Trump Averages Almost Two Obama Mentions Per Day


CNN: “Trump has been lambasting Obama for years, even before he ran for the top job. Recently, though he’s been doing it more often.

Obama: Don’t Blame me for GOP Crackup!

I don’t think that I was the one to prompt questions about my birth certificate, for example. I don’t remember saying, ‘Hey, why don’t you ask me about that. Or why don’t you question whether I’m American, or whether I’m loyal, or whether I have America’s best interests at heart’ — those aren’t things that were prompted by any actions of mine. And so what you’re seeing within the Republican Party is, to some degree, all those efforts over a course of time creating an environment where somebody like a Donald Trump can thrive. He’s just doing more of what has been done for the last seven and a half years.

Bachmann: Obama Set on Destroying the World
