Word of the release of a new recruitment video by the Somali-based terrorist group al-Shabab dominated the news cycle on Saturday for one reason — it featured a sound bite of Donald Trump.
What didn’t garner any attention from the corrupt American media is that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton was also in the video.
The al Qaida affiliate video used a clip of Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States following the attack in San Bernardino by an Islamic terror couple that claimed the lives of 14 people — a temporary ban “until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
Clinton wasted little time capitalizing on the Republican presidential front-runner’s remarks.
Saying he “is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter,” she claimed Trump had been used in recruitment videos for the Islamic State, though no evidence of this surfaced. And while Trump demanded an apology, none was forthcoming.
As for the al-Shabab video, it’s anyone’s guess whether Clinton provided the inspiration.
The 52-minute al-Shabab video includes a clip of Trump’s proposed ban, along with footage from noted racist Malcolm X to convince Muslims that America is a racist country and will turn on them, according to CNN.
The video also makes an appeal to the Black Lives Matter movement, taking advantage of trumped-up racial tensions over so-called police brutality to urge young blacks to convert to Islam.
Like Hillary’s appearance, the inclusion of Black Lives Matter in the video was deemed to be less than newsworthy by the media.
National Review’s Stephen Miller took to social media to remind the media of its … ahem, oversight.
Based on the reaction on social media, folks have caught on to the media’s gig. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

@redsteeze Does it have the required ‘Paid for by the DNC” disclaimer at the end?
