“Birther” Rep. Berman Loses Debate
CNN’s Anderson Cooper debated and destroyed Republican Texas state representative Leo Berman who repeated internet “birther” rumors, ignored facts and questioned President Barack Obama’s citizenship.
Rep. Leo Berman has introduced a bill that would require any candidate for president or vice president of the United States to provide his or her birth certificate to the Texas secretary of state.
“This bill is necessary because we have a president whom the American people don’t know whether he was born in Kenya or some other place,” Leo Berman, who has represented the 6th District of Texas since 1999, told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
“I don’t know anything about President Obama,” Berman told Cooper Monday.
“There’s a certificate of live birth, which is what the state of Hawaii sends out,” Cooper explained. “Why isn’t that good enough?”
