Donald Trump again clarified his Islamic State comments about President Barack Obama, telling supporters in Pennsylvania on Friday that the remarks he earlier dubbed as "sarcastic" were really "not that sarcastic, to be honest with you."

"When I said that Obama — and, of course, I'm being sarcastic," the Republican presidential nominee told a rally at the Erie Insurance Arena in Erie. "They know that. Because after I said that, I said he's the MVP.

"So, I said, 'the founder of ISIS," Trump continued. "Obviously, I'm being sarcastic — but not that sarcastic, to be honest with you."

Trump came under heavy fire for saying Wednesday that Obama was the "founder of ISIS" and the "most valuable player" — and that his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, was the terrorist group's "co-founder."

After days of blistering attacks, the Republican nominee claimed the comments were "sarcasm" in a Twitter post Friday ripping CNN for its coverage of the remarks.

In battleground Pennsylvania, Trump again bashed the media for taking his comments out of context.

"They knew I was being sarcastic," he told the crowd. "Now, they're analyzing: 'Did I really mean that?' 'How could I say that?'

"These people are the lowest form of life," Trump said to the cheering crowd. "They are the lowest form of humanity."
