The big news last week was that nearly one-fifth of Americans still believe that President Obama is Muslim. He’s not, but he’s keeping that story in the news by addressing it Sunday in New Orleans. Via the AP:
In an interview broadcast on “NBC Nightly News,” the president blamed the confusion over his religious beliefs on “a network of misinformation that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly.”
“I’m not gonna be worrying too much about whatever rumors are floating on out there,” Obama said Sunday. “If I spend all my time chasing after that, then I wouldn’t get much done.”
Obama certainly has had to deal with a lot of insane rumors.
