What Prompted GOP Rep. To Tell Town Hall ‘I Don’t Give A Sh*t’?

That birther issue just won’t die. The latest Republican congressman to deal with the fringest of fringe issues is Markwayne Mullin, a first-termer from Oklahoma, who was confronted by a self-described “birther princess” during a town hall. After Mullin dismissed it as a “dead issue,” the woman approached him and insisted he needs to take this seriously. In response, Mullin told her, “Honestly, I don’t even give a shit.”

Mullin made it clear he’s not “defending” Obama, but likened what he sees from birthers to Christians on street corners “screaming scripture at cars.” The woman continued to rail against Obama, calling him a “fraud” who considers himself above the law.

Mullin continuously told the crowd, “We lost that argument,” and ThinkProgress, which caught the exchange, interpreted that to mean Mullin is a birther. Mullin’s communications director responded that Mullin did no such thing, and in addition, didn’t say “I don’t even give a shit,” but rather said, “Don’t even give it to me.”
