It is impossible to overstate the level of hypocrisy emanating from Hillary Clinton when it comes to the latest birther controversy.
In an effort to divert eyes and minds from Clinton’s sagging poll numbers and troubling health matters, leftists in her campaign and the media have been pushing an old ‘birther’ controversy. A controversy they claim began with Donald Trump.
The Democrat presidential candidate herself even had the hubris to demand an apology from Trump.
“Barack Obama was born in America, plain and simple,” she railed. “And Donald Trump owes him and the American people an apology.”
Clinton even went so far as to claim Trump’s ‘birther’ claims were based on racism.
“For five years, he has led the birther movement to delegitimize our first black president,” she claimed. “His campaign was founded on this outrageous lie.”
“There is no erasing it in history,” Clinton added.
Unfortunately for her, there is no erasing it from her history.
Hillary Clinton is the founder of the movement that questioned Barack Obama’s birthplace. She can practically be referred to as the mother of the birther movement.
The following is a list of 7 times that Hillary Clinton – not Donald Trump – was shown to have started the Obama birther controversy…
Penn Strategy Memo
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Meet Mark Penn, chief political strategist for Hillary’s unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008. A strategy memo released by Penn in March of 2007 contains the following statement: “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.”
Penn would later suggest that the Clinton camp target Senator Obama’s “lack of American roots.”
You can view a portion of that memo and see exactly how Hillary’s campaign team plotted to expose Obama’s ‘lack of American roots’ below.
