[Ed. – True, and it goes to tone again. Are we obsessing over things that don’t matter, at a time when the country faces a grave emergency? Trump fans would say yes. Maybe it would be better, on balance, for Trump to “correct” his questioners who say non-factual things about Obama. But is that what matters?]
The Leader of the Free World doesn’t need Donald Trump to have his back, the billionaire developer said in a Twitter blast Saturday.
“Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don’t think so!,” Trump wrote, referring to his refusal to correct a man who called President Obama a Muslim at a campaign event Thursday.
“This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something,” he added. “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!”
