Morning Oopsy: Reporter Makes Prez Sound Crazy

Politico congressional reporter Jake Sherman must be burning the midnight oil these days, or else attending one too many Phish concerts in Washington state. Today he announced on Twitter: “POTUS and Obama spoke today, aide tells me. They’re not saying anything more.”

(Hmmm, so the President of the Free World is talking to himself these days, is that it?)

The Shermanator soon got a ton of crap and so he did something that most definitely would not get anyone to calm down: He told the entire WORLD to relax…

“Ok, world. relax,” he wrote. “It was a typo. Boehner/Obama spoke today.”
