White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest lost his composure mid-interview when it was alleged that Barack Obama might not have actually been the most transparent president in history.
This would be due to the amount of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests that have been filed by journalists, only to be denied by his administration.
“If this constituency — journalists — are gonna be effective advocates for the issue that they care about, they need to remember that they have a responsibility not just to criticize those who are not living up to their expectations,” whined Earnest.
“Any activist will tell you that the way that you get people to support you and to support your cause is to give them credit when the credit is due, to applaud them when they do the thing that you want them to be doing.” (He must be getting lessons from the most famous community activist of all time – Obama!)
“Given the fact that President Obama has been the most transparent president in American history, and given the fact that he has not gotten much, if any, credit for that from journalists, what incentive does Donald Trump, who I think has a predisposition against transparency when you consider the way he handled his tax returns, what argument does anyone have that there is an incentive for him to be more transparent?” he added.
Watch Earnest meltdown on camera:
At this point, the Obama Administration ought to just drop the line about transparency, because it’s so farfetched. Barry would probably have more luck convincing people that he has been the LEAST transparent president in American history.
Won’t it be nice when we no longer have to listen to Josh Earnest constantly pushing a worn out agenda for Barack Obama?
