Nope.

Fired ex-Clinton-staffer "started it."

Trump took it mainstream.

Nope.
Blumenthal, a top aide of Clinton, pushed the story to an editor, who then investigated.

So one of Clinton's senior campaign aides and advisors, along with some of her lower level campaign team, started it, and yes Trump took it further. It was mainstream before though, after the Obama campaign issued a statement calling out Clinton's tactics in 2008.

So how do you interpret that statement?


I don't even support Trump (John McAfee), and I interpret it as you completely grasping at straws. The man isn't insulting his voters, he is complimenting them.

The funniest thing of all is that this was so obviously a set up that backfired.

WaPo ask the question.
Hillary is ready to follow up.
The media are primed to try and make the birther issue a Trump hit piece.

I can visualise them all sitting round a table dreaming up the sequence of events.

Trump used it to get 20 minutes of endorsements from Generals and Admirals!

The irony here is that most of the posters in this thread have been more manipulated through this stunt than the media and here they are congratulating him for it!

Basket of gullibles?


so true

And the bigger Irony is that they are talking about Obama birther crap....

Hillary started it......and Trump put up his own money and resources to prove it was True years ago


Talk about gullible supporters

The only basket Hillary will see is the get-well basket sent to the hospital after her next medical episode.

Again, at this point, it makes no difference whether it's true or not, the damage has been done either way.

So it's a non-issue issue. I personally have stopped caring. One way or the other a precedent has been set and allowed and we're not putting the horse back into the barn.

Hillary supporters and media are just mad because they can't cover a Hillary press conference because she hasn't had one that wasn't scripted in 260+ days.

Come on now, she had one recently where she had to field tough questions like "What did you watch on TV whilst you were off ill". A really savage question there.

So so many lies in the OP. First off, the birther movement was not started by Clinton. This statement is patently false and has been debunked time and time again. Secondly, the media is pissed because they were tricked into running what was essentially an infomercial for Trump's new hotel. It shows that he is already willing to use political power for financial gain and he isn't even in office yet. If Hillary had done the same thing that Trump just did you guys would be apoplectic, and screaming from the highest mountain top about corruption and jail time.

It did come from the Clinton Camp but really who cares. Obama is not running.

a reply to: Sublimecraft Actually I believe the very first birther allegation came from Orly Taitz (strange no one seems to remember her). The movement was picked up by republicans and some disaffected Hillary supporters but the Hillary campaign NEVER supported or promoted the birther movement.

See my post below. "Clinton Supporters" =/= "Clinton Campaign". This was not a campaign initiated and supported movement.

My God... This quote comes DIRECTLY from the article you just linked to. Did you even read this?




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.

Orly Taitz was an Obama operative.

Somebody knew the real story and TPTB/Obama had to stop it with the massive effort we saw over the years.
