Presidential campaigns address 'birther' lies and spin

Hosted by

Donald Trump today changed his tune about President Obama's birthplace, but in the process, he tried to revise political history when he accused Hillary Clinton of beginning the controversy in her 2008 presidential campaign.

Of course, it was Trump who kept the "birther" conspiracy alive even after the President released his birth certificate. Declaring that "his campaign was founded on an outrageous lie," Clinton has called for an apology. Jonathan Allen, who is is head of content at the political news platform Sidewire and a columnist at Roll Call, picks up the story.
