Pelosi on birther comments: GOP lawmakers have said worse things than Trump

“None of the things that he has said (are things) that members of Congress haven’t said over and over again on the Republican side — not all of them,” the California Democrat said on CNN’s “New Day.”

“You think the Republicans in Congress are following his lead?” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked.

“No, I think he’s following theirs,” Pelosi responded. “There are worse statements made by members of Congress over a long period of time that they’d tried to implement into law.”

Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.
