Obama and Clinton were both at Reagan National Airport on their way to Iowa for a  debate, and the candidates met on the tarmac for what became a brief but heated conversation. Then-Obama personal aide Reggie Love witnessed the event and describes it in his new memoir: [Obama] very respectfully told her the apology was kind, but largely meaningless, given the emails it was rumored her camp had been sending out labeling him as a Muslim. Before he could finish his sentence, she exploded on Obama. In a matter of seconds, she went from composed to furious. It had not been Obama’s intention to upset her, but he wasn’t going to play the fool either.

More Trump lies and distortions by his lying followers who are being led straight to hell
Trump is allergic to truth.
Trump will be everything and more of the worst presidents we have ever had.
Trump will do a Watergate like Nixon, an Iran contra like Reagan, a Vietnam War like Johnson, and a Viagra fueled sex romp like Clinton.
The worst--Trump might start a civil war

Not all, that would be an unfair assumption but to deny that racism played a part in this would be ignorant. And yes, Trump was the leader of the Birther movement and indeed the KKK, white supremacist, follow his lead today.

What difference, at this point, does it make where Obama was born?
It doesn't, really. It never did. Because he was born in the US.
On the other hand, Trump's ongoing refusal to realize it (or admit it, until this morning). Why did he wait so long if it was he who made Obama provide his birth certificate (as he claims)? He seemed to think it was a very big deal, even after the birth certificate was released. He never managed to come out and say it was nonsense, until this morning. Or was that just politics? Is he just another politician? Doing what is expedient?
It is certainly interesting, and perhaps historically and politically relevant, that “birther” advocacy may have originated with supporters of Hillary Clinton — especially since many view it as an exclusively right-wing movement. But whether those theories were advocated by Clinton and/or her campaign or simply by Clinton “supporters” is an important distinction.
"I never was mad at Sen. Obama," the former president said. "I think everybody's got a right to run for president who qualifies under the Constitution. And I'd be the last person to begrudge anybody their ambition."

I hate Trump. But I do remember Clinton or her minions floating this in 2008. Coded language, dog whistles. The knife cuts both ways...
