House press secretary Josh Earnest had to dodge when pressed by the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe about whether or not Barack Obama would endorse Vice President Joe Biden if he ran for president.

“Does President Obama want Joe Biden to jump in the race for president, and will he support his vice president?” host Mika Brzezinski asked Earnest.

“Of course he will,” co-host Joe Scarborough cut in. “If your vice president is running for president, Mika, you support the vice president, right? That seems like an obvious answer.”
