trumpRepublican presidential candidate fired back Saturday over criticism that he didn’t correct a supporter who called Obama Muslim and not American.

“Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don’t think so!” Trump tweeted. “If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance!” Read more at CNN.

  1. I’m sure the CIA would have known if Obama was born outside the U.S. my personal feelings are that it says Muslim for his religion on his birth certificate and wants to hide it
    But Trump should’ve also answers so what if he’s a Muslim

  2. One thing we like to see in people is a sense of decency. By not objecting to a mischaracterization of President Obama, Donald Trump showed that he is lacking one. And if an Obama supporter called Trump a Klansman or the like publicly in Obama’s presence, I’d expect Obama to object and think less of him if he didn’t.

  3. It’s not so far out to call Hussein Obamanation a muslim he was a close disciple to a wacked out fiery imam by the name of Louis Farrakhan who spews hate and intolerance of everybody and everything #2 He’s become the biggest help for radical muslim crazies from Gaza to Iran and he never criticizes arabs regardless of how much terrorism and destruction they wreak

  4. This is a non-issue, people. Please let’s stop majoring in the minors.

    To the Editors of Matzav – you ought to use a more neutral photo of Trump. Everyone already knows he’s brash, so for you to use this photo makes you look like a Page Six.

  5. Trump shows yet again that not bending in to whiners is all it takes to defeat the paper tiger of political correctness. For this alone the guy deserves to be a president.
