Who could have predicted that presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump would use the terror attack in Orlando to make incendiary, fact-free statements?
Well, just about everyone did. But Trump still sank to a new on Monday morning by implying Obama may secretly be in favor of terrorist attacks on American citizens.
“He doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other,” Trump said of Obama’s approach to terrorism on Fox & Friends Monday. “And either one is unacceptable.”
Trump went on to imply that Obama has “got something else in mind” when it comes to stopping terrorist attacks, as evidenced by the fact that he won’t say the words “radical Islamic terrorism,” which would apparently be a more effective way to stop terrorists than preventing them from getting guns.
“We’re led by a man who is a very look, we’re led by a man that either is, is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” Trump said. “And the something else in mind, you know, people can’t believe it. People cannot they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can’t even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism. There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable.”
How long until Trump implies that Obama is a foreign agent who falsified his birth certificate? At this rate, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him say it during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.
