Earnest Fires a Round at ‘Racist’ GOP

The Obama administration clearly plans to make race chum out of GOP House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. In a story that was evidently too good to check, Scalise was misleadingly accused of speaking to a group affiliated with former KKK leader David Duke in 2002. Never mind that he merely spoke at an earlier time in the same venue and couldn’t control who attended his speech. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest issued a not-so-veiled shot at the GOP, saying that, while Republicans could decide whether or not to keep Scalise in the House leadership team, “[T]here’s no arguing that who the Republicans decide to elevate into a leadership position says a lot about what the conference’s priorities and values are.” It also says a lot that Obama sat in the pews listening to and being mentored by a repulsive racist by the name of Jeremiah Wright. But Earnest evidently didn’t see the connection.
