Over the weekend, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that when President Barack Obama calls, the president simply refers to him as “bro.”
Naturally, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about it on Monday.
Not only did CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett want to know if it’s true, he also asked Earnest if Obama has any other pet names for world leaders.
Earnest answered the only way he could, borrowing a line from Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.
“That’s a clown question, bro,” Earnest said, admitting he just wanted to use “bro” in his answer.
“I am not able to give much more insight about the private communications between the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom,” Earnest said.
