WH to Reporter: ‘That’s a Clown Question, Bro’

Monday at the White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest refused to confirm whether President Barack Obama refers to UK Prime Minister David Cameron as “bro,” by calling CBS News’ chief White House correspondent Major Garrett’s question a “clown question.”

Garrett asked Earnest about Cameron telling the “Daily Mail” that Obama often calls him “bro,” Earnest answered by referring to a response by Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, saying,  “Well, to paraphrase a local baseball player here in Washington, D.C., that’s a clown question, bro.”
