‘Morning Joe’ Rips Clinton’s Hypocrisy on Obama-Muslim Rumors: ‘It All Started With Her’
MSNBC’s Morning Joe panelists said Monday that Hillary Clinton was hypocritical in her denunciation of Donald Trump for not dismissing a supporter’s claim that President Obama is a Muslim, given that rumor’s origins with her failed 2008 presidential campaign.
Clinton’s team was sharply criticized in 2008 for circulating a photo of Obama, a Christian, on a diplomatic trip to Kenya adorned in a turban, and Slate reported Clinton asked two staffers to resign in December 2007 for passing along the false rumors. Also, Clinton infamously hedged when asked about the issue on 60 Minutes, saying there was no basis to believe Obama was a Muslim “as far as I know.”
