Trump just attacked Clinton on the Catholic church. He's definitely forgetting something



Posted about 17 hours ago by Joe Vesey-Byrne

Donald Trump criticised Hillary Clinton for her remarks regarding Catholics, forgetting the time he called the Pope 'disgraceful'.

In an all-caps tweet posted on Friday, the Republican presidential candidate wrote:

Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN’S ANTI-CATHOLIC BIGOTRY: http://bit.ly/2dcbtvkCrooked

11:23 AM - 14 Oct 2016 · Manhattan, NY, United States

The link took followers to a page of Trump's website which compiled quotes from TV pundits and news articles regarding perceived anti-Catholic bigotry in Clinton campaign emails released by WikiLeaks.

In February 2016 however, Trump's official campaign issued a statement that called the head of the Catholic church 'disgraceful'.

1. IIRC, the remarks re the Catholic Church were not written or spoken by Hillary

but by her staffer, Jen Palmieri to John Podesta.

There's a general understanding that Catholics can criticize Catholics, Jews can criticize Jews, and other denomination can criticize their own.
Of course, it's better if those call-outs remain within the body, but, apparently, in today's world, that's not going to happen.
In other words, keep the dirty laundry within the family.
Don't pay any attention to what the "Catholic League" has to say - that's old Bill Donahue and no one takes him seriously.
