The Hillary Clinton campaign disavowed support from the Orlando gunman’s father Tuesday following a viral Infowars article demanding she do exactly that.
According to campaign spokesman Nick Merrill, Clinton “disagrees with his views and disavows his support.”
The comment regarding anti-gay, Taliban supporter Seddique Mateen, whose son murdered 49 people at a gay nightclub in June, came after Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson questioned why Hillary hadn’t spoken out against Mateen – who was prominently featured behind her at a recent Florida rally.
Clinton initially ignored the calls, even ignoring questions by reporters regarding Mateen.

Once Infowars’ article gained further attention after being prominently featured at the top of the Drudge Report, Clinton’s campaign was seemingly forced to finally disavow the terrorist’s father.
This latest incident reveals yet again how the alternative media, not the so-called “mainstream,” is steering the Clinton narrative.
