The Important Questions: MSNBC Reporter Asks Josh Earnest About Obama’s Pool Game [VIDEO]

MSNBC reporter Chris Jansing asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Monday if Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper let President Obama win one of the two pool games during his trip to Denver last week.

Hickenlooper said Sunday at the National Governors Association meeting that President Obama beat him at not just one, but two games of pool.

“There’s been some back and forth about that and the $20 that was exchanged,” Jansing said.

Earnest laughed, and said he would “be surprised if Governor Hickenlooper would say that he threw a pool game to the President of the United States.”
