Last year the Washington Post “fact checker” Glenn Kessler, an Obamaphile of the first order, awarded President Obama “Four Pinocchios” for his lie about being able to “keep your health plan.” It looks like the President is well on his way to back to back awards.
We don’t know whether we should feel sorry for Josh Earnest or be embarrassed for his parents. The guy is obviously an Obama KoolAid drinker of the first order and he seems to actually believe the crap he spews on a regular basis.
If he was our son, we’d consider an exorcism. We’re more sure every day that the disembodied spirit of this guy has found a new home.
Josh, President Obama has had some spokesfolks who are just embarrassing, but you take the cake. When Glenn Kessler says this about you…
“With the passage of eight months, the president’s ‘JV’ comment looks increasingly untenable, so we can understand why the White House spokesman would try to suggest that what is now known as the Islamic State was not the subject of the conversation,” Kessler wrote.
“But in quoting from the transcript, Earnest provided a selective reading of the discussion. In particular, he failed to provide the context in which Obama made his remarks — the takeover of Fallujah by ISIS. That’s fairly misleading. The interviewer was certainly asking about ISIS when Obama answered with his ‘JV’ remarks.”
“Failed to provide the context…” That’s standard operating procedure for Obama and his spokesfolks. Earnest may be the worst of the bunch when it comes to Presidential Press Secretaries, but he can’t hold a candle to Jen Psaki at the State Department for just plain stupidity.
The one thing we will give both Josh & Jen is that they are examples of the administration’s transparency, they’re both transparently stupid.
