Fiery 'Why Now?!': 'Outnumbered' Hosts Battle Over Trump's 'Birther' Comments
Donald Trump acknowledged Friday that "President Barack Obama was born in the United States," apparently putting an end to his support of "birther" theories.
The "Outnumbered" hosts got heated today while discussing Trump's comments.
Julie Roginksy questioned the Republican nominee's sincerity, likening it to if she, a longtime Trump critic, suddenly changed her tune and began praising him.
"Many of us have questions. Everybody should have questions. This is not going to put to bed five years of completely horrific statements on his part," Roginksy said. "What changed his mind?"
She pointed out that Obama produced his birth certificate in 2011, but Trump was still advancing "birther" theories as recently as 2014 and 2015.
"What has changed?!"
When Harris Faulkner argued that Trump tweeted in March 2013 that Obama's place of birth is not the most important issue, Roginsky accused her of "cherry-picking."
She said that she could dig up more recent Trump tweets where he was still raising "birther" questions.
She said that all journalists and voters should be asking Trump questions: "What made you change your mind today? Why today? Why not yesterday?"
