White House press secretary Josh Earnest made his first visit to “Shepard Smith Reporting” this afternoon. The 7-minute interview focused on the White House messaging about the mission to take out ISIS in Syria and Iraq and, in Earnest’s words, “the Muslim-led countries who are part of the coalition.”
“Like Saudi Arabia’s going to have some boots over there? or Jordan?” Smith asked in jest. “There will be no commitment from those two, on this I will bet every penny I will ever make at this network.”
“That’s a substantial bet,” Earnest said.
“And it’s a good bet because it’s not going to happen,” Smith shot back. Smith reportedly earns north of $7 million a year. That’s a lot of pennies.
