He never said it was a birther press conference!!
So the media lost their minds on Twitter when they arrived at a Donald Trump birther event, only to hear from veterans and why they support Trump. Ehrmahgerd, Trump tricked them!!! Or did he?
That is all he said. So of course the media complains about hearing from war veterans.
That was probably the lowest point of this campaign so far. I’m truly disgusted.

Make no mistake: trump hid from questions with veterans as human shield

Teased? He never mentioned it!
Has Trump pulled a bait and switch on the cable nets? Teased a big birther announcement. Then puts up vets who praise him.

Attacking war veterans. Stay classy.

Yes, so awful considering Trump never said he was holding a birther event.
Today is actually POW/MIA Day to remember those who never made it home.
Today we honor those who were POW and MIA.

But no. Let’s complain about hearing from people who sacrificed so much to keep our country free and safe. How awful of them for wasting your precious time.
Trump did address the birther issue in a one minute statement:
“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it,” Trump said in Washington, D.C. “President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again.”
He mentions that Hillary started it, which forces the media to also mention it as they fact check his claims. But even after they run their fact checks, they still have to mention Hillary, which is all anyone will remember. Not the fact check.
