NBC’s David Gregory did his best to dismiss Speaker of the House John Boehner’s soon-to-be lawsuit against President Obama for failing to follow the law, dismissing it as a “political stunt.” During an interview with Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, on Meet the Press on Sunday June 29, Gregory insisted that the lawsuit had no real merit and wondered “isn’t this just to gin up the base in the midterms?” Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters.
