Vivek Ramaswamy is facing a lot of criticism after it has been learned that he stole lines from former President Barak Obama.
To being the Milwahkee Fox News event Ramaswamy said that he is a “skinny guy with a funny last name” after he got his first question from moderator Bret Baier.
“So, first let me just address a question that’s on everybody’s mind at home tonight Who the heck is this skinny guy with a funny last name and what the heck is he doing in the middle of this debate stage?” Ramaswamy joked.
That is almost exactly how Obama introduced himself during a keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
“I’ll tell you, I’m not a politician, Bret, you’re right about that. I’m an entrepreneur. My parents came to this country with no money 40 years ago. I have gone on to found multibillion-dollar companies,” he continued.
In 2004, Obama called himself “a skinny kid with a funny name” when he was a candidate for the US Senate of Illinois.
Chris Christie called Ramaswamy out saying, “No, hold on, hold on. Enough. “I’ve had enough already tonight of a guy who sounds like ChatGPT.”
“He stands up here, and the last person in one of these debates, Bret, who stood in the middle of the stage and said, ‘What’s a skinny guy with an odd last name doing up here’ was Barack Obama,” he stated.
