Tapper trolls Spicer with birther reference
By Paulina Firozi -
CNN’s Jake Tapper took a jab at Sean Spicer after the White House press secretary slammed The New York Times for incorrectly reporting his birth place.
"I imagine it must be really annoying when someone puts out false info about where you were born. Must really bother you!!,” Tapper tweeted, with a “cc” to President Obama's Twitter handle. His tweet is a reference to the conspiracy theory President Trump shared before entering the White House that Obama was not born in the United States.
In September, then-Republican presidential nominee Trump declared that he believed Obama was born in the U.S., after first questioning the president’s citizenship in 2011.Spicer on Saturday complained that the Times “can’t even get where I was born right and failed to ask.”
The Times earlier had published a report, “Trump Ruled the Tabloid Media. Washington is a Different Story,” that included a reference to Spicer being “New England born.”
Glenn Thrush, a reporter for the Times, tweeted that he had reached out to the press secretary twice, with no response. Spicer says those emails did not include a question about his birth place.
The Times has since corrected the article.
"Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to Sean Spicer’s upbringing. He was New England bred, having been raised in Rhode Island; he was not 'New England born.' (Mr. Spicer would not go on the record and give the correct facts pertaining to his birthplace.),” the correction reads.
