So the following video clip of President Obama speaking at Dreamworks earlier this week has gone viral:
This is the snippet of what he said:
As I was getting a tour of DreamWorks, I didn’t ask, but just looking at faces I could tell there were some folks who are here not because they were born here, but because they want to be here. And they bring extraordinary talents to the United States and that’s part of what makes America special.
He then said this, as the full video shows:
And that’s part of what makes America special. And that’s part of what, by the way, makes California special, because it’s always been this magnet of dreamers and strivers. And people coming from every direction saying to themselves, you know, if I work hard there I can have my piece of the American Dream.
Of course the President recovered, but we just wonder. What if this were Sen. Ted Cruz saying this or even worse, Rep. Steve King? How would people react?
