I'm a conservative and this type of stuff is what's wrong with politics. I don't think this really matters even if he did. If he wore an Irish clauda ring, would that make him a Wiccan?
But let's not pretend both sides don't do this stuff. I recall two lies: like how Bush supposedly "didn't know what supermarket scanner was" and asked the leader of Brazil "you have blacks too?". Both didn't happen, but everyone pretended it did.
