Video: Obama is asked about Planned Parenthood scandal

Jill Stanek:

The 1st bit of news to glean from Obama’s response is he was fully aware of the scandal.

Obama tried to minimize the sex trafficking sting as “manufactured” and only getting attention on the “blogosphere,” both claims of which are patently false. His own Dept. of Justice is now involved, after all, and the videos were repeatedly cited in GOP House testimony last week about an amendment to defund PP – which passed.

But Obama did nothing to reassure PP beyond that. In fact, he only distanced himself from the sex trafficking sanctuary.

Obama 1st noted that any “specific problem… should be addressed.” Slap.

But his most intriguing statement was, “I think that Planned Parenthood in the past has done good work.”

Past tense.

Asked about Planned Parenthood and Live Action in a Richmond, Va., news interview, Barack Obama inadvertently makes the case for defunding Planned Parenthood.

BFFs no more?
