Current Political Hot Button Issues

From President Obama in the hot seat to TV networks crying foul at each other in Libya, INSIDE EDITION covers the current political issues that are hitting the airwaves.

Donald Trump is not backing down. He's still signaling his support for the "birther" movement and the audacious claim that President Obama wasn't really born in the USA. And that sparked a furious exchange on The View.

"I want him to show his birth certificate. There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like," said Trump.

"I think that's the biggest pile of dog mess I've ever heard," said Whoopi Goldberg.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is visiting South America with his family but he is cutting his trip short.

 "Aides are mindful of those images of the President sightseeing while the U.S. military is involved in action overseas," said Savannah Guthrie, a White House correspondent for NBC News.

Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh is calling the President's male advisors "sissies."

He says they were opposed to military action against Libya and says it was the President's top female advisors who urged him to strike.

"The three people who talked Obama into using force were all woman," said Limbaugh.

And the fighting in Libya has spilled over onto the news networks CNN and FOX News, who are engaged in a bitter public feud.

It started when a FOX correspondent accused a CNN crew of willingly acting as human shields for the Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi.

"British defense forces had to call off Tornado fighter planes that were loaded with seven missiles that were destined for compounds because off the presence of those news crews," said FOX News correspondent Jennifer Griffin.

CNN's Nick Robertson fired back angrily and said, "I expect lies from the government here, but I don't expect it from other journalists."

Steven Colbert poked fun at the warring networks: "I want to commend both FOX News and CNN on their courageous reporting of the fighting in Libya between FOX News and CNN."
