Jay Carney Calls Question About George Zimmerman Death Threats "Ridiculous"

Turns the 16-year-old intern sent to ask the question into a story

|

It's not every day that a high school student gets to ask a question at a White House press briefing. Yesterday, 16-year-old Gabe Finger, an intern at The Daily Caller, asked Press Secretary Jay Carney whether President Obama plans to take any action after the death threats to George Zimmerman and his family.

Carney said he wasn't aware of any specific reports about death threats, but deferred to Florida authorities. He then brushed off the question as "ridiculous."
