After Going Birther, Rick Perry Gets Mad At Reporter Who Asks Him About It
How dare Jim Acosta of CNN ask Rick Perry about his comments that he’s not sure where President Obama was born? Perry calls it a “distraction,” and yet he is the one distracting with it; distracting from his own descending candidacy.
During Rick Perry‘s press conference today about his flat tax plan, CNN reporter Jim Acosta posed a question to the Texas Governor about his recent comments about President Obama’s birth certificate. “You raised the issue of the president’s birth certificate over the weekend. I’m just curious what will it take to convince you that the president was born in this country? And do you have any plans to release your birth certificate?” Acosta asked. “I’ll cut you off right there,” Perry interrupted, giving the reporter an irritated scowl. “That is one of the biggest distractions that there is going. We need to be talking about jobs. If somebody that wants to see my birth certificate, I’ll show it to ‘em. But that is a distraction and Americans don’t really care about that, if you want to know the truth of the matter. What Americans want to talk about is jobs.”Click here for reuse options!
