Did a reporter seriously ask Jay Carney these questions?

We have heard some bizarre questions from reporters in the White House press pool over the years, but yesterday, Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher took it to a whole new level when he peppered White House Press Secretary Jay Carney with some downright bizarre questions about Obamacare and the debt ceiling debate.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“It is so simpleminded and pandering that I wonder if there’s something wrong with him,” Glenn said of Christopher on radio this morning. “Because listen to this question asked by Mediaite yesterday in the press room.”

CARNEY:  Tommy.

CHRISTOPHER:  I have three questions.

CARNEY:  Three?

CHRISTOPHER:  Yeah.  First of all, I don’t know if you’re aware of this but when I had a heart attack three years ago, I was uninsured and haven’t been able to get insurance ever since then. Listening to all the pressure on the president negotiate a lot from inside this room made me think, is there a chance the president would be willing to delay Obamacare for a year if Republicans were to agree to delay heart attacks for a year?

“Okay. Stop,” Glenn said. “Notice that there’s nobody in the press room laughing. Nobody laughed at that because that is such an outrageously stupid question. You seriously question the man’s IQ. I mean, what, are you applying for a job? Is that what you’re doing? Really, is that what you’re doing? Are you applying for a job? Would the President delay Obamacare for a year if the Republicans decide to delay heart attacks for a year?”

“I mean, that’s just mindless stupidity,” Pat agreed. “And it went on. There was more.”

CHRISTOPHER:  My second question, I was talking to my mom this morning actually and she asked me to ask you to please open government back up again. And I know you can’t just do that, but she’s really worried about her Social Security check. And I told her, you know, don’t worry, Mom, we’ll get it taken care of; I don’t want you to worry. But, you know, Steve Rattner last night said that October 23rd is one of these drop-dead dates, you know, when stuff starts to pile up. And so I guess my question is, you know, should she be worried?

CARNEY:  What I would say about that which goes to the issue of the debt ceiling is that the basic premise of the United States always pays its bills on time is not jeopardized. So that’s the position the President has taken.

“Okay. I’m talking to Mommy? So I’m already questioning his IQ on the first one,” Glenn said.

“Tommy’s talking to Mommy and Mommy wants to know about the Social Security check… You cannot default. He is picking and choosing. You cannot, according to the Constitution, default. And why no one will say that is beyond me. If you aren’t paying your Social Security checks, that, again, will be by choice – the President’s choice, not Congress’ choice. And if anybody thinks that the President would choose not to pay Social Security, then that says something about the President of the United States… Now, here’s the third question.”

CHRISTOPHER:  Do you remember the last debt ceiling deal there was a plan floated that was called the McConnell plan where congress would authorize a debt ceiling increase for, I think it was a year, year and a half, and it would hold a vote every so often so the Republicans could vote no, but it would require 2/3 majority to overrule. So it gave the president the authority. Is something like the McConnell plan in the air now, being discussed now? And if not, why not?

“Oh, those are three hard-hitting, brutal questions,” Pat quipped. “I’m worried about whether the Republicans will agree to delay heart attacks for a year… That’s got to be embarrassing. How do you let the guy back in the office? [Mediaite has] got some actual people who work there, some real journalists who work there and are really trying to do some actual work. And then you got this clown? Really?”

“I mean that’s the guy you send to the White House,” Glenn asked. “Tommy and his Mommy?”

    Tommy got care for his attack, he just didn’t have insurance. But, yes he got care and there was no ACA. Sounds like we had a pretty good plan already running.

    Three years ago, Mr. Christopher had no insurance…. that was HIS choice! No one forced him to buy insurance. That’s the risk you take in life (same applies to Car Insurance and Life Insurance among other things).

    Ya know…Obamacare is just PURCHASED insurance. That’s it! Nothing “MAGICAL!” That’s completely different than “HEALTHCARE”, which now is a concern for everyone, because who knows what the actual quality of care will be because of all the new laws and regulations and ridiculous costs. Since there is already less competition, prices will only go up from here – not down.
    I wish people would WAKE UP already. You just don’t get “something for nothing”.

    Lefties are kind of an enigma because you have fairly complex people who at the same time are not particularly intelligent. To understand a lefty you need to know 3 things: 1] While they pay lip service to the constitution they don’t believe in it and would sooner do away with it., 2] While they espouse sympathy and support for the lower classes and the middle class what they are truly pursuing is control. and 3] they adhere closely to the doctrine of the end always justifies the means no matter how heinous the means might be. Once you accept these attributes of a lefty you will understand, more or less, who they are and their goals.

  • celticnanaof3

    People seem to have a problem understanding the terms health CARE and health INSURANCE. Hospitals that accept gov’t funding cannot refuse to treat anyone who goes to them for health CARE whether or not they have health insurance to pay for their care. Health INSURANCE is something we buy to help us pay for our health CARE. Health INSURANCE is NOT an Constitutionally guarantee RIGHT. Nor is health CARE, but we seem to have accepted that it is now.

    Why would any self-respecting press secretary even answer that first question? Anyone with a brain (that leaves Carney out) would have said, “Do you have a serious question to ask, or are the other two this ridiculous?”

