They sat around in colluded on how to get message this without telling the president's.
And the president just read about it are you buying what Carney is trying to -- out.
This -- it this administration is as transparent as a burqa.
Right now that the double higher -- it was supposed to be -- ways we veto anything about it now we find out.
That it's more choreographed and cats I mean did that that question was planted get a discussion before they -- that question.
It's it's incredible and in that everybody keeps saying how they don't know what they supposed to be the best and the brightest with the Republican supposed to be stupid and the Democrats we're gonna be so Smart.
But it turns out.
There's there is dumb -- -- dumber than Republicans and no one really wants to get to the bottom of this because it will be the bottom of their misdeeds to be just wanna push it off.

If the lap dog media ever decides to get off Robert Wright and Obama's name is it how he got it did then that means that there are thirty or thirty Marshall money ten very quickly by -- getting your bid but taking the fifth.
I'm not sure she's just protecting yourself.
I think she's gonna close Larry should it take the fifth tomorrow to -- to protect yourself obviously but also to protect -- -- the White House or maybe she's afraid of the backlash from the White House if she doesn't.
I was your -- your assumption here than as of five follow your reasoning as corrupt diseases.
