Stephen Colbert to Jay Carney: When are You and Jonathan Karl Going to ‘Get a Room?’

CarneyIn his final 24 hours as Press Secretary, Jay Carney answered questions from Stephen Colbert—including what his post-White House relationship will be with one of his most prominent sparring partners.

“You two had some tense moments,” Colbert said of the occasional barbs traded between Carney and ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in the briefing room.
