Hillary Clinton’s campaign said that she will definitely not apologize to Donald Trump for falsely smearing him as an Islamic State recruiting puppet.
“Hell no. Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” said Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon.
But Trump has never been featured in an ISIS recruiting video, as Clinton alleged during Saturday night’s disastrous Democratic debate in New Hampshire.
Even The Huffington Post conceded that Clinton fudged the truth with the remark. As Breitbart News reported, Bill Clinton is actually featured in a recent ISIS recruiting video alongside Presidents Obama and George W. Bush, but with no Trump.
Actually, the ISIS terrorist group stated its opposition, in that video, to American rights for homosexuals, which Clinton supports.
Trump blasted Clinton as a “liar” in a Sunday show interview on Meet The Press.
“Nobody has been able to back that up. It’s nonsense. Just another Hillary lie,” Trump said. “She lies like crazy about everything. Whether it’s trips where she was being gunned down in a helicopter or an airplane, she’s a liar and everybody knows that. But she just made this up in thin air.”
Clinton campaign communications director Jen Palmieri struggled to explain what, exactly, Clinton meant.
“Well what they have said is that they are using him, they, he is being used in social media by ISIS as propaganda,” Palmieri told interviewer George Stephanopoulos Sunday.
“She didn’t have a particular video in mind but he’s being used in social media, um, and uh, you know, what they haven’t found is, this group hasn’t found the video Mr. Trump keeps talking about this alleged mystery video of thousands of people in [New] Jersey cheering, uh, collapse of the World Trade Center,” Palmieri added.
