Jay Carney Brings Up Birtherism In Response To Questions On Benghazi, IRS Scandals (VIDEO)

White House spokesman Jay Carney brought up birtherism while answering questions Tuesday, mocking reporters for repeatedly asking questions on a number of recent scandals.

Carney brought up questions on the IRS scandal and the talking points surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, comparing some reporters' inquiries to questions about President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

“You know, we could go down the list of questions -- we could say, what about the president’s birth certificate? Were that -- was that legitimate?” Carney said, according to the Washington Post.

Carney has made it clear in the past he's no fan of birther questions, once slamming real estate mogul Donald Trump as "ridiculous" for trying to reignite the debate over Obama's birth certificate.
