At Thursday’s White House press briefing, Fox News reporter Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney if President Obama’s remarks about Republicans “holding a gun to the head of the American people” by threatening a government shutdown were wise given September’s mass shooting at the Naval Yard in Washington, D.C.
Carney defended the rhetoric that Henry himself had jokingly said during a press conference earlier this week of Republicans, “Let them shoot each other.” Video of Henry’s comments below:
