httpv://youtu.be/zrPabW2C6fM White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refused to answer questions on Thursday when asked about President Obama’s position on the proposed legislative repeal of marriage equality in New Hampshire. A reporter from the Washington Blade repeatedly questioned Carney about the president’s position but Carney remained evasive. “I honestly haven’t spoken to him about that state issue, so I would have to take the question and see if there’s anything I can get back to you,” Carney said.
Pressed again on whether Obama’s position that states like New Hampshire should decide the marriage issue for themselves means that he would support the legislature if they decide to repeal marriage equality, Carney once again refused to answer the question directly. “Again, that’s an ‘if-if’ question and I haven’t had the conversation with him or with any of the senior staff about it,” Carney said. “So let me take that and see if we can get a response to you.” Despite having said that, the White House did not respond to a follow-up email request from the Washington Blade to provide an answer.
So we are supposed to believe that neither President Obama nor ANY of his senior staff have EVER had even a single conversation with the White House press secretary about what the president’s position on the repeal of marriage equality is, or should be? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
