ABC News host Martha Raddatz on Sunday tried to give Rick Perry a chance to prove that he isn’t as crazy as he sounded in a recent interview, but all efforts failed and she had to shut him down four minutes into the discussion.
Last week, the Republican governor from Texas spoke to Fox News, charging Obama with conspiring to flood the US with undocumented immigrants.
We either have an incredibly inept administration, or they’re in on this somehow or another. I mean I hate to be conspiratorial, but I mean how do you move that many people from Central America across Mexico and then into the United States without there being a fairly coordinated effort?”
Raddatz replied, “Governor, do you really believe there’s some sort of conspiracy to get people into the United States by the federal government, by the Obama administration?”
Perry took that opportunity to dig himself in deeper.
When I have written a letter that is dated May of 2012, and I have yet to have a response from this administration, I will tell you they either are inept or don’t care, and that is my position. We have been bringing to the attention of President Obama and his administration since 2010, he received a letter from me on the tarmac… I have to believe that when you do not respond in any way, that you are either inept, or you have some ulterior motive of which you are functioning from.”
According to the former presidential candidate, his theories were justified by the fact that Obama did not deploy drones to the Mexican border.
Unless we secure our southern border, this is going to continue to be a massive amount of individuals that are coming to the United States. And, frankly, we don’t have a place to house them as it is. And if we have a major event, a hurricane that comes in to the Gulf Coast, I don’t have a place to be housing people who are displaced because this administration…”
Raddatz then cut him off and abruptly ended the interview. Back to our regularly scheduled program.
