Well, you knew Donald Trump would have some choice ripostes to those who attacked his silence when a town hall attendee asserted America has a “Muslim problem” and said Obama was a Muslim.(Although, as we reported yesterday, Hillary Clinton appeared to have similar questions not that long ago…but that’s a different story — but here’s the video anyway).
So today, The Donald was in fine form on Twitter with some comments of his own. Enjoy.
