BuzzFeed’s Michael Hastings probably thought nobody was watching Martin Bashir’s MSNBC show (and who could blame him?) when he let out this goodie:
“That’s the presence of Obama, even on the press corps, even on the people who follow him every day,” Hastings said. “When they are near him, they lose their mind sometimes. They start behaving in ways, you know, that are juvenile and amateurish and they swoon.”
Hastings admitted he was guilty of the swooning as well and said that when he had a chance to question the president, he neglected to go to his well of questions concerning drones and civil liberties, but instead took a softer approach.
