The Media Play Their Latest Trump Card--To No Avail

The American media are convinced they may finally have their Donald Trump "gotcha" moment. It came in New Hampshire, where Trump offered no rebuttal when one of his supporters called President Obama "a Muslim and a foreigner."

Silly media. Even if, as everyone knows, Obama is neither of the above, his manifold actions speak for themselves. And, as the ever-sagacious Mark Steyn once observed, "If he were working for the other side, what exactly would he be doing differently?"

Here's Steyn, funny as heck, on what went on at the summit Obama convened last February in a bogus effort to counter "violent extremism" (the clunky euphemism non-Muslims like Obama employ to obfuscate the jihad):
"Violent extremism" may have nothing to do with Islam, yet Obama's summit on "violent extremism" was oddly preoccupied with Islam, to the extent of according it a special deference:
A Muslim prayer was recited at the start of the second day of the White House summit on "Countering Violent Extremism," but no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press. 
Imam Sheikh Sa'ad Musse Roble, president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis, Minn., recited a "verse from the Quran" following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress.
But hey, what's so odd about that? "Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding," says the President. You might think that Islam has been entirely irrelevant to "the fabric of our country" for its first two centuries, and you might further think that Islam, being self-segregating, tends not to weave itself into anybody's fabric but instead tends to unravel it - as it's doing in, say, Copenhagen, where 500 mourners turned up for the funeral of an ISIS-supporting Jew-hating anti-free-speech murderer
But President Obama knows better than you. So he organized a summit dedicated to creating and promoting a self-invented phantom enemy.
He may not be a Muslim (like his dad and stepdad), but he sure seems to have the best interests of Muslims at heart.

So nice try there, lefty news outlets, but your trumped up "gotcha" is unlikely to do the trick.

Update: Oh, look--the media are trying to do a two man takedown via a single "gotcha!"

Update: Remember this?
