Nasrallah backing Donald Trump?

The Hill implies (as did many others over the weekend) that Hezbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah is backing Donald Trump.
The leader of Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group agreed with Donald Trump when he said President Obama founded the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). 
"This is an American presidential candidate who is saying this. What he says is based on facts and documents," said Hassan Nasrallah, according to The Associated Press. 
Trump on Wednesday called Obama the founder of ISIS and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton the co-founder. 
He doubled down on the claim Thursday in an interview with Hugh Hewitt. 
“No, I meant that he’s the founder of ISIS,” Trump said. “He was the most valuable player. I gave him the most valuable player award."
But Friday, Trump tweeted that he was being facetious. 
"Ratings challenged @CNN reports so seriously that I call president Obama (and Clinton) 'the founder' of ISIS, &  MVP. THEY DON'T GET SARCASM?"
Jonathan Schanzer has the best retort I've seen to the entire Trump/Nasrallah/ISIS story.
