Ancient White House Reporter Helen Thomas Retires after “Jews Go Home” Comment … Victim of Her Own PC
I guess we can add another individual to the list of the unemployed under President Barack Hussein Obama …
Helen Thomas, who has been covering Presidents since the the JFK Administration retired today, effective immediately, following her her controversial statements about Israel stating that Jews needed to “get out of Palestine” and go back to Poland and Germany. JFK Administration, I would have thought the Washington administration. Thomas would later apologize; however, the damage was done.
Today, Helen Thomas’ seat was vacant and will be from this point going forward.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called the Helen Thomas comments “offensive and reprehensible.” Now all this administration needs to do is actually trat Israel like an ally.
Asked today about her marks, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called them “offensive and reprehensible” and added that they “do not reflect certainly the opinion of most of the people here and certainly not of the administration.”
What is most ironic regarding Thomas’ forced retitement is that she is a victim of her owm media elite political correctness. Helen Thomas should be allowed to have an opinion; however, this one was a doozy and really was almost indefensable. However, for all the Leftist media elitist that are in the WH Press corps, I wonder gow many of them had the same opinion? Now, they will never voice their true feelings seeing what happened to the Helen Thomas.
Personally, I have never been a fan of Helen Thomas and the more bitter she became in later years I never could quite under stand why any one (Republican Administrations) must up with her nonsense. Some say she was a barrier breaker, some say she got what she deserved and it was a fitting end and some say, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
EXIT QUESTION: How many in the liberal MSM feel exactly the same as Helen Thomas with regards to Israel but are too cowardice to say it?
