White House blasts Donald Trump over supporters’ anti-Muslim comments

by Dave Boyer - The Washington Times  |  published on September 19, 2015

The White House castigated Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump Friday for failing to confront a campaign supporter who said President Obama is a Muslim and had urged the candidate to “get rid” of Muslims in the U.S.

“Is anybody really surprised that this happened at a Donald Trump rally?” asked White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “The people who hold these offensive views are part of Mr. Trump’s base.”

    Donald said it best He is not responsible for defending the OTUS if bummer can’t take the heat get the hell out of the kitchen

  • Penny Fuentes

    If you let Obama and political correctness continue to make a mockery of this country, then we deserve what is happening to us. obamass is a muslim, I heard it from his own big mouth. He is not a Christian, never has been and never will be. Take a look at his left hand at Ramadan and see that he takes off his wedding ring and any other jewelry, pins watch during the month.

    Getting blasted by the white house is a sure sine Trump did the right thing.

  • aberdeenvet

    The day a Muslim is running for or elected to the presidency is the day America ceases to exist.

    the devils are spinning, they are not having affect on stopping Trump. Trump is a declared Christian and Americans are standing with him. God Bless You Donald Trump, your team, family, and Americans who love the USA.

    One of the biggest slams on democrats is the viewership of MSNBC and CNN.
    Bottom of the rating scale. One of the best indicators of popularity.

    One of the main political planks of Mr/ Trump’s campaign is to rid this country of the false narrative the left always pushes called “Politically Correctness” Mr. Trump did not correct the questioner for that very reason. It is only the Left and MSM who tells the rest of America”you can’t say this or that” because it does not fit into the framework of the lies the Left and Media are spreading. The irony of this whole diatribe is that we are even bringing up what the Media and Obama backers see as offensive and not Politically Correct. I support Mr Trump on this issue and many others. Freedom of Speech will and should always take precedent over someone else s concept of what is right or wrong to say. I do not need Josh Ernst to tell me what I should think of this president or any other corrupt politician in DC. This is why that whole town needs a deep cleansing, and millions of Trump supporters are going to help get him elected so he can do it.

  • Anyone with half a brain knows Hussein is a Muslim Pig and Josh Earnest is an Obama Butt Boy who laps up any and all vomit it Kenyan Queer spews! We are still a 1st Rate Nation, but we have 3rd World Idiots in charge! Once we get rid of the Enemy in the Oval Office, we will recover. It will be a great day for the USA and the World when we awake to the morning headline being Obama’s obituary! I just pray it is soon, very, very, very soon!

      O is just a PerfectPuppet of his controllers are members of their force “NeoconZionistCommies” and THEY are the danger to USA.

      They tell O what to do, what to say, and put his public speeches on teleprompters. The searched for a perfectpuppet since after WWII, found trained groomed O to be obedient in exchange for a later APPOINTED powerposition in their North America Union (NAU) which they are working to destroy by methodical destruction of our magnificent Constitution and Founding documents, grab our guns, erase our Sovereign borders so that they can create their NAU to hook with their European Union (EU) which they are trying to expand like they just grabbed Ukraine… NAU being Canada USA Mexico and trailing countries with Cuba as the tail country.

      They are a real and present danger to the continuation of the USA and all that it stands for. They MUST be removed by vote or any applicable legal means (and our Founders gave us plenty of methods) from our Senate House and Supreme. We will not put another puppet, commie non-Christian or socialist in our Presidency.

      • To use legal methods, we need a Congress that is loyal to We, the People and we have not had one of those in many a year! All the Lifer GOP RINOs made promise after promise to get elected in 2012, and then turned their backs on us! As an old Vet, who served under Presidents Johnson thru Reagan, I am all for the military moving in and removing Obama by force, march the queer out in handcuffs and put him in Gitmo and Water Board the hell out of him to find out the truth! But, I also believe what our Lord says and the words of Revelation and that we are in the beginnings of the End Times. Since the Kenyan Muslim Queen conned his way into office, the insanity has been getting worse and worse, because Hussein is an Enemy and NOT an American in any sense! It will truly be a wonderful day for our Nation, and the World, whether we are in the End Times or not, when the morning headline is Obama’s Obituary! I would really love to see his head explode on National TV, during a speech, but I get physically sick to my stomach when I hear the girly/boys voice. Course, I would watch the hell out of the reruns though, lol! God Bless you and yours, my friend!

