    Hillary Clinton’s claim that the Islamic State is using videos of Donald Trump to recruit more fighters is being panned by fact-checkers – and sharply challenged by Trump himself.

    As might be expected, the Republican front-runner fired back Sunday at the former secretary of state’s claim from Saturday’s debate.

    “It's nonsense. It's just another Hillary lie. She lies like crazy about everything,” Trump said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

    Clinton alleged during the debate in New Hampshire that Trump is becoming “ISIS’ best recruiter.”

    “They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists,” she said.

    Like Trump’s claim that “thousands” of Muslims in America celebrated 9/11, this claim by Clinton was swiftly vetted by fact-checkers -- and found to be lacking concrete evidence.

    PolitiFact rated the claim “false.”

    When her campaign was confronted with the lie, they still refused to admit it.

    They could just say she made a mistake or mispoke, but , no, they still deny, deny, deny.

    Liars all the way.

    Even CNN said it was proven to be untrue from what they could gather. I'm sure Trump will be going after her now. It should be very interesting to see what he comes up with on Hillary. I'm sure it'll be something with more credence than Hillary's statement.

    I think he's saving most of his fire on her until the general election. Evenso, he is basically saying she's an inveterate liar.

    Maybe Hillary was trying to say that jihadists have no objections to her since she mentioned ISIS.

    Obama calls them ISIL because he can't resist calling for the abolition of Israel.

    The ironic thing is that Bill Clinton is in an Isis video

    LOL And it's pretty clear they refer to him as a fornicator. The timing was just too perfect. Had to be intentional.

    Now that her husband has allegedly been shown in an "ISIS" video Hillary can claim that "ISIS" is working for Trump in order to undermine her political campaign.

    Oh, Hillary lies just for the practice. She tried to smear Trump for calling for a pause in immigration just as Russell Moore of the Southern Baptists tried to smear Trump on the same issue. Both of them imply that Trump called for a permanent pause, which is another lie.

    That's an oxymoron. How can something be permanent while remaining a pause?

    What are you an English professor? The fact is that both Clinton and the Southern Baptist Russell Moore bore false witness about Trump.
