Drudge Report Hits Back on Hillary's Birther Claim With Video, Article From 2008

Drudge Report Friday sought to buck claims that Hillary Clinton's campaign did not first raise the birther issue by posting a video of a 2008 debate in which Clinton was asked about a photo showing then-Sen. Barack Obama in African garb that Drudge has reported was leaked by her campaign.

In the YouTube video of the MSNBC Democratic debate on Feb. 26, 2008, Clinton denied any knowledge of the photograph when asked by questioner Brian Williams.

The comments begin at the 6:04 mark of the video.

The photo was taken in 2006, according to a Feb. 25 Politico report featuring Obama campaign manager David Plouffe slamming the picture.

The then-Illinois senator was "dressed as a Somali Elder, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya," according to the report.

Plouffe had accused the Clinton campaign of "shameful offensive fear-mongering" by circulating the photo.

Drudge Report packaged the video and Politico article on its home page under the headline " FLASHBACK: BIRTHER BORN 2008...."

After challenging President Obama on his birthplace since 2011, Donald Trump publicly acknowledged Friday that he was born in the United States.

Clinton demanded that Trump apologize to the president and accused him of trying to "delegitimize our first black president."
