President Obama appeared in the White House briefing room for a press conference today after receiving criticism from reporters that he was shutting them out in favor of softer interviews with entertainment media.
After the session was finished, ABC’s Jake Tapper called out, “Don’t be a stranger.”
“Have a fun summer!” another reporter called out.
“Come back!” MSNBC’s Chuck Todd added.
“Jay’s just going to leave, look at that,” Todd joked as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney followed the president out of the briefing room.
The president hasn’t held a White House news conference since March 6th, according to CBS reporter Mark Knoller.
