"Maybe he feels comfortable there": Donald Trump gets it in on the unhinged right-wing reaction to Obama's mosque visit

“There are a lot of places he can go and he chose a mosque," Trump says of Obama's historic visit

President Obama went to a Baltimore mosque Wednesday. It was a monumental gesture for a lame duck president, to be sure.

And whether intended or not, it was also a gloriously deserved middle finger to basically everything Donald Trump has preached for the past seven years — everything from OG birtherism to unabashed Islamophobia.


To assure Obama that the message was received, Trump went “On The Record with Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News.

Though claiming not to “have much thought” regarding Obama’s mosque visit, Trump did offer his own theory: “Maybe he feels comfortable there.”

“We have a lot of problems in this country,” Trump explained. “There are a lot of places he can go and he chose a mosque.”

“That’s his decision,” Trump concluded. “That’s fine.”

Watch Trump try his best not to call Obama a secret Muslim over at Mediaite.
