White House press secretary Josh Earnest looked (and sounded) extremely constipated when he joined Joe Scarborough on Morning Joe yesterday to talk about the Senate’s failure to pass gun control.

Although both of the gun control bills Earnest referred to yesterday were voted down after his beloved Democrats’ failed to find support for them, guess what the White House response was?

“It was a shameful display of cowardice, and the reason I described it as cowardice is because I don’t know what else to call it,” he said. “Cowards are people who talk really tough in the hope they will not be asked to actually act and actually do something, and the truth is that is exactly what Republicans have done.”

…and then he said Republicans won’t do anything to prevent islamic terrorists from walking into a gun store and purchasing firearms because they’re ‘scared of the NRA’.
