Perry Wades into Birtherism Again

by Katrina Trinko

In an interview published this weekend, Rick Perry would not say President Obama’s birth certificate was definitively authentic. In an interview this morning, the topic came up again. 

“I haven’t seen his grades,” Perry told CNBC in an interview this morning, referring to Obama. “My grades ended up on the front pages of the newspaper, so if we’re going to show stuff, let’s show stuff. But look, that’s all a distraction. I mean, I get it.”

“I’m really not worried about the president’s birth certificate,” he added. “It’s fun to poke at him a little bit and say, how about let’s see your grades and your birth certificate.”
