Presidential candidate Rick Perry told Parade magazine last weekend that he didn’t know if Obama’s birth certificate was legitimate. Let the games begin.
Donald Trump jumped in during an interview with Piers Morgan yesterday (Oct. 27):
MORGAN: But tell me this: do you think politically for Rick Perry…
TRUMP: I think it’s a positive for him.
MORGAN: Is it a sensible thing for him to do?
TRUMP: Well, I think it’s good for him in the Republican primary. I don’t necessarily know if it’s good in the general election.
On the other hand, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus today blamed it all on the media “badgering” Perry with questions on the topic (the liberal media made him do it). The interview will air on Bloomberg TV tomorrow.
“I’ve said from the very beginning that I think it’s a big distraction,” Priebus said. “But I think it’s an issue that’s been dropped.”
Somebody tell the birthers.
