Why shouldn't women reasonably wonder if this White House doesn't have a lax attitude when it comes to the question of domestic abuse?>> I don't think we have a lax attitude, I think what you saw happen this week, Major, was completely reasonable and normal. The President had someone work-
>> Reasonable and normal?>> Wait, let me explain that. The President had someone working for him who came to him and said look, I've been accused of this, I've been falsely accused of this, please don't believe it, it's not true. If your camera man came to you and said that to you, probably would give that person the benefit of the doubt, or at least you'd want to do that.
Because you know that person, and you trust that person. That's what the President did, up until the time that it became obvious when the photographs came out, and the person was not being honest with the President. And that person after that happened, we dismissed that person immediately. So that's an ordinary and it's a very human reaction to the set of circumstances.
>> In this climate, do you think the President missed an opportunity and may have insulted people by not at least recognizing the victims in this situation? Rob Porter's ex-wives, and the wife of David Sorenson, who are victims.>> Yeah, I think what you saw the President go through this week, I don't know if you all played the video, the speech that he gave or the comment that he made, he was extraordinarily saddened by this.
He's been let down->> On behalf of Rob.>> He's been let down by somebody who he trusted, somebody who he put in a place of authority, and then wasn't told the truth. That saddened the President. I think you saw that this week.
