John Edwards continued his anti-poverty tour today, a day after the National Enquirer affair/child story came out. He was in Houston today and was finally asked about it, according to this account in the alternative paper Houston Press:
At a press conference, no one seemed anxious to ask about it. So we did.
At first Edwards seemed to pretend not to know what we were talking about, so we specified that we meant the Enquirer story.
“That’s tabloid trash,” he said. “They’re full of lies. I’m here to talk about helping people.”
