CNN's Dana Bash: Hillary Clinton Associates Said Obama Was A Muslim, Went To A Muslim School


JAKE TAPPER, CNN: Donald Trump reminds us that some of these "Obama-is-a-Muslim" rumors were started by people who were supporting or working for Hillary Clinton in 2008.

DANA BASH, CNN: That's right. The Clinton campaign back then always adamantly denied that was true. But there were stories citing Clinton researchers or associates back then saying President Obama or then Barack Obama was a Muslim, even that he went to a Muslim school when he was a kid living in Indonesia.

In fact, I remember when CNN's John Voss went to Jakarta and it turned out the school never had any religious curriculum. Even Hillary Clinton herself sewed some doubt in 2008 saying she didn't think Obama was a muslim then, but she added "not that I know of." And being a Muslim and not believing one should be in the White House are very different. And that is today's controversy on the trail. Even in a campaign full of explosive comments, this one immediately stood out.