    Who could possibly still think Obama is NOT a Muslim? Throughout his presidency Obama has promoted Islam. Did he do anything when Christians were fleeing persecution in Iraq? No. Osama bin Laden ordered the 9/11 attack and Americans deserved proof of his death when he was killed. But what did Obama do? Order a burial at sea, and the suppression of photos, so the Muslim world would not be “offended”. Christians have been crucified, beheaded, and burned alive by Isis, but he has no problem with that. What bothers him, is that a few people made a movie that he thought was offensive to the Prophet Mohammed.

    If he’s not a Muslim extremist, he’s the Anti-Christ. Your pick!

    • S. Wicks Jr

      My vote; obamy is BOTH, a muslim and a ANTI-CHRIST. DOWN with the DEMON-crapic party….. They brought you obamy and next hitlery….

  • molly kennedy

    I did not find the question offensive, I have believed from day 1 that Bama is a muslim, he sat in Rev. Wrights church for 20 years and listened to him spew his hateful rhetoric. Since he had to distance himself from him, he no longer goes to church. He is no more a Christian than i am a muslim. He set out to ruin our great nation and he has just about accomplished that. Remember that all you who drank the kool ade and gave him a 2nd term.

  • Terry Rushing

    I presume that Josh ” Forked Tongue” Earnest didn’t produce these thoughts out of his own empty head, so it must have come from the chief muzzie lover himself. Apparently his little feelings were hurt so boo hoo, I’m all broken up over his pain. As for deporting muzzies, I’m all in favor of the idea and I suggest we begin with the self proclaimed muzzie usurper sitting in OUR HOUSE. Don’t let the door bump your behind on your way out “Ears” and be sure to take that family, Valerie Jarrett and the “head” of Homeland Security with you.

  • unique201

    Donald Trump doesn’t have to defend anyone but himself.
    The president has more then enough people that do not
    know any better defending him.

  • john

    He may not be a muslim, but the version of his birth certificate that was on the internet showed he was born in Africa, not in Hawaii

    • Terry Rushing

      Which means that this individual is constitutionally disqualified from the office he now holds. Too bad Mitch and company are afraid to “shut down the government” or they would insist that he relinquish the office to Biden.

  • mrcricketmba

    To Josh Earnest and company,
    Why would any Republican back this stinky, lousy, fear monger president, he (Obitme) is the worst president since Carter and Wilson. He has told the rst of the world by words and actions the America is a bad country, he is trying to take away our freedoms one by one, fg the and amendment right to bear arms, shoved his stupid health care down our throats and is only trying to make himself look good, but when historians evaluate his legacy they will see what a jerk he is/was.

    Bottom line Trump’s lack of response was spot on, if you have nothing good to say about anybody, then don’t say anything at all. It is obvious that Trump couldn’t say anything at all that is why his silence.

    As for Hilary she is one to call the kettle black, look at her scathing remarks when she ran against Obitme and bringing up the birtha issue, she is the one that started the issue to try and prove that he was not a US citizen.

    As for republican candidates that made comment about Trump lack of look response where they are in the polls. They are just trying get some publicity to make themselves look good.

  • pete G

    Never call a spade a spade in America today, the liberals and the lying press will try to tear you apart.

