Secretary Hillary Clinton and the Media Are Throwing Religious Trash at Donald Trump: How Pathetic!
What is President Obama’s religion: Christian or Muslim? Most Americans probably don’t give a damn; they’re just counting the days till he’s out of office. 43% of Republicans and roughly 20% of Americans think he’s a Muslim. It doesn’t matter what Americans think of the President’s religion. It’s a non-issue, except the media suddenly discovered it. Donald Trump had a so-so performance at the CNN debate Wednesday evening. The consensus view, albeit perhaps not the polls, say Carly Fiorina had a second great performance and Governor Christy and Senator Rubio, and perhaps Governor Bush, rose above the rest. The Donald appeared at a town house Thursday night in Rochester, New Hampshire. The first speaker started out by saying “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims.” He continued: “We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American.” Trump’s mortal sin apparently is that he did not promptly rebuke the speaker. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined the chorus. She is appalled, just appalled that Donald Trump has sanctioned the claim that the President is not a Christian. Oh what damnable hypocrisy on the part of Secretary Clinton. Her campaign started the Obama Birther Movement in a bid to destroy his campaign. Her staff sent a photo to the Politico in 2008. It was Senator Obama dressed as a Somali Elder when he visited a Somali village in 2005. Steve Kroft in an interview with then Senator Clinton asked her if she thought Senator Obama was a Muslim. She responded: “No, there is nothing to base that on, As far as I know.” “As far as I know.” Secretary Clinton proves once again that she will say or do almost anything to win the election. Her problem is that words and actions last forever in the internet. Her deleted emails are already demining her campaign. Senator Obama added fuel on the fire in a September 8, 2008 interview with George Stephanopoulos on This Week. He responded to a question: “Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting – you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith …” “My Muslim faith.” Was that a Freudian slip or just the occasional misstatement of candidates on the stump? Is this President a Christian? He worshiped in the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago for 20 years, during which the anti- Semitic Reverend preached anti-American sermons. His first infamous sermon was about 9/11: “America’s chickens have come home to roost.” His second said: “No, no, no, not God Bless America, but God damn America.” Senator Obama initially denied ever hearing during 20 years sitting in the pews during Reverend Wright’s sermons of hearing any of this, but subsequently threw the Reverend under the political bus. No doubt exists about the Clintons’ religious beliefs. An amazing religious sight occurred on Sundays when President Clinton was immersed in one of his many scandals. He was always shown holding onto Hillary in one hand and clutching the Bible in the other. The media and Secretary Clinton are hurling fire and brimstone at Donald Trump for not damning the speaker at his townhouse in an effort to destroy him. The problem for them is that the more they dump on the Donald, the more popular support he receives. Republicans and to a lesser extent Independents and Democrats hold the mainstream media in contempt. What are they thinking? If Donald trump's outrageous statements have not sunk his campaign, then how can failure to speak be damaging? They are reviving a slipping campaign.
