Skip to comments.Obama Is ‘Genuinely Concerned’ About Lack of Progress in Washington: Earnest
Posted on 04/01/2017 6:23:16 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said his old boss, former President Barack Obama, is worried about a lack of progress in Washington D.C.
"[He's] viewing it from a distance, where he's writing a book, but I think that he's genuinely concerned," Earnest said on MSNBC on Friday.
Earnest said Obama sees the White House and the federal government as "as an institution that could be used to advance the interest of the American public," and a lack of forward movement is a concern, "not just for the former president of the United States but Americans of both parties across the country."
With regards to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes who has been accused of colluding with the White House on matters related to the committee's investigation of the Trump campaign and Russia Earnest said the current administration should be disturbed by how that meeting has been perceived.
"For the White House, I do think they have to be concerned because it looks like they're trying to launder this information through the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Community again to try to exonerate or at least defend the tweets of the president of the United States," Earnest said.
"What's problematic for the American people is that you have senior intelligence officials on the National Security Council that are not pouring over intelligence reports trying to figure out how to keep the country safe they're poring over intelligence reports trying to figure out how they can defend an ultimately defenseless tweet that included a baseless accusation from the president of the United States," Earnest added.

obama never cared about the American people
Earnest lies for food.
Shut up,Obama,you are yesterdays news.
“Lack of progress?”
Like Obama wants movement out of the Trump Administration?
I would have been delighted if progress had been stalled under Obama. Instead, we got ACA, open borders (and DACA), enhanced racial and ethnic strife, a hyperactive EPA, and Common Core. That’s progress(ivism)!
Little Quota Boy is concerned only about concealing his silly little past.
Listening to him, one concludes Evelyn Farkas graduated from The Josh Earnest School of How To Make an A** of Yourself on MSNBC.
This POS used 8 years to screw America...and now he is worried about the lack of forward progress in less than 90 days.
I know he is on some Island somewhere, and I am hoping there is no way off for Boy Wonder...but where is Mooch? Getting an add on?
The headline itself is phony. It says Obama is “genuinely concerned,” but the article says Earnest THINKS that’s what Obama is thinking. I’d venture to guess that Obama hasn’t even spoken to any of these people — maybe even his own family — since he fled the country.
Well, I hope Obama is today’s news again soon.
If he’s as concerned about Washington as he was about ISIS, well, big whoop.
Is this Earnest's first lie in his new job?
All the way from Fiji. Without his wife, or daughters I guess. He seems real worried.
FUJE...only concern Odungo has is he’s running out of KY lube
Upset about lack of progress =upset about lack of destruction.
Go Trump! MAGA!
Writing a book puzzles me. Doesn’t he and other Dems have an army of ghost writers for that sort of thing?
Josh Earnest is placed to be the Obama mouthpiece at MSNBC even after Obama is out of office.
No difference from when Earnest was Obama’s disgusting stooge mouthpiece when Obama was in office,
In other words he’s upset that the meme didn’t take
