White House Won't Defend Clinton "Deplorables" Insult

- September 12, 2016

At Today's White House Press Briefing, Josh Earnest Refused To Comment On Hillary Clinton's "Deplorables" Insult, And Sought To Distance The President, Saying "It's Not The President's Phrase." REPORTER: "It's important in the sense that the President is heading out on the trail for her tomorrow. Does he feel like he needs to do some damage control for the way the other side is jumping all over this?" JOSH EARNEST: "No, he doesn't. I think you can look forward to the President making a strong affirmative case about why he believes she would be an excellent President of the United States, and why he is forcefully supporting her campaign." REPORTER: "But her campaign has already, and pretty soon after, expressed regret over that. Doesn't that necessitate some kind of, I don't know damage control is the right phrase to use." EARNEST: "Again, I'll leave it to them to make decisions about the most effective way to run their campaign. The President's going to be in a mode tomorrow where he's enthusiastically advocating for her election." REPORTER: "But if they're expressing regret for her using either the phrase or quantifying it, does the President share that regret? Does he not have to?" EARNEST: "It's not the President's phrase. So again, she can describe the situation however she would like." (White House Press Briefing, 9/12/16)
