China mapNJ-3 District Congressman wants to know “Who Came to the US From China?”

Congressman Jon Runyan (NJ-3) is launching an investigation of President Obama for refusing to “reveal who came from China” for a state visit.

“The only thing I heard from the White House was a question, ‘Who came  from China?’. This administration needs to be more open with the American people regarding foreign affairs,” said Runyan. “This is outrageous.”

Last week, the Obama administration issued an update of the presidential schedule from last winter to Speaker of the House John Boehner, and he passed the information onto Runyan in a phone conversation. Here is the transcript, obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act:

Runyan: Who came  from China?

Speaker Boehner: Hu from China.

Runyan: That’s what I want to find out.

Speaker Boehner: That’s what I said: Hu came from China.

Rep. Runyan: Are you the Speaker?

Speaker Boehner: Yes.

Rep. Runyan: And you don’t know this Chinaman’s name?

Speaker Boehner: Well, I should.

Rep. Runyan: Well, then who from China?

Speaker Boehner: Yes.

Rep. Runyan: I mean the fellow’s name.

Speaker Boehner: Hu.

Rep. Runyan: The guy from China.

Speaker Boehner: Hu.

Rep. Runyan: The Chinese guy dining with Obama.

Speaker Boehner: Hu.

Rep. Runyan: The guy eating in the White House…

Speaker Boehner: Hu had dinner with Obama!

Rep. Runyan: I’m asking YOU who had dinner with Obama

Speaker Boehner: That’s the man’s name.

Rep. Runyan: That’s who’s name?

Speaker Boehner: Yes.

Rep. Runyan: Well go ahead and tell me.

Speaker Boehner: That’s it.

Rep. Runyan: That’s who?

Speaker Boehner: Yes.

PAUSE

Rep. Runyan: Does THIS guy have a birth certificate?

Speaker Boehner: I should think so.

Rep. Runyan: Who was born in China?

Speaker Boehner: Absolutely.

Rep. Runyan: Who’s having dinner with Obama?

Speaker Boehner: That’s right.

Rep. Runyan: What’s the Chinese guy’s name on his birth certificate?

Speaker Boehner: No, Watt was the name of the Secretary of the Interior under Reagan.

Rep. Runyan: I’m not asking who served under Reagan.

Speaker Boehner: Hu never served under Reagan! I am telling you, Hu is the president of China!

Rep. Runyan: Look, All I’m trying to find out is the Chinese guy’s name.

Speaker Boehner: Hu! Hu is the president of China! Hu ate with Obama!

Rep. Runyan: Who is the president of China? Who is eating with Obama?

Speaker Boehner: That is the first intelligent thing you have said.

Rep. Runyan: I don’t even know what I am talking about! If this guy leaves China, he leaves someone else in charge.

Speaker Boehner: I should say he does. The Premier.

Rep. Runyan: Can tell me the name of the Chinese pPremier?

Speaker Boehner: Do want the name of the Chinese Premier? Wen.

Rep. Runyan: You can tell me now.

Speaker Boehner: I will tell you: Wen.

Rep. Runyan: You’ll tell me when?

Speaker Boehner: I just told you, Wen.

Rep. Runyan: Look, all I wanna know is who is the Chinese Premier?

Speaker Boehner: No, Hu had a state dinner with Obama.

Rep. Runyan: The dinner was for who?

Speaker Boehner: Right. Now you’ve got it!

Rep. Runyan: I don’t even know what I am talking about! And this is taking too long.

Speaker Boehner: What did you say?.

Rep. Runyan: Long! Too long!

Speaker Boehner: Loong? Loong’s the leader of Singapore! He’s did not come for dinner!