  • Pam

    Well, the Washington Times article that this is taken from changed Trump’s question marks to periods. What he actually said was, “DO we really need this question? THIS is the first question? The article (and liberals in general) want you to believe that the questioner was asking when we are going to get rid of Muslims. What he was ACTUALLY asking was when are we going to root out and get rid of these training camps.
    It amazes me how the Left and the MSM expect every Republican to police the free speech and condemn/apologize for the words of their supporters. When, just off the top of my head (without doing a search) I can think of:
    1. “they gonna put y’all back in chains” – from “Poor Ol’ Uncle Joe”
    2. “I have information that Mitt Romney hasn’t filed taxes for ten years” – Read into the official Senate record by “Dingy Harry” who, with the help of his son is attempting to sell Nevada to the Chinese.
    3. Paul Ryan will throw Grandma off a cliff – DNC tv ads
    4. And then there is the Democratic Standard Talking Point – Any time a Republican/Conservative disagrees with them they are: Racist, Homophobic, Islamophobic, Xenophobic, and on and on and on.
    It’s about time that “We The People” let these idiots know that we WILL hold on to our FIRST AMENDMENT rights to freedom of speech, expression and worship; and that we will ALSO start holding them accountable by calling out when their free speech is blatantly UNTRUE. Can’t we and shouldn’t we yell just as loudly as they?

    • Terry Rushing

      The only problem is that we would be shouting in a vacuum because the likes of MSNBC and CNN and other “news makers” unabashedly “report” only those things that suits their purpose with truth in the reporting being a poor second. I routinely ignore “PC” when I speak and if such talk offends some lefty nut job then so be it. An offended socialist, muzzie loving, PC leftie is a good indicator that the comment struck a raw nerve with a bit of truth. (Lefties hate truth unless it is their version.) I do agree that the first amendment (and all others for that matter) apply to those on the right as well as those on the left.

    • Brother_p

      Well said Pam… I couldn’t agree more!!!

    • Daniel C.

      I agree Pam. I really don’t know if Trump is the answer, but I’m willing to listen. The only thing that bugs me is I hear the anger in these post against the Dems, and the Rinos, but some how they keep getting re-elected. It would seem to me, the people have a very short memory. This is what should happen. If you have a real conservitive in your district, support them. If you have a Rino, you primary him/her. If you have a Dem, and are not happy, you find a good conservitive to run against them. Just remember, you get what you vote for.

  • Daniel C.

    Like it or not, thst person was using his first amendment right to express his opinion. Of course the left wants to shut him up. It’s what they do when they don’t like what is being said. It’s “Freedom for me, not for thee” January 2017 cannot come soon enough for me, as long as it’s not Hillary.

    • S. Wicks Jr

      After this regime; anyone voting for a DEMONcrap should have their heads examined. We need Trump to turn the tide around and get this nation on the straight and narrow to becoming the nation it ONCE WAS.

      • Kent2012

        they will be getting everything examined and the Real American taxpayer will be paying for it…and if they are disappointed in the gender that God gave them kenyan boyo’s knife squad will perform the “reassignment” for them…

  • J_R_K

    ““The people who hold these offensive views are part of Mr. Trump’s base.”

    That comment is pure propaganda crap. No matter how you look at it, measure it, weigh, the Obama administration is the most un-American, anti-freedom, anti-constitutional, pro-socialist, pro-totalitarian and deliberately offensive presidency in the history of the Unites States. No surprise that Josh Earnest, paid propagandizer, would make such an inanely offensive comment.

    The more I listen to the left, the more I am convinced that it inter-breeds with itself under rocks.

  • VirgoVince

    Hey, Josh, WE, the people, have ALL the proof WE need, don’t argue with the TRUTH, FACTS AND EVIDENCE!

  • Sidney Porter

    How was Mr. Trump suppose to react? an why should he sence the man was telling the TRUTH, Obama is a Muslim, he wasn’t born in the USA, some people don’t know the FACT IS THAT HE SIGNED UP FOR COLLEGE AS A FOREIGNER, AND HE’S ALSO A TERRORIST OUT TO FINISH DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY, his gold from the beginning.

    • john

      It’s wasn’t Trumps job to police the audience during the debate.

      • S. Wicks Jr

        The demoncraps will grasp at anything and try and turn into negative propaganda to help Hitlery in her quest to finish off destroying the USA as we know it today. Vote for Trump and let’s turn this country around and become a Great Nation Once again..

        • RescueKyron

          We are at war with the destroyers within. We will defeat them at the polls and by removing them in other agencies. Make no mistake, this is a war.
