Donald Trump is known for ridiculous and offensive comments–and these days, whenever he’s caught in one of them, he quickly comes to say it was a JOKE.
During a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Fla on Wednesday, Trump said: “ISIS is honoring President Obama.” “He’s the founder of ISIS. He founded ISIS,” he added.
Then he went further to say; “I would say the co-founder would be Crooked Hillary Clinton.”
Now after social media backlash and several top American politicians calling Trump’s message offensive and unacceptable, he’s come back to say, he was just being sarcastic.
Trump who had said during a radio interview on Thursday with Hugh Hewitt that “everyone’s liking” his comment has taken to twitter today to say, people don’t get sarcasm.
Ratings challenged @CNN reports so seriously that I call President Obama (and Clinton) “the founder” of ISIS, & MVP. THEY DON’T GET SARCASM?
