I've disagreed with some of the tone and language he's used, but agree with a lot of what he has gone after, in terms of illegal immigration and the politics as usual in DC. And, I don't like how the GOP establishment "good ole boys" want to run him out of the race.
But this latest media bruhaha over Trump not defending Richard Milhous Hussein-Obama after a questioner at a Trump rally called Obama a Muslim is utterly ridiculous (Fox News).
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday defended his recent decision not to challenge a rally attendee's claim that President Obama is a Muslim and "not even an American," suggesting that defending the president is not his moral obligation.
"Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don't think so!" Trump said in series of tweets Saturday morning.
Trump critics -- including fellow GOP White House candidate South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham -- have tried to use the exchange at the New Hampshire event Thursday night to knock back the GOP presidential front-runner and billionaire businessman.
"I was appalled,” said front-running Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
...On Saturday, the bombastic Trump also tweeted: "This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something."
His next tweet was: "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!"
He also argued the media would have accused him of interfering with the man's right of free speech, tweeting “a no win situation!"
The exchange is also being compared to what 2008 GOP presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain did when a woman at town hall meeting called Obama "an Arab."
"No ma'am," McCain said. "He's a decent family man citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues."And that's why McLame lost! He had no heart in it, and wanted to be Mr. Bipartisan. McLame told us we had nothing to fear about Obama becoming President, and look at what has happened to this nation seven years later! Of course, McLame's girlfriend, Lindsey Graham, is willing to attack Trump instead of Obama or liberals.
If you need proof that Yeb! Bush is just like McLame, a loser (Washington ComPost).
"Barack Obama is a talented man -- and by the way he's an American, he's a Christian -- his problem isn't the fact that he was born here or what his faith is," said Bush in a speech here. "His problem is that he's a progressive liberal who tears down anybody that disagrees with him."Yeb also claimed we need more civility, yet he allegedly called Trump a "buffon," a "clown" and an "@$$hole." Civility? Yeah right, blow it out your pants, Yeb! I don't think anyone who goes to a racist "church" where the "preacher" uses the Lord's name in vain from the pulpit is a Christian. So quit sounding like Mr. Rodgers.
Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz refused to play the media pile on, with Santorum giving the best rebuttal.
"The President can defend himself. He doesn't need Rick Santorum to defend him. He's got you doing that very, very well. So cut it out."There's so much hypocrisy here it isn't funny.
Hillary wants to attack Trump over this, yet it was her campaign that spread not just the Obama is a Muslim rumor, but the birther allegations.
These photos also made appearances during his run for the Presidency.
Personally, I fall where David Beamer, the father of 9/11 United 93 hero Todd Beamer once stated in the video below.
"I don't know if Obama is a Muslim or not. But he sure is a Muslim sympathizer. And he has the track record to prove it. So do you think there's a correlation as to why they think 'let's do it now'" (build the 9/11 victory mosque)Isn't that why a lot of people have questions about Obama's "faith" (if he even has one)? I mean, he goes to every length to say we are not at war with Islam, he refuses to call ISIS "Islamic," and he will make a nuclear agreement with the biggest funder of Islamofascist terror, the Islamic Regime of Iran, while refusing to acknowledge they are a terrorist state.
Obama won't meet with the families of fallen police officers, but will invite a Muslim teenager who built what was suspected to be a bomb, in an incident that has caused controversy and raised a lot of questions as to the people involved in it.
Yet Obama will mock other religions. There's allegations that Obama has used anti-Semitism in defending his Iran deal. The LA Slimes has refused to release a video of a farewell dinner Obama attended for a former PLO mouthpiece Rashid Khalidi.
Then, there's Obama's attacks on Christianity.
