Jake Tapper & AP Drill Gibbs on Meaningless Barack Obama $100 Million Budget Cut (Video)

Graphic from Heritage.

Jake Tapper of ABC News and Jennifer Loven of the Associated Press nail Robert "Peter Griffin" Gibbs on the laughable $100 million proposed budget cuts by Barack Obama.

Gibbs, in typical snarky elitist form, trys to make light of the situation.

Newsbusters reports:

It must be hard to keep a straight face when you report that the President of United States going to cut $100 million from a $3.5 trillion budget and then say he is serious about cutting government spending.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs couldn't pull it off. In the White House's April 20 press briefing, Gibbs was asked by Associated Press reporter Jennifer Loven why the $100-million target was so small and she even accused him of making a joke about it.

"I'm being completely sincere that only in Washington, D.C. is $100 million not a lot of money," Gibbs said. "It is where I'm from. It is where I grew up. And I think it is for hundreds of millions of Americans."
