After exciting visits to England and Israel, Team Romney arrived in Poland:
As Romney was walking away from Pilsudski Square toward his vehicle, reporters asked him about his string of gaffes and whether he had any comment for Palestinians, some of whom took offense at the Republican’s suggestion Monday in Jerusalem that Israel’s economy is superior because of cultural advantages Israelis enjoy. Romney ignored the questions and got in his car.
But his traveling press secretary was furious.
“Kiss my ass; this is a holy site for the Polish people,” said aide Rick Gorka. “Show some respect.”
Gorka then told a reporter to “shove it.”
Gorka subsequently called a pair of reporters to apologize, saying he lost his cool.
“It was inappropriate,” Gorka said.
Apart from something completely ridiculous that just couldn’t possibly happen, like Romney arrested for smuggling crystal meth into the West Bank or running over the Queen of England with his car, could he have done worse on his big overseas trip than he did?
