Donald Trump On Profiling: 'I Never Said Muslims'

Donald Trump tells Bill O'Reilly "we must profile," but he's not "saying" profile Muslims. Shhhh. But we have to profile somebody.
Views:

Donald Trump has openly supported the profiling of Muslims and putting Mosques under surveillance, but when Bill O'Reilly asked him Monday night, if his plans would turn off "peaceful Muslims," Trump replied, "I never said that they were Muslims."

Say, what? Who was he talking about then?

Trump continued, "You did. You told me Muslims. I didn't say that. I am saying, you go into profile, people that maybe look suspicious. I didn't say they were Muslims."

O'Reilly was kind of dumbfounded and asked, "But how do they look suspicious? I mean, how?"

Exactly! That's one of the many fault lines when law enforcement profiles minorities.

Trump's next answer was as idiotic as his plans.

He said, "I don't know. These are experts. That's what they do. They profile."

Are these the same experts that uncovered very damning information about President Obama's birth certificate in Hawaii?

BIllO continued, "But it's almost 100 percent of the terrorism now is Muslim fanatics, almost 100 percent. You are not going to be profiling leather jackets who, you know, with blue eyes at this point."

Trump flippantly answered, "Honestly whatever it is. But I'm not using the term Muslim, I am saying, you're going to have to profile."

Trump said he doesn't know, but others do, but he's sure "we have to profile."

This is the kind of lunacy Trump spews on Fox News almost everyday.
