Geez, this is pathetic even for Jay Carney. Pretend scandals? Really? We bet the family of those murdered in Benghazi or those targeted by Obama’s IRS think they’re phony scandals.
White House press secretary Jay Carney on Wednesday defended President Obama’s planned pivot to economic issues, arguing it was time to shift the discussion in Washington “beyond the phony scandals that have consumed so much attention here.”
“He’s focused on the economy,” said Carney on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He’s not focused on pretend scandals.”
When on today’s Morning Joe, Obama spokesman Jay Carney had the chutzpah to call the IRS mess a “phony scandal,”Joe Scarborough ripped into him, calling Carney out for using “talking points,” instructing him to “answer the question” and informing Carney that “I’m not somebody you talk down to from your podium.” Ouch!
Meanwhile, who’s up for another phony scandal?
