Trump Asked to Take Back Calling Obama “Founder of ISIS,” His Response Sparks ‘Outrage’ from Hillary

By now you might have seen that Donald Trump called President Obama the “founder of ISIS,” resetting the clock of “days since Trump angered media with wild statement” to zero.

Some people rushed to Trump’s defense, pointing out that he might have meant that Obama is responsible for the rise of ISIS, rather than literally founding the group. As president, Obama completed the troop drawdown in Iraq that began under President George W. Bush.

The absence of American troops in the region, coupled with civil war in Syria, led to the power of ISIS.

So when Trump went on the “Hugh Hewitt Show” on Thursday, politicos were watching to see if he’d take any of it back, or take a chance to clarify his statement.

Spoiler: nope.

As transcribed by Mediaite:

HH: I’ve got two more questions. Last night, you said the President was the founder of ISIS. I know what you meant. You meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace.

DT: No, I meant he’s the founder of ISIS. I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton.

HH: But he’s not sympathetic to them. He hates them. He’s trying to kill them.

DT: I don’t care. He was the founder. His, the way he got out of Iraq was that that was the founding of ISIS, okay?

HH: Well, that, you know, I have a saying, Donald Trump, the pneumonic device I use is Every Liberal Really Seems So, So Sad. E is for Egypt, L is for Libya, S is for Syria, R is for Russia reset. They screwed everything up. You don’t get any argument from me. But by using the term founder, they’re hitting with you on this again. Mistake?

DT: No, it’s no mistake. Everyone’s liking it. I think they’re liking it. I give him the most valuable player award. And I give it to him, and I give it to, I gave the co-founder to Hillary. I don’t know if you heard that.

HH: I did. I did. I played it.

DT: I gave her the co-founder.

Oh, and he provoked a response from Hillary:

Well there you have it.
