“The View” ladies had a lot to say about the first official presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, on Monday when a guest co-host called for a birther movement to haunt the Canadian-born Republican’s campaign.
“He was not born in America, he was born in Canada, so how can he run for president?” comedian Michelle Williams said. “I’m a Ted Cruz birther — I want to see the birth certificate.”
Co-host Rosie Perez criticized the Texas senator for denying climate change and agreed with California Governor Jerry Brown’s criticism of Cruz as being unfit for the role of president during a “Meet the Press” appearance on Sunday.
Perez told conservative co-host Nicolle Wallace: “For you to say, as a Republican, him not being born in this country is the least of his problems is insane, insane; I love you darling, but with the birthers and all of that stuff, they made it a huge issue.”
Whoopi Goldberg suggested it’s not fun being on the receiving end of the birther movement, like President Obama has been, and chimed in: “I want to see your birth certificate.”
Cruz announced his run for president via Twitter on Sunday night, and formally announced his run Monday at Liberty University.
