So … anchor babies, right?
It's an offensive term being bandied about by Donald [t]Rump and Jeb "I’m the smart one" Bush on the campaign trail recently. And when Jeb was asked about the use of the term and he responded with what other term might he use, the Clinton campaign replied with a near perfect Tweet:
‘How about calling them ‘babies,’ or ‘children’ or ‘American citizens.?
Until yesterday when a reporter asked Jeb to clarify his remarks and he replied:
“No. Look, as I said in Spanish, my background, my life, uhh, the fact that I'm immersed in the immigrant experience...this is, this is ludicrous for the Clinton Campaign and others to suggest that somehow I'm using a derogatory term. What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed, where there's organized efforts, and frankly, it's more related to Asian people coming into our country, having children in that organized efforts, taking advantage of a noble concept with birthright citizenship. I support the fourteenth amendment. Nothing about what I've said should be viewed as derogatory towards immigrants at all. This is all how politics plays, and by the way, I think we need to take a step back and chill out a little bit as it relates to the political correctness...”
Oh, so you meant that offensive term only applies to Asians.
Yeah, that’s okay … much better. Asshat.
