Krauthammer’s Take: WH Line on Tours Indicative of its ‘Arm’s Length Relationship With the Truth’


Charles Krauthammer tonight weighed in on the contradictory explanations offered by the president and his spokesman, Jay Carney, about who is responsible for canceling the White House tours in the wake of the sequester. “It’s yet another demonstration of the White House’s arm’s length relationship with the truth,” he said.

Krauthammer argued that the White House ceased operating tours in order to drive home the impact of the sequester and, in turn, to blame the Republicans, but “people understood this was a cynical move.”
