Jay Carney Attacks Major Garrett’s Question to Obama on Iran: ‘Pompous’ and ‘Offensive’ (NewsBusters)
Sunday on Reliable Sources, Brian Stelter brought Jay Carney and John King to the program to discuss CBS reporter Major Garrett’s controversial question to President Obama about Iran. Garrett asked the president whether he could be content with the Iran deal knowing that there were four American hostages still being held in Iran. Carney hit Garrett, calling him “pompous” and deeming his question “offensive.” The long time White House press secretary for the Obama administration said “he understood why the president took offense,” noting it was a “poorly chosen word” on Garrett’s part.
