Doubts Carney’s 'I never lie' claim


Late night host Jimmy Kimmel lampooned White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who claims to never lie, over his other claim of knowing three Hilary Rosens at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“One of Jay’s jobs is to keep track of all the Hilary Rosens,” Kimmel joked before riffing on the White House’s spin after a gaffe by a high-profile Democratic strategist.

Kimmel: “For those of you who aren’t familiar with this story … Hilary Rosen is the woman who said Ann Romney never worked a day in her life, even though Mrs. Romney raised five kids. And, of course, the administration tried to distance itself from those comments. It said she’s not an adviser to the Obama campaign—even though as we later found out her name appeared on the White House visitor log 35 times.”

Continuing to Carney’s response, Kimmel said, “So when reporters asked Jay why her name showed up 35 times—this is where it gets hilarious—he said he wasn’t sure if it was the same Hilary Rosen. He said, “I personally know three Hilary Rosens.”…

“I’d bet you $10,000 you don’t know three Hilary Rosens, but I’m not running for president,” Kimmel cracked at Carney.
