In this flashback video from September 2008, just two months before the November election that elected him to his first term, Barack Obama tells George Stephanopoulos that so far in the campaign, and I quote, “John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith.”
Realizing that Obama may have just admitted something that contradicts earlier proclamations that he is a “Christian,” George Stephanopoulos, a longtime Democrat Party operative, came to Obama’s defense, immediately correcting him.
“You’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith, and you’re absolutely right that has not come…” Obama declared, before being abruptly interrupted.
“Christian faith,” Stephanopoulos coached.
“My Christian faith,” Obama repeats.
