HuffPost's Alex Wagner Discusses Donald Trump's Embrace Of Birtherism On 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' (VIDEO)

HuffPost's Alex Wagner appear on 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' on Thursday night to discuss Donald Trump's recent embrace of birther-ism.

"This is a controversy that isn't going away because Donald Trump is keeping it alive," explained Wagner.

After O'Donnell played a clip of Trump discussing Muslims, Wagner said, "Donald Trump is fueling really negative conversation around multiracialism," and "between 2000 and 2010, there was a 50% increase in multiracial youth born in this country and here's someone that is purportedly running for President in 2012 and is casting aspersions on the nation's first biracial President, and I think that that is a disturbing thing."
