureau chief.

The issue arose Friday as Donald Trump finally acknowledged that Obama was born in the U.S. Trump, a leading champion of the debunked “birther” conspiracy theory for years, attempted to blame Clinton for starting it when she ran against Obama in 2008 for the Democratic presidential nomination.

In fact, there were several people publicly pushing the theory, which was repeated extensively on conservative news outlets. There were the two Clinton supporters, but there is no evidence that Clinton herself or her campaign spread the story.



Of course there is no evidence Clinton spread the story. The Clintons work like the Mafia where underlings do the dirty work and the capo can deny any knowledge or participation. But if the relationship between Blumenthal, or Sid Vicious, and Hilliary is seriously considered, she knew and approved.

Trump's assertion that the rumor started with the Clintons is, in fact, quite accurate.

The Propagandists and other usual subjects are just losing it over this "story."

Slashings and bombings across the country and still OCDing over Trump not saying "I'm sorry" to Obama, when the facts show the Clinton campaign was the first push the issue.

Twitter is really letting them have it. Every other post is either slamming them or Sick Hillary for her dull-witted "bombing" response.

I predict the 32% media approval figure will be taking a well-deserved nosedive in the next couple of weeks.

Trump should stay away from this topic. It has bumped Hillary's health lies off the headlines and that's not what DT should have wanted. Discipline! Even if Hillary's group flew the story. Drop it! It goes nowhere but to distract. Obama's status is plainly about to come to a close now. Who cares???

Yes TM, but Trump DID drop it and didn't bring it up. The Propagandists did, and THEY won't drop it! Did you see Martha Radditz with Mike Pence? Rabid Dog!

What should Trump do now that they won't stop beating the dead horse? Stop all interviews? I actually like that idea, who needs the jerks?

But isn't it time to start with the commercials already? Only 6 weeks left.

I'm waiting...waiting...

That nicely summarizes the Clinton's modus operandi .. and may explain why so many close associated die under mysterious circumstances.

There is a way of attacking these type of stories without making them about yourself.

For example Trump should be pointing out that the "environment" for these birther theories was created by the Big O when he failed to release his records. Their release should be part of the application process. This was the first time, Cruz was the second, there will be others. When someone wants to become President they should be required to jump the citizenship hurdle first!

Proof of citizenship and eligibility to run, should be part of the *application process*! Here Obama's been President for 7 1/2 years and the controversy lives with doubts??? Dumb!!!

It's entirely reasonable to require that every candidate show proof of citizenship from the outset...I agree!
