Dave Weigel makes a decent point:
Gaslighting black Democrats into thinking Hillary started birtherism would make more sense if, you know, Obama wasn't around to contradict.

A mildly encouraging development: Almost all of the mainstream media stories I’ve seen on Trump’s 90-minute infomercial / 30-second birther statement have noted that he’s lying when he says Hillary Clinton started it. Some even call the claim “false” or “lies” right in the headline.
ETA: Tell it, Hillz!
