Reporter Confronts President about Socialist Policies

During Tuesday’s press conference at the White House, a reporter asked the president about how his pursuit of socialist policies have harmed the economy.

But the reporter was talking to French president François Hollande.

When Hollande, a member of France’s Socialist party, was asked whether he thinks his 75 percent tax rate on millionaires and other leftist economic policies were scaring off investors, President Obama took comfort in his French counterpart’s being the recipient of the label rather than him.

​”It’s good to know that reporters have something in common in both France and United States,” Obama quipped.
