Media outlets including CNN and Politifact appear apoplectic that Donald Trump called President Barack Obama the founder of ISIS, fact checking him in on-camera chyrons and giving him a “pants on fire” rating for his comment.
An exasperated Trump pointed out that he was being sarcastic, ridiculing the media for taking his comment literally.
“Ratings challenged CNN reports so seriously that I call President Obama (and Clinton) “the founder” of ISIS, & MVP,” Trump wrote earlier today on Twitter. “THEY DON’T GET SARCASM?”
But news organizations like CNN and Politifact didn’t fact check Hillary Clinton after she called Donald Trump the “recruiting sergeant” of ISIS back in April.
“I think it was said just this week that the way Donald Trump talks about terrorism and his very insulting language towards Muslims is making him the recruiting sergeant for ISIS,” Clinton said.
Breitbart News is willing to do the hard work that CNN and Politifact will not. Donald Trump is not the recruiting sergeant of ISIS. Hillary Clinton deserves a big league Pinocchio PantSuits On Fire for her statement in April and we demand that she clarify her position immediately.
