Burnett Confronts Trump Campaign Manager Over Elevating False Attack on Rubio Eligibility

burnett coreyCNN’s Erin Burnett confronted Donald Trump tonight about Trump elevating questions about Marco Rubio‘s eligibility to be president, even though he was born in Miami.

Trump totally swore yesterday he has no idea if Rubio’s eligible, even though Trump himself has previously said it’s a non-issue.

The key here is Trump’s retweet the previous day of someone raising that question. Lewandowski told Burnett tonight that just because The Donald RT’d it doesn’t mean he agrees with it, saying at one point, “you guys complain if he retweets, something you complain if he tweets.”

Burnett shot back that RTing it in the first place lends it credibility. Lewandoski brushed it off.

When asked directly about Rubio’s eligibility (again, he was born in Miami), Lewandoski said, “I haven’t looked at the issue.”
