Donald Trump—who first got into politics by implying President Obama was a secret Muslim immigrant—seemed to hint this morning that President Obama has terrorist ties that are keeping him from saying the words "radical Islamic terrorism" in relation to the shootings in Orlando. Okay. So. Hmm.

"Look, we're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind," the always tough, smart, and focused Trump said in a Fox News interview on Monday morning. "And the something else in mind -- you know, people can't believe it. People cannot, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.' There's something going on. It's inconceivable. There's something going on."

"There's something going on." Hmm. Hmmm.

Trump was also asked by Fox why he called for Obama to resign. "He doesn't get it or he gets it better than anybody understands—it's one or the other and either one is unacceptable," Trump replied. [Emphasis ours]

"He gets it better than anybody understands." Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
