WASHINGTON — White House Press Secretary Jay Carney mocked reporters for asking him about reports that Beyoncé lip-synced through the National Anthem at Monday’s ceremonial inauguration.
“I actually have no idea what’s true and what’s not,” Carney said, noting the conflicting reports about what transpired. “I’m glad you guys are foused on the important issues of the day.”
Carney said he has not spoken to Obama about the controversy, when asked if the President — as the person closest to the performer — noticed if she wasn’t actually singing live. He referred comment to the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies and the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
