The son of former Republican Governor and current GOP senate candidate Tommy Thompson delivered an off base attack at the President on Sunday.
Jason Thompson was speaking at a Republican Party brunch in Wisconsin, when he made a reference to the presidential election and implied that Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen:
“We have the opportunity to send President Obama back to Chicago — or Kenya,” he said. A female attendee then added, “we are taking donations for that Kenya trip.”
After the attack, the Thompson campaign sent an email to BuzzFeed apologizing for the comment.
“The Governor has addressed this with his son, just like any father would do. Jason Thompson said something he should not have, and he apologizes.”
The video of the speech was posted on YouTube. Watch it yourself above!
