White House Spokesman Grilled Over Obama's Intel Lie
Sometimes the worst job in the world is being the president’s press secretary and having to explain your boss’s lies. Josh Earnest found himself in quite the uncomfortable spot defending Barack Obama on ISIL. Specifically, Obama’s blame game of throwing the intelligence community under the bus for underestimating the threat. ABC News White House correspondent Jon Karl spent seven minutes grilling Earnest about the president’s assertion, including reminding Earnest that Obama once referred to ISIL as the “JV team.” The White House spin on that particular comment is that Obama wasn’t talking about ISIL. Uh, yes he was.
