Dear Mediaite, The Hill and Politico: If you're going to run this story...

Donald Trump, speaking on Laura Ingraham's radio show, predicted President Obama would start a war with Iran to help himself out politically...

... you could at least make note of the fact that this Trump talking point is a rerun. From Think Progress on January 6 of this year:

"I say he starts a war with Iran before the election which will make it very hard for the Republican to win," Donald Trump predicted (again) on [Sean] Hannity's radio show yesterday morning. "I think it’s going to happen."

The "again" link points to a Trump tweet from November of last year that predicted the same thing. The tweet was reported at the time by ... um, Mediaite.

If you're not going to ignore this jerk, before you give him free publicity you should at least demand that he write some fresh material.
