President Obama Jokingly Calls Romney a ‘Bullsh*tter’ in Rolling Stone Interview
In an Oval Office interview, Rolling Stone magazine reporter Douglas Brinkley told President Obama that his six year old likes him, to which Obama responded, “kids have good instincts.” President Obama then implied that kids have a sixth sense regarding these things and can, therefore, weed out the real from the fake.
An excerpt from the interview:
“We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview … on the morning of October 11th. … As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. … [S]he said, ‘Tell him: You can do it.’ Obama grinned. … ‘You know, kids have good instincts,’ Obama offered. ‘They look at the other guy and say, “Well, that’s a bullsh*tter, I can tell.’”
This is not the first time that Romney has faced the charge that he is inauthentic. Dur, Early on, Romney described himself as “severely conservative”, but in his third and final debate with President Obama, Romney agreed with Obama on almost everything, leaving voters to question whether Romney has any core principles left.
But would you agree with Obama that kids, like animals, have a sort of sixth sense about things? Can they pick up on aspects of human behavior that adults miss?
