Reporters sat in disbelief as White House spokesman Josh Earnest tried to spin the results of Tuesday’s elections.
The reporters gasped and then laughed at Josh Earnest trying to spin the results of Tuesday’s shellacking.
Reporter: Would you say Tuesday night was a big loss for Democrats?
Josh Earnest: Well, uh, again. In terms of the likes of punditry and analysis…
Reporters: (Gasps) It’s not punditry. It’s a real question… Cuz you guys spin it. I understand why you’re spinning it.
Earnest: There’s lots of people who get paid a lot more money than I do who are responsible for offering up analysis and spinning elections and I’m not going to do that…
Reporter: So you’re saying this is good for Democrats?
Earnest: No, that’s not what I’m saying. (Audience laughs)
Reporter: So you can say it’s good for Republicans but you can’t say it’s good or bad for Democrats?
Earnest: It is. It is. I’m certainly disappointed with the results of the election.
