Tommy Thompson Says His Son Was Prompted To Make "Kenya" Remark By Audience Member

The former Wisconsin Governor claimed speaking to reporters in Milwaukee Tuesday night, his son was prompted by an audience to make remarks about sending President Obama back to Kenya. “If you look at the movie someone in the audience said and he repeated it” Thompson said. But the video, posted online Sunday evening, shows Thompson’s son making the remark before an audience member chimed in. A spokesman for the Thompson campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.
