20. Gibbs gets paid 172,000 taxpayer dollars for his 'opinions'.
And he is citing made up crap that no one ever said, and tilting at this windmill of 'liberal media' that the right also imagines.
Gibbs called out those who want universal health care. Those who think we spend too much money on war for a broke ass nation. He slammed the hand that feeds him 172,000 dollars a year.
Never heard him speak a word off the clock.
