Former Obama Advisor Gibbs: I Don’t Read Maureen Dowd – Same Column for Eight Years

Former Obama press secretary and campaign advisor Robert Gibbs had some harsh words for New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd Monday.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Gibbs said, “I don’t normally read Maureen...largely because it’s sort of largely the same column for the last like eight years” (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

During "Must Read Op-eds" portion of the program, co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, “Did you see Maureen Dowd, Robert Gibbs, yesterday?”

“I don’t normally read Maureen,” Gibbs replied.

“Oh, yes you do,” countered Brzezinski.

“I don’t largely because it’s sort of largely the same column for the last like eight years,” Gibbs responded. “Sorry. What did she say? Don’t tell me. Let me guess.”
