Last week, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus got himself in a little bit of trouble when the GOP’s “war on women” came up. The party chair told Bloomberg Television that the entire concern isn’t to be taken seriously because “it’s a fiction.”
Priebus added, “If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we’d have problems with caterpillars.”
This morning, the Republican party chief appeared on msnbc and was offered a chance to walk it back. He didn’t.
