Scarborough: Trump Has to Say Obama Born in U.S.

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough reacted to a question GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump fielded about President Barack Obama being a Muslim at a rally in New Hampshire the night before.

Scarborough likened to one of his experiences, but said ultimately Trump would have say the president was born in the United States.

“When I saw this last night, it reminded me of a book event down at Union Square and somebody immediately got up and he said, ‘George W. Bush is a war criminal, he killed 3,000 people,'” Scarborough said. “And then they go through the whole 9/11 truther thing and I just said, ‘Listen,’ — first of all, I did almost the same exact thing as Trump did, what did he say, ‘We really need this question. Boy I really know how to pick them.’ And everybody laughs. I let the guy do it. And then instead of fighting somebody at the beginning of my book event, I was like, ‘Listen, there’s no evidence of that. Next question.’ And then I move on.”

“When I saw Trump last night, I was thinking if he didn’t have the birther background, I would have been perfectly fine with that response,” he continued. “Because when crazies say something about George W. Bush killed 3,000 people and … when I got a hundred other people that want to ask questions — I’m not going to get in a debate about whether George W. Bush killed 3,000 because on its face, it is so ridiculous. But I think in this case, Mark Halperin, Donald Trump is going to have to get out there and say ‘Barack Obama, born in the U.S.A.”
