    You keep bringing up the Clintons like I care about the Clintons. Or the Democrats for that matter. I've already schooled you on this assumption. Repeatedly. You haven't been paying attention.


Right, this is a common tactic that John Oliver calls "whataboutism" that is all about trying to deflect the subject onto someone else because the person can't actually defend the original charge:

Indeed, he is repeating a Trump talking point that has been repeatedly debunked:

It's another whataboutism that also happens to be a lie. But what about Trump, the true subject here? He was the most prominent birther for over 5 years! What does that say about him that he was promoting this racist lie?
