Earnest: We’re Not Going to Comment on Every Single Trump Tweet
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest reacted to Donald Trump‘s latest Twitter firestorm by, well, saying they’re not going to keep commenting on them.
“This is not the first thing that the president-elect has said or tweeted that President Obama disagrees with,” he said. “So I will let the president-elect and his team discuss the words that populate his Twitter feed. They can explain or defend those positions or those views.”
So Earnest––who weighed in yesterday on Donald Trump‘s voter fraud tweet––said don’t expect more of that to happen:

“If I spend our daily interactions here itemizing and criticizing all of the things that the president-elect does that are different from what President Obama has done, that is going to materially undermine our ability to engage in a smooth and effective transition.”
