Press pool erupts; cant keep straight face at State Dept. double talk

Powered by Topple

It was impossible to get a straight answer to a simple question out of deputy State Department spokesperson Marie Harf Monday. The process went from the bizarre to the downright laughable.

The question, as posed by a State Department reporter was, “There was a meeting scheduled to take place today between the Israelis, Palestinians, and possibly with an American – with Americans present at some or all in Jericho. Did that meeting go ahead?”

A simple question, requiring a simple “yes” or “no” answer, yet none was available. All Harf could do was to stick to the script that was obviously given her.

Watch to the exchange, and be prepared for some serious head-scratching. Video courtesy of Breitbart News.
