[See NewsBusters for more.] New Yorker editor David Remnick appeared on CBS This Morning, Friday, to brag about his scoop on Barack Obama’s reaction to the election of Donald Trump. Asked by Charlie Rose what “worries” Obama about the President-elect, Remnick marveled, “Where to on begin? Certainly appointments like Sessions or Flynn, whom he fired, or Steve Bannon. That is for starters worries him. He worries that someone who had a national campaign that was marked by misogyny and racism and all the rest is now president of the United States.” Remnick touted his inside information on what Obama really thinks about Trump. Regarding the Oval Office meeting between the two, the journalist noted, “ He smiled and he said, ‘I'll tell you all about it over beer off the record.’ Meaning for the moment now, certainly for the next couple of months, he is playing it close to the vest.”
