When asked by Fox News on Thursday whether the term “anchor baby” is “offensive,” as suggested by Hillary Clinton, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal deflected the question and explained what he does find offensive.
“You know, what I find offensive is Hillary Clinton, the left, when you look at those Planned Parenthood videos — they refuse to call them babies, they call it fetal tissue, they call them specimens,” Jindal said during a Fox News interview. “That’s what offensive.”
Jindal then made sure to note that Planned Parenthood is “protesting against my decision to cancel their Medicaid contract to make sure they are not getting taxpayer dollars in Louisiana.”
“What we're going to do is display those Planned Parenthood videos so people are reminded of that grotesque language,” he added. What's really offensive is the left refuses to say ‘babies.’ Instead they say fetal tissue, specimens. They are a bunch of science deniers.”
Clinton recently lectured Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush for using the term "anchor babies." She responded to him in a tweet, saying, "They're called babies."
The Jindal campaign posted the video of his Fox News appearance under the title, "They are called babies, Hillary."
