Video || Henry Reminds Earnest that Obama Called Bush “Unpatriotic”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday he felt “sorry” for Rudy Giuliani, who called President Obama “unpatriotic.” That is, Giuliani is merely pathetic, in the White House view.

Is the White House Making Nice with Ed Henry?

Poor Ed Henry. I’ve worked with him for years at the White House, and I have no idea what his political sympathies are. And yet, since he departed CNN to take up residence at at Fox News earlier this year, he’s been treated by the White House  like he was president of the John Birch Society. In the midst of a heated briefing room discussion
