• Trump: Hillary Clinton Is The ‘Original Birther’

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is the “original birther” in reference to her 2008 primary campaign against then-Sen. Barack Obama.

    Trump pointed out that Clinton staffers circulated a picture of Obama in Kenya in 2006, wearing traditional Somali clothing and a turban Wednesday in North Charleston, SC at a meeting of the South Carolina African-American Chamber of Commerce.

    He called the Clinton “shrill” and added, “She was saying—oh what I said about Obama—and yet in 2008 she was the original birther. She is the one that started that whole thing. By the way, don’t switch your votes to Hillary. But Hillary is the one that started it. Check it out 2008.”

    “So Hillary started it and then she acted so indignant,” he continued. “Give me a break.”

    Clinton denied being a part of the speculations about Obama’s birthplace during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” Wednesday and called the rumors “ludicrous.” She also denied having been confronted by Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign about it.
