Romney's overseas trip was marked by another questionable quote from one of the candidate's aides on Tuesday when spokesperson Rick Gorka rebuffed journalists' questions for the candidate by telling them to "Kiss my ass."
Romney was in Poland, walking back to his vehicle from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw’s Pilsudski Square. Gorka continued, "This is a holy site for the Polish people, show some respect" He then told another reporter to "shove it." Gorka later called the reporters to apologize, the Washington Post reports.
CNN has a transcript and footage of the tiff, which unfolded as follows:
CNN: "Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?"
NYT: "Governor Romney do you have a statement for the Palestinians?"
Washington Post: "What about your gaffes?"
NYT: "Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?"
CNN: "Governor Romney just a few questions sir, you haven't taken but three questions on this trip from the press!"
Gorka: "Show some respect"
NYT: "We haven't had another chance to ask a question ..."
Gorka: "Kiss my ass. This is a Holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect."
