The latest spin on his public accusation that President Obama founded ISIS boils down to this: JK LOL.
This is despite the fact that when Hugh Hewitt tried to throw Trump a life raft by putting his accusation in figurative terms, Trump insisted that he really was serious: “No, I meant he’s the founder of ISIS. I do. He was the most valuable player.”
To be fair, as far as face-saving strategies go, most people on Twitter don’t get sarcasm.
