The Question CBS’s Pelley Would Never Ask Obama

0

Let’s pretend, after having GOP leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner respond to the State of the Union Address, CBS’s Scott Pelley, in the interest of fairness, also sat down with Barack Obama. Let’s further make believe, that Pelley would ask our president the same kind of edgy/snarky question he asked Boehner.

The anchor’s query to Speaker Boehner was, “Mr. Speaker, I think your reaction to the State of the Union was written all over your face. It must be a hell of a thing to sit behind the president knowing that 30 million Americans are watching you for an hour. Do you practice that scowl?”

Showing impartiality by following the Boehner model, Pelley’s question in our fantasy interview would have been, “Mr. President, I think your reaction to your State of the Union was written all over your face. It must be a hell of a thing to stand in front of Congress knowing 30 million Americans are watching you for an hour. Do you practice those lies?”

If ever.
