Terror Group Uses Donald Trump for Recruitment, Right Wingers Blame Hillary (Of Course)
Here they go again, folks! With the news that terror group al-Shabaab has released a recruitment video featuring Donald Trump’s statements calling for the banning of Muslims from the US, the right wing media are completely losing their shit.
For example, wingnut genius Jim Hoft (aka the Stupidest Man On The Internet), who reacts by blurting:
Maybe the Hillary camp funneled them some cash?
And then there’s Breitbart “News,” where they seem certain that al-Shabaab would never have thought of using Donald Trump’s bigotry to recruit terrorists if only Hillary Clinton hadn’t mentioned it! After The Trump Terror Vid, Can We Start Calling Her ‘Al Shabaab Media Advisor Hillary Clinton’?
Given the fact that Breitbart “News” and Donald Trump are joined at the hip, I think we can predict this is also going to be Trump’s spin. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous or stupid it is; his knuckle-dragging followers will take that ball and run with it.
On Twitter, this is the most hilarious reaction I’ve seen so far:
That’s right, some of Trump’s followers are trying to spread a conspiracy theory that the al-Shabaab video was “doctored” — because Anwar al-Awlaki is dead. And we all know dead people can’t possibly appear in video clips; when they die, all video of them dies too.
Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen actually suggested on Twitter that Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin instructed al-Shabaab to put Trump in the video. Yowza.
