Trump Now Says The 'Founder Of ISIS' Comment Was A Big Joke

Trump tried to make believe that when he called President Obama the founder of ISIS, he was just being sarcastic.
Trump Now Says The 'Founder Of ISIS' Comment Was A Big Joke

After Donald Trump delivered an economic speech on Monday, many Republicans had hoped this had signaled the real reboot of Donald's campaign after so many cracks in the road.

It didn't...

In a matter of seconds he had made a terrible decision to threaten Hillary Clinton by signaling the 2A people might do something to stop his rival from picking liberal judges.

Then a day later he came up with a new offensive way to attack the leaders of the Democratic party.

"[Obama] was the founder of ISIS absolutely, the way he removed our troops. ... I call them co-founders," he added, referring to his Democratic presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton.

When he had a chance to back off these despicable allegations, he refused and only tripled down on them.

HH: I’ve got two more questions. Last night, you said the President was the founder of ISIS. I know what you meant. You meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace.

DT: No, I meant he’s the founder of ISIS. I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton.

DT: No, it’s no mistake. Everyone’s liking it. I think they’re liking it. I give him the most valuable player award. And I give it to him, and I give it to, I gave the co-founder to Hillary. I don’t know if you heard that.

Then the calendar turns to Friday and he's tweeting a different song.

Donald had many, many, many chances to say he was only kidding, 'just throwing red meat to his rallygoers,' but he refused. Even Hugh Hewitt couldn't get him to speak like a politician instead of Michael Savage, but he refused, again.

This is typical Donald Trump behavior. Make some outrageously false and embarrassing comment - get heat -then make believe it was a joke.

Now we get to see Jeffrey Lord and Katrina Pierson spin like tops and make believe he was just kidding the entire time.
