Even the haters admit ‘Donald Trump’s birther event is the greatest trick he’s ever pulled’

The media may have been furious, but Donald Trump is basking in the glory of what observers are calling one of the most brilliant moves in political history.

The Republican presidential nominee gathered the media together to hear a “major announcement” from him on what he really thought about President Obama birthplace.

What happened next was that all three major cable news networks — Fox News, CNN and MSNBC — aired a live half-hour infomercial for Donald Trump with retired military brass and a gold star wife touting their endorsements of the candidate.

And Trump couldn’t have been more proud of himself as he tweeted articles about what a great job he did playing the media.

For their part, the media were none too happy.

The CNN panel that followed the event were literally yelling over each other to express their anger, while one declared “we got played by the Trump campaign.”

Other media personalities took to TV and social media to voice their frustrations with being “Rick Rolled” by Trump.

They were so angry that they destroyed footage of Trump’s new hotel in a fit of rage.

And Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton just about had a meltdown as she unleashed a torrent of tweets deriding Trump.

But many others thought it was fantastic.
