Audience member: We have a problem in this country — it’s called “Muslims.” We know our current President is one.
Audience member: You know he’s not even an American. Birth certificate, man!
Trump: We need this question!
Audience member: But anyway [laughter], we have training camps growing, where they want to kill us.
Trump: Mm hmm.
Audience member: That’s my question. When can we get rid of ‘em?
Trump: We’re gonna be looking at a lot of different things. And you know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We’re gonna be looking at that and plenty of other things.
Holy crap! It looks like Trump is still convinced that Obama is secretly a Muslim who does not have a valid American birth certificate, and is allowing secret Muslim training camps to be built in this country for the purpose of training terrorists to kill Americans.
And his supporters are the same knuckle dragging dipshits who applauded his efforts to "prove" Obama had no valid birth certificate back in 2012.
Of course the Trump camp made a rather pathetic attempt at damage control.
Okay, what?Trump camp: "Mr. Trump was referring to the need to protect Christians religious liberties as his previous statement says and nothing more."— Kailani Koenig (@kailanikm) September 18, 2015
Once again, what?Now NEW response: "To be clear, Mr. Trump's response to the question regarding training camps in this country was we will look into it."— Kailani Koenig (@kailanikm) September 18, 2015
Of course this whole thing is being compared to John McCain's 2008 town hall response to a woman who claimed that Obama was an "Arab."
Yet here we are in 2015 and Donald Trump is at the top of the polls.
That tells you something both interesting and very frightening about today's Republican party.
