In a new interview, Texas governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry questions the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate.

Rick Perry

How “Republican” of you…


An excerpt of an exchange in a Parade magazine interview details his dinner with Donald Trump and the conversation regarding the birth status  that went down on the birth certificate issue:

I don’t know. Have I?

You don’t believe what’s been released?

That came up.


Perry said that Trump doesn’t believe the document released by the White House is “real.” Asked if he agrees with the sentiment, the Lone Star State Republican said, “I don’t have any idea. It doesn’t matter. He’s the president of the United States. He’s elected. It’s a distractive issue.”
