Jay Z v. Jay C [Carney] controversy — there should have been a follow up question (they needed a lawyer in the room. :)


Here is how the White House Press Secretary answered the question today about  Jay Z’s track (that he had White House clearance):

“It’s a song,” Carney said. “The president’s not communicating with Jay-Z over this trip.”

“over this trip.”  What does that mean?  I have no idea…may mean zero but it caught my attention.  I would have had a follow up question: “are they communicating about anything, and, if so, what?”  

And by the way, the Treasury Dept is the agency that officially grants a clearance.
