Republican Ad Edits Supreme Court Hearing To Misrepresent White House Presentation
Submitted by Mr. Right
The ad is edited by the Republican National Committee to make Solicitor General Donald Verrilli look bad.
Verrilli did indeed interrupt his opening remarks to take a drink of water and he did stumble over his words at times in the first two minutes of his presentation, according to the audio released by the Supreme Court. However, the audio in the RNC ad combines and compresses those moments, which makes Verrilli sounds as though he interrupted his opening comments twice in a matter of seconds and stumbled over his words in quick succession.
“Our goal was to make the point of what a hard sell Obabacare is,” RNC spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday night.
