Tony Perkins Gets Debunked On His Own Show

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins thought he was being quite clever by hosting a program about what he called the “Obama phone,” even bringing Sen. David Vitter, of all people, onto his “pro-family” radio show.

Perkins alleged that the Obama administration offered low-income people access to cell phones in order to swing the election for the President.

However, as Vitter admitted during the interview, the program to increase cellphone coverage began in 2008, the year before Obama became president.

That’s right; the Bush administration started the “Obama phone.”
