Obama’s media pal forced to defend her vacation with him in Tahiti

The hosts of Friday’s Access Hollywood, put CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on the hot seat regarding to her recent Tahiti vacation with the Obama family.

“Did vacationing on a yacht with the Obamas get Gayle King in hot water with her CBS colleagues? As a co-anchor of CBS This Morning, Gayle covers the White House, but did she step over the line given that President Obama is no longer in power?” they asked provocatively before providing a clip of the White House correspondent giving excuses for the reason she hobnobs with people she’s supposed to be impartially reporting about.

“My vacations are not political,” King declared, noting, “and so I went on vacation with a great group of people and, to me, that’s not a political statement.”

King dismissed reports that some journalists, including King’s CBS This Morning co-anchor Charlie Rose, took issue with her vacationing on a yacht with the Obamas in Tahiti… not to mention the fact that she also donated money to the Obama campaign and her daughter was an Obama administration official. “Last time I checked, he wasn’t in the White House anymore. So, I went on vacation with friends. That’s how I see it,” King explained.
