Trump Tells Crowd His Obama ‘ISIS Founder’ Remarks Were Sarcastic, but ‘Not That Sarcastic’
Here we go again.
Just hours after saying he was using “sarcasm” when he called President Obama and Hillary Clinton the founders of ISIS, Donald Trump seems to be going right back to where he started at a rally in Pennsylvania Friday afternoon.
After drawing cheers from his Pennsylvania crowd by bringing those charges back up, Trump mocked the media for thinking the “ISIS founder” comments were serious after he repeated them as often as he had. After saying Obama was “weak” for allowing ISIS to gain power in the Middle East, Trump insisted that’s what he meant when he first called the president the Islamic State’s founder.
