#DonaldTrump supporter: Muslims want to kill us

Trump is getting more media scorn for not correcting a "mis-informed Trump supporter".

"We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims," an unidentified man who spoke at a question-and-answer town hall event in Rochester, New Hampshire asked the mogul. "You know our current president is one. You know he's not even an American."
A seemingly bewildered Trump interrupted the man, chuckling, "We need this question. This is the first question."
"Anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us," the man, wearing a "Trump" T-shirt, continued. "That's my question: When can we get rid of them?"
There were two issues raised; one crazy and the other sane; Obama is a Muslim and Muslims want to kill us.
Trump's response was not agreement, it was business-sociopathic code for  "Oh jeez a crazy person". But his first response was not this is an important question.  He did not want to engage and argue with this person. If you've heard as many business leaders as I have you know they're really saying fuck off and die even as they sound sincere more times than not. The first statement was bogus but Trump wanted to move along.
The unnamed Trump supporter was right on the other fact. There are Muslims training in camps (madrassas) indoctrinated to hate America and Americans.

The fact is the media is sidestepping the right issue to ridicule Trump  about the stupid question regarding Obama but not the very real part of the Muslims fomenting hate and death to America.

Of course the career politician Clinton thought this was a great time to support the false narrative of the media. This is pure cynical voter exploitation.

Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong. Cut it out. -H

So let's argue about decorum and etiquette whether or not Trump didn't admonish this American over his fears.  Instead of a very real problem that can't be glossed over.
