After the signing of the Freedom of Press Act on Monday, President Obama declined to take any questions from the press.
During a pooled press event in the Oval Office, President Obama was asked if he would take a couple questions.
"You're certainly free to ask the question," Obama told the reporters in the room. "I won't be answering, I'm not doing a press conference today, but we'll be seeing you in the course of the week."
After just signing the "Freedom of Press Act" that is an incredibly tone-deaf thing to say. At least have the courage to admit — Freedom of Press Act or not — you don't want to give information to the press.
