Trey Gowdy Twists Natural Born Citizen Qualification to Support Marco Rubio

However, it was the follow-up question that generated the ignorance and heat. Mulch asked Gowdy, “When Marco Rubio said that his parents were born in another country, that doesn’t make him a natural born citizen, according to the Constitution. What would you say to that?”

“That issue has already been litigated,” said Gowdy.

Gowdy then went on to totally distort the idea of what was put to him and asked if John McCain was ineligible, something that has not been a part of being a natural born citizen. In case you miss the dodge there, Rubio’s parents were not citizens when he was born in the States. Of course, Rubio is an American citizen, but fails to meet the qualifications that even the founders recognized had to be present to be a natural born citizen.

When Gowdy was asked, “So, we don’t need a natural born citizen to be president?”

“It depends on what you mean by that?” he responded.

It depends on what you mean? My goodness, the ignorance is glaring and I will demonstrate just how much shortly, but Gowdy continued to demonstrate his ignorance of the natural born citizen issue.

When Mulch said that we know what the founders meant by it, Gowdy retorted, “No you don’t!”
