bwahahaha. Donald Trump: I meant that Obama founded ISIS, literally

Donny Demento literally doesn't know what the word literally means.



Donald Trump said Thursday that he meant exactly what he said when he called President Barack Obama the "founder of ISIS" and objected when a conservative radio show host tried to clarify the GOP nominee's position.

Trump was asked by host Hugh Hewitt about the comments Trump made Wednesday night in Florida, and Hewitt said he understood Trump to mean "that he (Obama) created the vacuum, he lost the peace."

Trump objected.

"No, I meant he's the founder of ISIS," Trump said. "I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton."

Hewitt pushed back again, saying that Obama is "not sympathetic" to ISIS and "hates" and is "trying to kill them."

"I don't care," Trump said, according to a show transcript. "He was the founder. His, the way he got out of Iraq was that that was the founding of ISIS, okay?"

Okay, Donny Demento.

1. Translation:

"The largest portion of my dwindling base are racist white supremacists, so I am going to say something that's they all believe: all the world's problems stem from black men."

29. The media just needs to ignore these statements...

By giving known posturing hyperbole media attention is giving trumpy free advertising time while NEVER addressing essential issues. We are cheated of gaining needed critical understanding of where this candidate actually stands on policy. Media failures!

3. Well, to be fair I googled ISIS....

.....and found out that its official name was "The Barack Obama ISIS and 19th Century English Literature Book Club."

I didn't know they were such a fan of Dickens and Hardy.

Hey didn't they do a zombie Pride and Prejudice movie?

It's the lead story on Google News right now.

Trump escalates claim that Obama founded ISIL

And he gives Clinton credit for being the terrorist group's co-founder.

7. Hmmm...is he going to go full birther again to justify his insane claim?

Wasn't the percentage of Trump voters who believe Obama is Muslim and isn't an America-born citizen around 80%? His acolytes will be SO happy!

9. So there are some things he really means and some he really doesn't.




Like he was so misunderstood when he suggested offing HRC.
I guess he means everything he says until he denies saying it.

But he couldn't keep Trump from digging that hole a little deeper.

26. Something I really don't understand.

I don't remember Iraq having a time of peace at all for a long time.

And from what I remember, Bush** was warned about creating the very conditions that would end up in an ISIS type situation if he went ahead and started the Iraq invasion. That was before President Obama. Seriously, am I just remembering wrong on this? I just don't know.

28. It's good that this was such a definite answer

The radio host did everything he could to get Trump out of this controversy. But no, his ego prevented him from admitting being wrong.
Now, he claims it was just sarcasm which makes no sense given this definite clarification of what he meant.
