“I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury.” — Jay Carney
Carney: “I guess nothing rhymes with ‘Treasury.’ Because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it.”
Reporter: So, are you saying the President did not have a conversation with Jay-Z?
Carney: “I am absolutely saying that the White House, from the President on down, had nothing to do with anybody’s travel to Cuba. That is something the Treasury handles. OFAC, Treasury, these are tough words to rhyme.
Reporter: [not audible]
Carney: “It’s a song, Donovan, the president did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.”
