• Awkward Truth About Obama-Muslim Rumors: ‘It All Started With’ Hillary Clinton

    The Monday panel of MSNBC’s Morning Joe stated Hillary Clinton created the rumors about President Obama being a Muslim and slammed the Democratic presidential candidate for having the audacity to attack Donald Trump for playing into the Obama-as-a-Muslim rumors she started.

    “It was rich this weekend…for Hillary Clinton to come out and criticize anybody for spreading the rumors about Barack Obama when it all started with her, and her campaign, passing things around in the Democratic primary, rich,” host Joe Scarborough said. “Now listen, the Republicans are wrong for doing what they’re doing. It started, this started with Hillary Clinton and it was spread by the Clinton team.”

    Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed and noted that the rumors started with Clinton’s interview on the CBS “60 Minutes” program.

    “We’re just telling the truth,” Brzezinski stated.

    Democratic panelist Harold Ford Jr. contested their assertion, saying there wasn’t any evidence for that claim.

    “I don’t recall that,”Ford said. “But if you’re telling me that was the case, I just don’t recall.”

    “I’m affirming the Scarborough-Brzezinski assertion,” Steve Heilemann, author of the insider account of the 2008 election Game Change, stated. “It was the case.”
