‘Dude!’ WH spokesman’s unbelievable Benghazi response

‘Dude, this was like two years ago’: Former WH spokesman’s unbelievable response when pressed about Benghazi
After listening to Tommy Vietor respond to Bret Baier’s questions about the newly released Benghazi emails like a petulant child, it is no wonder he is a former White House national security spokesman. On Thursday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report, Baier asked Vietor about the role he played in altering the talking points following the September 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans. The former spokesman, who apparently had no good answer to the question, flippantly responded: “Dude, this was like two years ago.” See the bizarre exchange and Glenn’s reaction HERE.
