Mitt Romney Aide Tells Reporter: “Kiss My a*s!”
Mitt Romney is not a very interesting guy. But what is interesting are the people he keeps in his camp. This week, Romney continued his effort to offend the entire world by allowing his press secretary to fly off the handle when being addressed by the press in Poland.
Romney was in Warsaw, leaving the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier when some reporters started to ask difficult questions. That’s when Romney Aide Rick Gorka got incredibly defensive, telling reporters to “Have some respect,” noting that Romney hadn’t yet left the tourist area.
After that, a journalist noted to Gorka that they’d not yet had a chance to ask a question, to which he replied “Kiss my a*s. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.” Right after that, Gorka told a Politico reporter to “shove it.”
This continues Romney’s disastrous tour overseas, during which reporters have only been allowed to ask three questions. You have to wonder how he’s going to be treated by the press once he returns to the states, since it’s not a good idea to show such blatant disrespect.
Greta Van Susteren wrote, “There has been no press access to Governor Romney since we landed in Poland. We (press) are in a holding pattern (I can’t help but feel a bit like the press is a modified petting zoo since we are trapped in a bus while Polish citizens take pictures of us.)”
Even Republicans are highly disappointed with Romney’s tour of Europe. It has thus far been a complete disaster, and a senior Republican Strategist said this to the Washington Post: “I find this entire trip borderline lunacy,” adding, “Why on earth is he seeking to improve his foreign policy cred when there will not be a single vote cast on that subject?”
You have to wonder what Romney is trying to prove with this trip overseas. It can’t help his chances to win the election. With aides flying off the handle in this way, it only makes things worse.
