That’s Top Secret: Liberal Journalist Won’t Say If He Met President Obama

This is laughable. Is this arrogance or showboating? Either way this is for sure: it’s ridiculous.
Check it out:

Though it is no secret that President Barack Obama meets regularly behind closed-doors with high-profile journalists, The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates played coy when asked if he’s ever met the commander-in-chief, though publicly available records indicate that he has.

In an interview with The New Republic, Coates was asked if he thought that Obama had read the writer’s recent article calling for reparations for slavery.

“Do you know if the president’s read the piece?” the interviewer asked.

“I don’t know. I hope so. Don’t know though,” Coates replied.

“Have you met him? Do you see him ever?” he was asked.

“I can’t comment on that,” said Coates. “I’m not allowed to talk about that.”
