In a desperate effort to cover up their lie, the Donald Trump campaign put out a press release that provided proof that Hillary Clinton didn’t start the birther conspiracy.
This is the transcript of an interview that a Clinton advisor did with CNN that was released by the Trump campaign:
PATTI SOLIS DOYLE: There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe in late 2007, I think in December, one of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa. I don’t recall whether they an actual paid staffer, but they did forward an e-mail that promoted the conspiracy.
WOLF BLITZER: The birther conspiracy?
DOYLE: Yeah. Hillary made the decision immediately to let that person go. We let that person go.
The transcript shows that Hillary Clinton shot down the birther conspiracy. When a staffer forwarded an email that promoted the conspiracy, that Clinton staffer was fired.
In other words, Donald Trump just released proof that Hillary Clinton didn’t start the birther conspiracy as he claimed at his event earlier on Friday.
It is unfathomable, but it appears that the reemergence of Trump’s birtherism has caught his campaign by surprise. The memo and interview that they cited were proof that Hillary Clinton didn’t begin the birther conspiracy.
Donald Trump’s own campaign just proved that their candidate is a liar.
The Trump campaign appears gripped by chaos. They are desperate and looking for anything that will make Donald Trump’s birtherism go away, but all they did was verify that Hillary Clinton didn’t begin the birther conspiracy.
