President Mocks Fox News Reporter’s Question About Gas Prices

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Fox News’ alarmist coverage of rising gas prices extended all the way to the White House briefing room on Tuesday. During President Obama’s first solo news conference since November, Fox News White House Reporter Ed Henry asked the president if he actually wants gas prices to go even higher. Obama mocked Henry’s question.“Ed, just from a political perspective, do you think the President of the United States, going into reelection, wants gas prices to go up even higher? … Is there anybody here who thinks that makes a lot of sense?”