    Social Security checks were never at risk here. Social Security runs out of money in its “trust” fund a few years down the road, but not during this shutdown.

    This business of not getting Social Security checks is just another example of the egregious scare tactics used by unscrupulous politicians. And they DO know better. They are just liars, across party lines, but Obama is the chief liar; he hardly says a word that is’t meant to decieve. But he seems to be doing so successfully, and that is not a good thing for America.

    I literally weep often for my country.

    Let’s look at social security realistically…it was begun and clearly stated at it’s inception that it was a supplement to your own personal retirement accumulation. Then after the great society and Carter inflation, companies went broke from union demands and under the Clintons, moved out of country. And went the retirement funds as well. The people want to blithely have the government with small money input to social security to pay many multiples of their input back to them as benefits while he free-spending congress keeps borrowing (pilfering) from the trust fund, which has now been raided to where it is broke. Congress now regards social security as a “handout” or “entitlement” which is ingenuous to say the least. The reality is that unions by and large caused this…..and now we see government positions paying substantially more than private enterprise pays for identical work….. teacher’s unions are typical off this But to be more complete in the train of thought on this, so has a level of irresponsible greed from the stock market. The legal system is the primary fault….we need real tort reform….or just as America was founded by the gun, our current “leadership” will perish in short manner the same way. These thieves in government know this, hence an ammunition shortage. Let’s face it, if there were a real shorted volume, the Chinese would be selling boatloads of ammunition here. To deny ammo is to disarm the country.

  • http://drudgereport.com/ Myles Standish

    I don’t believe so, since your intent is clearly crude and un-Christian. I don’t like this childish, unprofessional “journalist” any more than the next conservative, but would you use “d**do” or “d**khead” when speaking to your mother? Pastor? Jesus? What passes for “okay” these days is NOT okay a great deal of the time. Just because lots of other people use the term in no way makes it appropriate. The way that many young people talk these days is positively alarming and revolting! I hear 12 year olds talking like 45 year old dock workers! Morality is seriously under attack thanks to the clinton, and now obama presidencies. We need to stand firm against the use of gutter language and nasty name-calling since both are a big part of the morality puzzle. If you are not a Christian, I don’t see that as some sort of green light to talk filthy, but since morality was created by God/Christ, most non-believers treat morality as relative, as in moral relativity, which is sending this nation down the slippery slope at break-neck speed. // Thanks for your question!

    My reply was a joke, but I understand your position. There was a time when I was young that I used foul language. But when my kids come back home and cuss, I simply tell them it’s not appropriate and to please stop it. For young people, I think they should at least learn that there is different language one uses in different situations. As to comments sections, I’m with you. Comments on Beck’s sites are generally pretty good. If you want to see trash, go to the more general sites such as the CBS ones. It’s disgusting. Regarding your last comment, I disagree. Most non-believers I know (including me) DO have a sense of morality. I think the general decay of culture is not so much religion or lack of it, but what is deemed acceptable on public airways and what is deemed acceptable from our so-called leaders. Clinton, for example, did a great job of convincing teenagers that oral sex isn’t sex. And I disagree that morality was created by God/Christ. Before Jesus, and before Christianity, there were moral people. Knowing right from wrong does not require that you believe in God.

    When and if the Serf’s ever wake up and understand that King Obama is a mouth piece picked to see how far the Serf’s can be pushed before they rise up and revolt. The King was able to close WW-2 Memorial and very few citizens stood up to call him on it and his treatment of the vets. If the King gets by with mistreating the ones who have fought for freedom it will not be long before the common citizens are taken over. WE are worse the Serf’s as we once had freedom and let it be taken from us. We fight each other rather then the elected in both parties who love new taxes and control. Anyone in their right mind that thinks this ACA is about health care is in need of Mental health care, it is about control. ACA is a tax and the power to tax is the power to destroy. Our elected are using it very well and we own nothing. Now the elected will control your health care and decide who gets what and when. You can deal with a person who has honest convictions but you cannot and should not ever trust a liar.

    I knew there was a good chance your question was a joke, but decided to take it seriously as an excuse to comment.

    We will agree to disagree. GOD/Jesus always was and always will be. He was here before man needless to say since He created man. He created all things. Morality without God is moral relativity. It can’t be anything else. It’s each person deciding for themselves what is right and wrong. Man didn’t create morality any more than he did his body.

    You say “before Jesus…” there were moral people. Don’t confuse Christ’s 33 years on Earth as His beginning. Christ Jesus is God. He has always been. He is without beginning or end. He is the great I AM. Those who do not believe in God, His Holy Word, Jesus as their Savior, make up their own personal version of morality, and it is guaranteed to fail in the end. Eternity is a long time to regret not having believed and been saved.

    Anyway, we will agree to disagree. We could go back and forth for years. I’m not interested in that. I imagine you aren’t either. We’ve both stated our positions….lets leave it at that. Enjoy your temporary mortal life. My life truly begins when my mortal life ends.

And I have complete respect for those who do believe in God. It’s just not for me.

