A response given by former White House national security spokesman Tommy Vietor when asked if he made a change to the White House talking points on Benghazi is taking on a life of it’s own.
Fox News’ Brett Baier asked Vietor if he changed the word “attacks” to “demonstrations,” and after saying he did not remember, Vietor added, “Dude, this was like two years ago.”
The phrase has since inspired some real funny responses from Twitter users, who applied it in a similar manner to past events.
