Here‘s a line of questioning you don’t hear everyday, let alone it being asked of a White House Press Secretary in reference to the Commander in Chief.
During what otherwise would have been a typical White House press briefing Monday, Jay Carney fielded a real curve ball from World Net Daily reporter Lester Kinsolving, a man known for asking outlandish questions. The topic? Whether President Obama approves of bestiality in the military.
Kinsolving was referring to a recent Senate vote repealing sodomy and bestiality bans in the military.
The odd, if not uproarious exchange went something like this:
KINSOLVING: The Family Research Council and CNS News both reported a 93-to-7 U.S. Senate vote to approve a defense authorization bill that, quote, “includes a provision which not only repeals the military law on sodomy, but also repeals the military ban on sex with animals, or bestiality.” Does the commander-in-chief approve or disapprove of bestiality in our armed forces?
CARNEY: I don’t have any comment on–I don’t have any comment on that. Let me go to another question.
KINSOLVING: Does the President believe this will be approved by all animal support groups, such as –
CARNEY: Let’s get to something more serious.
Perhaps what Kinsolving was most likely trying to do was call attention to the fact that valuable senate resources were spent on what many would call a frivolous, not to mention absurd provision in the first place.
Carney, who is often noted for his quick comebacks and ability to turn a phrase with even the most hostile reporters, clearly was not amused in this instance. Still, one wonders how he managed to refrain from even cracking a smile.
