Trump completely tricked the media on Friday. One newscaster, Jake Tapper, said that Trump had “Rickrolled” them, “we just got played. We just got played.” This all started when Trump announced he was going to spend a lot of time talking about whether or not Obama was really born in America.
Naturally the liberal media got excited about this. They were excited at another chance to make Trump look bad, or crazy. The media gathered in anticipation for his speech. The actual speech was not what they were expecting.
The majority of the speech was veterans endorsing Trump. Trump went onto say that veteran’s were not ‘deplorables’ like Hillary thinks they are. Trump finally got to the part about Obama’s birth certificate. “Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy, I finished it. President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again,” said Trump.
He then left the stage not taking any questions. The media gave Trump a lot of air time and they were pissed. Isn’t this amazing? Check out the video below.
