ABC White House reporter Jonathan Karl wanted to know today if maybe it was a “mistake” for President Obama to continue on his merry way Thursday amid the downing of the Malaysian Airlines jet over Ukraine. You know, like heading to the Charcoal Pit in Delaware to wolf down a cheeseburger and then flying off to fundraisers in New York.
Well, suggested White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, the president can run the world and eat cheeseburgers at the same time!
Earnest declared that Obama will do the very same thing this week. Because this president is a man of principle, a man of constancy, and he will not be deterred from utter unseriousness.
