Obama Campaign Adviser Questioned: 'President Has Time for Whoopi Goldberg But Not World Leaders?'

This is absolutely hysterical.

 FOX News's Chris Wallace ( a registered Democrat, by the way) senior Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs interviewed senior Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs a question or two about how President Obama is using his time.Watch Gibbsy stutter and shake. Here's a transcripit:

CHRIS WALLACE, HOST: I want to go back to the UN though and New York this week. You say that he’s got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules. But the President has blocked out time to appear on The View on Tuesday. So, he has time for Whoopi Goldberg but he doesn’t have time for world leaders?

ROBERT GIBBS, OBAMA SENIOR CAMPAIGN ADVISER: No, Chris. Look, the President is going to be actively involved at the UN General Assembly.

WALLACE: He’s not meeting with any private leaders. He's giving a speech.

GIBBS: Chris, they have telephones in the White House. Last week, he talked to the President of Egypt. He talked to the leader in Libya. We don't need a meeting in Washington just to confer with leaders. We’ve got a strong...

 WALLACE: But he does need the time to be on The View?

GIBBS: We have a strong diplomatic – I’m sure if he was doing an interview with you on Fox News, you’d have no problem with that.

WALLACE: Well, he hasn't, but that’s not the point.

GIBBS: I’m sure that’s not the point. No, look Chris, he’s got a strong schedule. He’s actively involved.

WALLACE: You don't have a problem with the fact that he’s not meeting with any world leaders, but he’s going to appear on The View?

GIBBS: I have no problem with that, because, Chris, you’re the President of the United States every minute of every day.

Yep. Time for Whoop Whoop, Letterman and a costumed pirate, hey,  that's covered. Time to meet with world leaders?  Ummm, well, no.
