MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: Obama Never Said He Went Skeet Shooting – New Republic Editor Who Conducted Interview: Actually, Yes He Did…
Mitchell gives pathetic hacks a bad name.
How big of an Obama lapdog is Andrea Mitchell? Even bigger than ardent Obama fan Chris Hughes. The Facebook co-founder, who bought
the New Republic last year, recently scored an interview with President Obama that has been criticized for its generally soft questioning. But during an appearance on Mitchell’s MSNBC show today, even Hughes was more candid about the prez than Mitchell.
When it came to the President’s statement during the interview that at Camp David “we do skeet shooting all the time,” Mitchell claimed “he didn’t say that he was skeet shooting, but he does say that it’s one of the practices at Camp David by his guests.” Responding, Hughes effectively contradicted her: “Frank Foer, the editor of New Republic, actually asked him point blank ’have you ever fired a gun?’ And in response he said “yeah, we go skeet shooting all the time up at Camp David. He and his guests. Which is news to us and news to a lot of people.”
