That's when everything unraveled for the GOP's leading pollster in the 2016 presidential election, and it all started with the man's question to The Donald:
"We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims. You know our current president is one. You know he's not even an American. Anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us … That's my question: When can we get rid of them?"
Uhhh… a presumed supporter of Trump (he was wearing a 'Trump' t-shirt, according to reports) just asked The Donald if, as president, he would ethnically cleanse America of all Muslims??? WHAT?!
Trump didn't do much to dissuade the misinformation over President Barack Obama's religion, or the awful remark about Muslims in this country. Instead he responded:
"We're going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening. We're going to be looking at that and many other things."
Wait… he didn't deny the man's question about getting rid of all Muslims in America?? What happened to, ya know, freedom of religion?!
Trump took heat from reporters and folks on Twitterover the vague answer about this insane idea of ethnic cleansing, as well as his refusal to deny to the premise that Obama is a practicing Muslim.
There's nothing wrong with being Muslim, of course, but the President has said numerous times that he is Christian! Thinking otherwise frankly just seems like wackjob conspiracy theory.
What do U guys think about this — will overt racism be The Donald's undoing in this campaign season?! Or is he speaking to a certain crazy segment of the populace that will keep pushing him forward in the polls??

So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
