Does this look like the face of a president telling the truth?
Obama now no longer says he’s to blame for suspending White House tours, he’s blaming the secret service. This just days after Kansas kids called him petty.
President Obama insisted Wednesday that the Secret Service was behind the controversial suspension of White House tours, a claim that was met with vocal skepticism during a closed-door meeting with Republicans.
The president, while leaving open the option of resuming tours for school children, explained to House Republicans during a meeting on Capitol Hill that "the Secret Service made the decision," Fox News has learned.
The claim, similar to one he made in an interview broadcast Wednesday morning, was met with a round of "ahaaaaas" by those in the room.
Obama, in response, told the lawmakers: "Hold on guys, we just talked about respect."
