Daily News Blasts Trump For Telling Bizarre Fake Story About Killing Muslims With Pig Blood Soaked Bullets

Trump’s audience, unsurprisingly, LOVED the story. From the New York Daily News:

Donald Trump’s tough talk on terrorism took a bizarre and bloodthirsty turn Friday as he gleefully retold a stomach-turning tall tale about Muslim extremists being killed with bullets that had been dipped in pig’s blood.

His supporters rabidly cheered him on as the GOP presidential front-runner turned myth into his own reality, telling them at a rally in North Charleston, S.C., about U.S. Gen. John Pershing supposedly executing dozens of Muslims held prisoner in the Philippines.

“He took 50 bullets and he dipped them in pig’s blood,” Trump said. “And he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the 50th person, he said, ‘You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.’ And for 25 years there wasn’t a problem.”

The yarn that Trump rehashed on the eve of the South Carolina primary stems from a hoax spread via email, according to rumor tracker Snopes.com.
