Donald Trump Defends His Latest Islamophobic Remarks

At an event on Thursday evening, an attendee asked Trump: “we have problem in this country. It’s called Muslims,” and then proceeded to allege that President Obama was one. The crazy dude then went on to say that the US has “training camps growing where they want to kill us. When can we get rid of them?”

Trump’s response? A consistent head-nod throughout the man’s tirade and then commenting that: “A lot of people are saying that” and, he would be “looking at that.”

When called out on his egregious display of ignorance by White House staff and the media, Trump had been silent until Saturday when he responded with several tweets that he then pinned to the top of his Twitter page. Wow.

I mean look, it’s one thing if you’re an entertainer who says ignorant things, but it’s entirely another thing if you’re trying to become a leader of the free world.

We expect more from people running for office of the President of the United States.
