Fox News’ Ed Henry returns White House fire on gender gap; others join the fun

Fox News senior White House correspondent Ed Henry exercised one of the perks of his position Tuesday — tweaking the hypocritical nose of a sanctimonious Obama administration staff member.

He described the Twitter exchange he had with White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri to Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on “Shepard Smith Reporting,” in the above video, but the real fun is reading the tweets, and the Twitchy team was only too happy to record them all.
