Donald Trump says President Barack Obama is the founder of ISIS, and Hillary Clinton is the co-founder, just one day after seemingly calling on “Second Amendment people” to assassinate her.Trump is defending his dog whistle to play to the fringe elements in the GOP who maintain that President Obama is a Muslim and a sympathizer of radical Islamists. That is a dirty, barefaced lie. Once again, he is trying to play to the birther crowd, but I believe most Americans — black, white, Latino and Asians — are aghast at the vitriol he is spewing as his campaign continues to meltdown.
“Isis is honoring President Obama,” Trump said of Islamic State. “He is the founder of Isis. He founded Isis. And, I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”
Trump’s declaration echoed an attack he made against Clinton last week, also in Florida, in which he said the former secretary of state “should get an award from them as the founder of Isis.” Source: ” The Guardian

Well, we all know Donald Trump is a pathological liar. Here is the truth about how ISIS came to be:
The origins of Isis trace back to the aftermath of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The group has been deemed an offshoot of al-Qaida, which carried out the attacks on 11 September 2001. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian militant terrorist viewed as the founder of Isis, was killed in a US airstrike in Baghdad in 2006.
Although Isis has expanded rapidly during Obama’s tenure, seizing in particular on the Syrian civil war, the administration has also made gains in its military campaign against the extremist group. US army Lieutenant General Sean MacFarland said on Wednesday an estimated 45,000 fighters linked to Isis had been killed in the two years since the US-led military coalition against the network was launched.
One has to ask what is Trump’s strategy to defeat ISIS? Oh, wait, he doesn’t have one. Just more empty rhetoric:
- He would carpet-bomb them out of existence, including women and children.
- He would have a temporary Muslim ban
- He would use the U.S. military like his personal kill team.
Trump’s comment about President Obama also comes as he assailed Hillary Clinton for having the father of Orlando shooting suspect Omar Mateen on the stage during her rally in Florida, while pedophile ex-Rep. Mark Foley sat behind him on the stage at his rally last night.
The hypocrisy is so thick. Mrs. Clinton did not know Mateen’s father was on the stage and has since repudiated his support. Um, Donald Trump on Mark Foley? No such disavowal.
I am pretty sure, that if the media actually does its job and calls Trump out for this vile rhetoric, that he will blame them for twisting his words, though he is on video making those comments.
As an African American, I can never vote for Trump because of his birtherism against Barack Obama. He seems to be resurrecting some elements of the birtherism in his juvenile and ridiculous assertion that he is the founder of ISIS because he’s a secret Muslim. The one-two percent of black support that Trump has now will drop into negative territory.
The latest Time magazine cover sums up the Trump campaign the best — meltdown. That means when we get to November 8, we will all have to collectively take the mother of all baths to scrub the stink of Donald Trump’s trainwreck of a campaign off our bodies.
