Scarborough: The "Obama Is A Muslim" Rumor Originated With Hillary Clinton in 2008


On Monday's edition of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough addressed the return of the "Obama is a Muslim" quarrel. Last week, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump took a question from a man who said President Obama is a Muslim and a foreigner. Scarborough said it was "rich" that Hillary Clinton is denouncing Trump and the man's comments considering she is the one who started the rumors in the first place.

"It was raised this weekend, I guess we have to get our digs in on Hillary Clinton here, because I thought we were going to get through a segment without talking about her, Scarborough said Monday. "But for Hillary Clinton to come out and criticize anybody for spreading the rumors about Barack Obama [being a Muslim], when it all started with her and her campaign passings things around in the Democratic primary is rich."

"The Republicans are wrong for doing what they're doing," Scarborough said. "This started with Hillary Clinton and it was spread by the Clinton team back in 2008. That is the truth."
