WH: Obama to Find Better Way to Spend Thursday Than Watch GOP Debate

Friday on MSNBC’s “Now w/Alex Wagner,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama won’t be watching the Republican presidential debate next Thursday on on Fox News Channel.

Earnest said, “I think the president will certainly follow the news coverage. And he’s got his own vested stake in this debate about, you know, where the country is going to go from here and certainly what candidates are getting some traction. But my guess is the president will probably find a better way to spend his Thursday night.”
