Former White House spokesman Jay Carney admitted on CNN that President Obama did indeed flip-flop on executive amnesty.
Host Anderson Cooper asked Carney for his opinion, after showing a series of clips of Obama denouncing executive amnesty, “So, I mean, other than his frustration, what has changed? I mean, he’s a constitution scholar. What has changed that allows him to do this?”
“I think if he could have those words back, especially the first clip where he specifically talked about suspending deportations,” Carney said, “that is literally what he is doing today.”
Carney went on saying, “In later instances including when I was there he would speak carefully about what he could not do as president. He can’t change the law. He can’t provide a path to citizenship.”
