Hillary Calls Trump Original ‘Birther’, But Her Campaign Actually Started It In 2008

Video Transcript:

Hillary Clinton on Thursday again lied by blaming Trump for the Obama birthers.

CLINTON: And let’s not forget that Trump first gained political prominence leading the charge for the so-called “birthers.” He promoted the racist lie that President Obama is not really an American citizen. Part of a sustained effort to delegitimize America’s first black president.

Awkwardly enough, it was Hillary’s campaign that started this rumor in 2008 by hinting he may be a Muslim by circulating this photo.

Then in March of 2008, during 60 Minutes, Mrs. Clinton would not say he was not a Muslim.

STEVE KROFT: You don’t believe that Senator Obama’s a Muslim?

CLINTON: Of course not. I mean, that’s, you know, there is no basis for that. You know, I take him on the basis of what he says. And you know, there isn’t any reason to doubt that.

KROFT: You said you’d take Senator Obama at his word that he’s not a Muslim. You don’t believe that he’s not a Muslim?

CLINTON: No. No, there is nothing to base that on, as far as I know.

To make matters worse, even the liberal MSNBC last year argued that her campaign started the rumor.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: For Hillary Clinton to come out and criticize anybody for spreading the rumors about Barack Obama when it all started…

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: On 60 Minutes.

SCARBOROUGH: It all started with her and her campaign passing things around in the Democratic primary – rich. It started, this started with Hillary Clinton and it was spread by the Clinton team.

BRZEZINSKI: We’re just telling the truth.

HAROLD FORD: I don’t recall that but if you’re telling me that was the case, I just don’t recall.

JOHN HEILEMANN: It was the case.

SCARBOROUGH: It was the case. Thank you John Heilemann.
