KJ, the Internet may no longer care about the Salahis , but morning TV sure does. The White House gate-crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi went on the Today Show this morning to proclaim their innocence . They say they had clearance to attend the state dinner last Tuesday, and that their lives have been ruined by all the bad press and the paparazzi attention. Too bad for them, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs showed up to debunk the Salahis' lies. "This wasn't a misunderstanding," Gibbs told Meredith Vieira, "You do not show up at the White House as a misunderstanding."
The best part was when Michaele Salahi-who ,according to the Washington Post , hasn't held a job in years and lied about being a Redskins cheerleader -complained to Matt Lauer that all her "hard work" was destroyed by this kerfuffle. I guess social climbing is really exhausting. Watch the full interview by clicking here .