    How come you don’t call your allies “trolls” when they guest their comments?

    1) Double standards

    2) It’s not being a troll to point out that something Beck says is just flat-out wrong, inaccurate, deceitful.

    You should change your Disqus name to Ben__Bull$hit.

    Can’t handle the truth, huh? Apparently, when Beck rails against his own principles and it’s pointed out, it’s the critic’s fault for pointing out Beck’s contradictions, lies, hypocrisies, deceitful propaganda and fraudulent nature.

  • Guest

    Most Beckerheads are semi-literate. Is this the first time you’ve noticed?

  • Guest

    And Beck is mentally healthy for insulting his family values?

    You’re pathetic!

  • Cartman

    Uh-huh. Would you care to elaborate on anything you just said here, or are you too busy hitting up a fucking crack pipe in NYC?

  • Judy

    I’ve noticed the people who listen to/watch Glenn Beck are much more literate than the liberals who read the Huffington Post! Wow, there are some really uneducated folks!

    How old is this guy? From his questions he sounds like an adolescent but he had a heart attack three years ago? He obviously survived so what is he complaining about?

  • Guest

    Sure: Beck is mocking Tommy because he’s concerned about his mother’s SS. And his own health.

    Beck pretends to have family values, but not when he is pointing his hateful finger at a liberal.

    Got it? I doubt it; your “crack pipe” is Beck’s hateful propaganda. You’re hardly alone.

    i hardly call that hateful and it’s no different from anyone else in the media, i’m sure sarcasm and hate have the same meaning to your dimwitted ideology but the health-care plan will do nothing to cover that dimwit’s “family” and there are no values coming from this reporter, merely concern.

    And the only people who ARE signing up are the very sick who will drain the system. When the young people see what this is going to cost them they are going to opt for the $95.00 fine which will collapse the system (YEAH!)

    I read a report that said based on the (theoretical) number that have managed to sign up in the past two + weeks, it will take some 50 years to get the 8 million needed to make this monstrosity just limp along. Forget it if they think the 40+ million without health insurance will be able to sign up by the January 1 (or is it March 31sy) deadline.

    Hey Tommy, we’ll delay heart-attacks for a year if you step away from cheeseburgers and fries for a year, and join a gym. Dude, you’re second chin wobbles like a bowl of jelly when you talk.

    Good Lord, a rump-kissing pseudo reporter fakes up some story to position for a self-serving “question”, and dipshizzes like you eat it up. MoveOn troll, MoveOn.

    There’s nothing wrong with Tommy. He was a ‘plant’ and he was speaking uneducated Americans who vote this way. Glenn, there are no accidents. The first question was sarcasm. Remember some of the sarcastic questions our liberal Congress uses during the IRS hearings?

    That Tommy reporter guy is just plain strange. Jay Carney should have asked if he’s a space alien in disguise

    Tommy was a staged reporter

    Trying to explain anything about how oblahblah care? will work to a low information person or liberal progressive is a lost cause.

    Also all the “you knows” employed in his questioning.

  • Anonymous

    If Tommy usually asks pretty decent questions it means that when he asked these a space alien may have been disguised as him. And then taken over his mind. Which means the Obama administration has a mystery to solve about what the aliens did with the real Tommy. And why it is they want to infiltrate the White House Press pool anyway.

  • Mary

    Well, carney is the HIGHEST paid mouth piece for oblahblah or they have something very dark hanging over carney’s head. Could he possibly be that stupid? What am I asking? Yes.

  • Mary

    ROFLMAO!!!!!!

    Sometimes a little humor helps keep one from going crazy or exploding. And, one word does not make it porn. Get a grip.

  • Mary

    Ditto.

    Tommy is a fine example of our government schools. Is there anyplace else to go but down?

  • Mary

    carney that think that deeply.

    Research & see just who owns all the media companies. It will answer all your questions.

    Truth? You wouldn’t know the truth if it walked up, kicked you between the legs and gave you a fat lip. It is what I would expect from vicki tiffany the coward though.

    Why is Mediaite allowed in to begin with and who told this blithering idiot he is a reporter? He makes the alphabets look good.

  • SomeGalNTx

    Wonder if he PAID the bill even. Maybe Mommy did? Or he got the benefit of charity care via the hospital? Obviously, he is doing nothing to reduce his risk of another MI. At least, living in MOMs basement she can call 911 for him after his triple cheeseburger and large fries cause another one?

  • SomeGalNTx

    Anyone who has had the “opportunity” to review the options available, and found the deductibles to be in the 13k range, they are really not covered, unless they really use their insurance. So nothing has changed! One hospital visit and you are SCREWED!

  • anthony lc

    This guy is the biggest tool so called journalist I have ever heard, and that takes something in today’s biased news era.

  • Anonymous

    Like I said all along the media aligns themselves with Demecrates. They will do whatever is necessary to make their point. This is a perfect example of that. Stating the obvious so the others will get the point. This man was not stupid for asking these questions, he asked these questions to support the presidents position. That is brillant. Our reports should do the same.

    Not one to give Jay kudos, but how did he keep a straight face and not just roll his eyes and give the gag sign?
