Gibbs: Romney Can’t Criticize Obama Tone When Supported By ‘Right-Wing Nutjob Donald Trump’

Speaking on Fox News Sunday this morning, Obama campaign strategist Robert Gibbs explained that the Obama campaign should not take any lectures from Mitt Romney over the “tone” of the campaign because the Republican candidate questions whether the president “believes in America” and welcomes support from “birther-in-chief, right-wing nutjob Donald Trump.

Host Chris Wallace asked Gibbs whether the recent controversial “chains” remark from VP Joe Biden was “playing the race card.”

Gibbs accused Wallace of being unfair and then proceeded to defend Biden’s remarks as a response to the Republican use of the word “unshackling.”

When Wallace played a recent clip of Romney accusing the president of running an “angry” campaign, Gibbs shot back: “I will not be lectured by Mitt Romney about the tone of the campaign.”

“He’s flown all over the country and said he’s not sure the president believes in America. He auctions off dinners for the birther-in-chief, right-wing nutjob Donald Trump who questions if the president was born in America.”

“I am happy to listen to charges,” Gibbs concluded, “but the lecture from Mitt Romney about the tone of the campaign is a pill too big to swallow.”
