Donald Trump doesn’t challenge anti-Muslim questioner – CNNPolitics.com

“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 at a rally Thursday night. “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?”

Am I the only person who finds the racist and xenophobic nature of the question to be scarier than the comments about Obama. Sometimes the best thing to say when someone says something stupid is nothing at all. I don’t know why Trump didn’t challenge the man. However, media attention of the pointless comments only serves to stir the pot.

In my opinion nothing the ranting man said deserves our attention. This time I am not just talking about Trump.

Now on to the racist tone of his question. It frightens me to think of how many people out there agree with the mans angry question. During WWII we locked up honest Americans from Japan. It was a travesty. My hope is my country would never make the same mistake again.
