In an interview published in Parade today, Texas governor Rick Perry revealed that his favorite color is blue and that he has Pink Floyd on his iPod, but also that he and his pal Donald Trump may still have some reservations about where President Obama was born. Here, the relevant section of the transcript.
Governor, do you believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States?
I have no reason to think otherwise.
That’s not a definitive, “Yes, I believe he”—
Well, I don’t have a definitive answer, because he’s never seen my birth certificate.
But you’ve seen his.
I don’t know. Have I?
You don’t believe what’s been released?
I don’t know. I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night.
That came up.
So whip out those birth certificates, boys, and let’s see who’s the real American.
