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."
