White House press secretary Robert Gibbs is doing his daily press briefing now, but earlier he was stealing money from poor, innocent DC journos…
American Urban Radio’s April Ryan made a $50 bet with Gibbs in the press corps’ morning gaggle and was forced to pay up when the White House proved her wrong. “I’m so used to losing. It doesn’t bother me,” she reacted.
The bet was on whether or not Gibbs ever said in a briefing this summer that the President wouldn’t personally go somewhere, like the Hill, because he didn’t have a home field advantage. The transcript was pulled and Congress Daily’s George Condon, who served as a judge, declared Gibbs the victor.
Gibbs: “Baby needs a new pair of shoes!” And just what did he spend Ryan’s hard-earned money on? His brother’s birthday present (so he says).
