How A Non-Story Became A Story About Trump And Muslims

 

Trump & Muslim issue

New Hampshire (Storch Report) — Nothing demonstrates how the left wing media drives a story than a question asked yesterday at a Trump town hall meeting in New Hampshire — that the Donald didn’t refute or comment upon — stating that Obama is a Muslim and that there are training cells of Islam terrorists in the US.

Trump gave the question a pass.  And today he is being vilified for what he didn’t say, rather than for what he did say.  It is an interesting juxtaposition of issues, that have, and will continue to plague, the Donald.

Trump has yet to say what he now must say about the issue which has been created by the left and joined by the right-wing media.

However, it is important to note that the Donald was once a ‘birther’ questioning the origin of the birth of Obama, whether he should be president of the United States because he was not born in the US.  

But at the time he wasn’t the only one questioning the origin of the president’s birth, but now he is running for the president of the United States and it is fair game as a result of his past comments.

And so once again the Teflon Don, who steps on mines and walks away, must once again clean up for himself after the fact for what he didn’t say, rather than for what he said.

It is a classic. If you have the power of the pen and you are out to get someone, you can do so, even if your motivation to do so is journalistic and not political, but perhaps, driven by others that have the motives to not let a good crisis go to waste.

    But is it not true that the mantra of American politics is “You are damned if you do, and you are damned if you don’t”.
    Do you not worry that Ted Cruz=Perfect may just run into a “birther” issue. After all Canada is a neighbor but not the US. Does the current definition for US citizen for president mean born on US soil. Or and application for citizenship via the US embassy to Register as a child born abroad of a US citizen. Those children all have birth certificates of the nation they were born in and a request granting them citizenship. There are millions of Americans that were granted citizenship via different applications. None hold a US birth certificate. I know my birth certificate is German signed by the doctor and German authorities. My American citizenship was granted as an infant born abroad to an American citizen. Is that the same thing as being born on US soil. Will it be an issue?

    Your opening comment is right on. My comment about Ted Cruz was satire, this is the way he perceives himself.
    From my perspective with respect to your citizenship, it is no different than mine. I was born in the US, you were born abroad of an American citizen. I always thought that those born outside of the US, although citizens, were not eligible to be a President of the US. This seems to be somewhat in dispute today. Unless you want to be President of the US, I don’t believe there is any issue, if you do, then you had better seek other advice than mine. As for me, I have no interest in that office and never have.

    No, being part of a college faculty is plenty political for me.
