Chronic Underachiever Soledad O’Brien Really Wants to Discuss Birtherism- AGAIN

Ratings Queen Soledad O’Brien just continues to embarrass herself. Rather than interview the original birther, Barack Obama, she decided to quiz The Blaze’s Will Cain about a Romney comment, and the extremely relevant [to nobody but Soledad] opinions of Donald Trump.

According to O’Brien (and ABC News), Romney’s speech last night in Las Vegas included some secret code to birthers — mainly that he might be one of them. Here’s what Romney said:

“I was speaking with one of these business owners who owns a couple of restaurants in town. And he said, ‘You know, I’d like to change the constitution: I’d like to have a provision in the constitution that in addition to the age of the president and the citizenship of the president and the birthplace of the president being set by the constitution, I’d like it also to say that the president has to spend at least three years working in business before he could become President of the United States.’”
After playing the clip, O’Brien demanded Cain answer for the comment and her interpretation of it.

“Will Cain, what was that about?” she asked.

“I think that was about promoting businessmen as appropriate leaders of the United States,” Cain answered.

“Really?” O’Brien asked condescendingly. “You don’t think there was sort of anything interesting in talking about the constitution saying the age of the president and the birth place of the president and the citizenship of of the president, that long run-up to something about business which the Romney campaign campaign consistently says is their focus?”


Soledad to English translation: “PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us all focus on the birther issues so we can ignore any real news!!!!! It’s all I’m permitted to do! ” As if this couldn’t get any better, NH Gov. John Sununu then proceeded to win the internets at life when he lowered the boom on the issue of jobs:

“Why is CNN so fixated on this? Why don’t we talk about the jobs issue in this country?” he asked before adding, “It’s CNN that wants to bring it up. I don’t want to bring it up. Mitt Romney made it clear that he believes that President Obama was born in the U.S. You had Donald Trump on last night. And now you are asking the question this morning. It’s CNN’s fixation.”

I’m just kidding, I have no idea what he is referring to. According to The Ministry of Truth, jobs are a non-issue. There are also no other issues to discuss whatsoever. Way to keep all 5 of your viewers in the know, Soledad!

    I am surprised that ‘high cheekbones’ were not referenced while he was channeling his inner Warren…

    That is Drudge’s top headline. Prominently displays “$1bn for corp jet builders”. Ole Matt must have a grudge going against Obama that seems more than just politics.

    I’m gonna go with racism. Tis the only reason anyone hates the guy, since he is like the best president ever and stuff.

    Speaking of excellence in journalism:

    His wife died in 2010. Bless his heart, he was far more gracious than I would have been.

    bc had it perfect a while back when he said Soledad threw her panties on stage at the correspondents dinner. (if I remember correctly)

    If it wasn’t bc, or if it wasn’t Soledad, it is still a great image.

    I’m still laughing.

    You shouldn’t be a pastor anyway, since you clearly don’t own a Bible. Take the hint, dude.
