Former President Bill Clinton appeared on GMA this morning and lambasted the birther movement that has enjoyed a shot in the arm ever since Donald Trump started making his presidential rounds a few weeks back.
“I think [Obama] will fight back, I think one of the elementary rules of combat is you don’t want to get in your opponent’s way if he’s shooting himself in the foot ….The economy will be better…If I were them, I’d be really careful riding that birther horse too much. Everyone knows it’s ludicrous.”
Clinton also goes out of his way to point out that “ever since Hilary became Secretary of State” he goes out of his way not to get the security briefings former presidents are entitled to, so that people should know he’s just speaking his mind.
