Carney: Durbin Wrong, No One Told Obama "I Cannot Even Stand To Look At You"

JACKIE CALMES, NEW YORK TIMES: Just to follow up on that. In terms of the president talking to Republicans, can you rule out -- there was the number two Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin, said on his Facebook page that someone in recent exchange with the president said he can't even stand, this member of Congress, that he can't even stand to look at the president. Can you say whether that happened?

JAY CARNEY: I will say this, I spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen.

QUESTION: Did the White House speak to Senator Durbin about this?

CARNEY: I don't know. My understanding is that, again, from participants in the meeting that that didn't happen.

QUESTION: Did anything like it happen that would --

CARNEY: Not that I'm aware of, Jackie.
