Clinton’s statement about Trump video is laughable

In the recent Democrat Party debate, Hillary Clinton stated that ISIS/ISIL is using the videos of Donald Trump stating he would ban Muslims from entering the United States to get others to join their jihad. This was later proved to be totally false. She must think we are fools.

First of all, if all it takes is a video of a bombastic American to recruit fellow Muslims to join a terrorist group, then we are in deep trouble and it shows the weakness in their religion. Also, perhaps she doesn’t realize that most folks in the Middle East do not speak or read English and surely these alleged videos would have subtitles which would allow his words to be wildly exaggerated or made more inflammatory.

This is the same Hillary Clinton that told us an anti-Islam video, “The Innocence of Muslims” was the reason for the Benghazi attack but hardly anyone saw this video and the originator was arrested on a federal parole violation and was imprisoned for a year. In fact the video was posted months before the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012 but was taken down shortly thereafter by You Tube.
