White House Crashers Claim They Were Invited

You know your image is in trouble when Matt Lauer begins his interview with you clarifying for the home audience that NBC didn't pay you for your appearance. Here are Tareq And Michaele Salahi aka the White House dinner crashers saying they were invited and did not crash the party where Michael shook hands with President Barack Obama and one of the Salahis hugged VP Joe Biden. They say they are dismayed that they are being maligned in the media.

They say they are cooperating with the Secret Service's investigation, and it's all a big misunderstanding, but White House Press Secretary Gibbs says otherwise.
"This wasn't a misunderstanding," the spokesman said. "You don't show up at the White House as a misunderstanding."

Said Salahi: "We're greatly saddened by all the circumstances ... portraying my wife and I as party crashers. I can tell you we did not party-crash the White House."

So, there you have it as they tell it, everybody's lying on them. Only they are telling the truth, even the Black Caucus is lying when they say these people crashed one of their dinners a while back. Hmm. No, they were invited there too, they say.
