Gibbs Gets Wake Up Call Honors: Mr. President, You’re A Winner

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs did the early morning duty today to let President Obama he’d won the Nobel Peace Prize.

A senior administration official tells TPMDC Gibbs called the White House just before 6 a.m. and woke Obama to share the news.

“The president was humbled to be selected by the committee,” the official says.

There will be more coming out of the White House reacting to the news today.

Worth noting, Gibbs also had pre-dawn wake-up call duties during Obama’s first trip abroad, telling Obama that North Korea had fired a test missile.
