White House Press Secretary Jay Carney deadpanned a pretty funny response to a question aboard Air Force One today. The press corps was en route to California, where President Obama is holding a couple fundraisers today in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Because they were going to California, Carney got a question about Obama’s perceived frequent fundraising with “showbiz types.” Here’s what he said in response to that question:
Q: Can I ask you about the California fundraisers, in particular? The President is getting a lot of heat over cavorting with showbiz types. Rush Limbaugh is referring to him as Barack Kardashian, can you believe. What is your response to that? (Laughter.)
MR. CARNEY: Two words — Donald Trump. Next question.
