Reporter To Earnest: Why Does Ayatollah Get ‘Benefit Of The Doubt,’ But Not Netanyahu?

During Thursday’s White House briefing, the Associated Press’ Jim Kuhnhenn interrogated press secretary Josh Earnest over the Obama administration’s unequal treatment of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Kuhnhenn asked the White House flack why the Ayatollah is getting “the benefit of the doubt” from the administration over comments about the Iran deal last week, but Netanyahu does not after his comments that there would be no Palestinian state. Earnest pushed back against the notion that the Ayatollah is getting the benefit of the doubt, saying that “distrust and verify” is the approach the administration is currently taking.
