Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s European tour took a turn for the worst earlier today when one of his TOP aides told reporters to “kiss my ass.”
Romney’s traveling press secretary made the shocking comment while they were visiting the Tomb of the Polish Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw on Tuesday.
According to Politico, American reporters, who are following Romney on his European tour, felt frustrated that the presidential candidate had refused to take questions from the press so as he and staff were walking back to their waiting car they began shouting questions at him from behind the rope line.
A CNN reporter shouted: ‘Gov Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?’ Then a New York Times reporter shouted: “Gov. Romney do you have a statement for the Palestinians?”
While still walking to his car, a Washington Post reporter shouted: “What about your gaffes?” while another reporter shouted, “Gov. Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?
Still no answering any of their questions, CNN reporter then shouted at Romney: “Just a few questions sir, you haven’t taken but three questions on this trip from the press!” and that’s when an angry Gorka turned around and told them “Kiss my ass, this is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.” He then told Politico’s reporter Jonathan Martin to “shove it.”
This is the third known embarrassing moment for the former Massachusetts governor during his European tour.
Last week, he was booed in England after he suggested that London was not ready to host the Olympic Games and yesterday, he drew criticism when he said Israel’s economic superiority to the Palestinian territories was a matter of “culture.”
