During a press briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said it's "outrageous" to blame President Trump for the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue or the package bombs that were mailed to high-profile Democrats.
President Trump called out ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl for what he deemed a "stupid question" at an appearance alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the White House.
Fireworks were flying between White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and ABC reporter Jonathan Karl over the latest Benghazi revelations. At the press briefing, Carney said the newly released White House emails on prepping then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice for the Sunday talk shows were not about the Benghazi attack.
As the Benghazi story heats up, reporters grilled Press Secretary Jay Carney at the White House on Friday. ABC reported that the CIA’s talking points on the Benghazi attack were revised 12 times.
Bill O’Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo, “What Jay Carney attempted to do today was to convince the world that there was initial confusion about who attacked the American ambassador and killed him, and that the White House was acting responsibly in avoiding placing direct blame.”
In the most entertaining moment of today's White House news conference, ABC News' Jonathan Karl asked President Obama whether he "still has the juice" to push his remaining agenda through Congress, citing the Senate's failure to pass gun control legislation and the president's failure to convince Congress to avoid sequestration cuts.
The president chuckled at Karl's question, joking, "Well if you put it that way Jonathan, maybe I should just pack up and go home. Golly."
