Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday on Now With Alex Wagner it would be “inexplicable” if somebody or a whole team of people were not fired for their role in the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website.
Now an MSNBC contributor, Gibbs said if such action wasn’t taken by the spring, he would be surprised:
ALEX WAGNER: Robert, I think the big picture question here is does the White House learn anything or do anything tangible in response? Ron Fournier calling in his own way the sensational title of his piece is, ‘Fire Your Team, Mr. President.’ Or I think it was, President Obama needs to fires himself. Not literally, of course, but practically he needs to shake up his team. You have said that you think once these problems have been fixed that there will be some staffing changes. Do you still think that’s true and do you think it needs to be as dramatic as what Ron Fournier suggests?
