White House That Has a Pen and a Phone Concerned about Congressional Breach of Protocol

After asserting the right to go around Congress by using the President's pen and phone to take unilateral executive action, the White House is now concerned about a Congressional invite for a foreign leader to speak to a joint session of Congress.

From Fox News:
Asked about the invite, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest described it as a breach of typical protocol since the White House wasn't involved. But he said the administration would reserve judgment until they speak with the Israelis.
The Obama administration has refused to enforce laws passed by Congress and has acted unilaterally without Congress to give legal status to millions of illegal immigrants. President Obama has used executive action extensively to go around Congress in 2014. But Congress better follow not only every law but every protocol. It appears they don't get to have pens and phones.

Well put, TD. Barry practices selective outrage. As do his supporters.

"selective outrage"

That's a great way to describe it, Max. Funny how that works with the media outlets as well.
