Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, said that President Obama’s recent slip about the lack of a plan for ISIS was a “wince-able moment.”
Joe Scarborough asked Gibbs if there are oxygen masks in the press secretary’s office for when the President says something like he did last week about “not having a strategy for ISIS,” so everyone can take a deep breath from one before going to talk to him.
“I think whenever you have to go out next and say ‘what somebody meant to say’ or ‘what somebody was trying to say’ means you’re trying to explain that wince-able moment,” Gibbs said. “Unfortunately, there are not oxygen masks and there’s no one to tell you fasten your seat belt because there is turbulence in the area.”
