White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about the current Donald Trump/Ted Cruz kerfuffle about Cruz's "eligibility" to be elected president given he was born in Canada.
For the record - yes, Sen. Cruz is a natural-born American since his mother was an American.
Earnest gets a bit of a smile here as he comments on the possible irony of the situation given the years of ridiculous questions about President Obama's birth certificate.
Says Earnest, “It would be quite ironic if after 7 or 8 years of drama around the president’s birth certificate if Republican primary voters were to choose Senator Cruz as their nominee. Somebody who actually wasn’t born in the United States and only 15 months ago renounced his Canadian citizenship.”
On another note - Mr. Earnest is quite the good looking guy, no? :)
