In his final 24 hours as Press Secretary, Jay Carney answered questions from Stephen Colbert—including what his post-White House relationship will be with one of his most prominent sparring partners.
“You two had some tense moments,” Colbert said of the occasional barbs traded between Carney and ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in the briefing room.
“When are you guys gonna just get a room?” Colbert followed up.
Carney answered that Karl and other White House correspondents are just doing their jobs when grilling him on politics of the day. Last month, Karl told us “of course” he’d miss Carney, and “it was never personal” between he and Jay.
