When John Spencer Says You’re A Loose Cannon…

Not willing to let a bad story die quietly, John Spencer took a swipe at Ben today for quoting him suggesting that Hillary Clinton had plastic surgery.

Referring back to the denial strategy I thought he abandoned, Spencer told The Resident that Ben’s article “was a total fabrication and a bold-faced lie.”

The best part though, is the name-calling:

Spencer said Smith had previously portrayed him unfairly when he was writing for the New York Observer. “But I didn’t say anything about it,” he said. “I just read it and said, ‘This guy must be a loose cannon or something, I don’t know.'”

Yeah. Ben’s a loose cannon.

NOTE: This post, which is about an argument over accuracy in reporting, has been corrected. It originally said that Spencer was quoted saying that Hillary Clinton “needs plastic surgery.” It has now been changed to reflect more accurately what Ben reported, which is that Spencer suggested that both Hillary Clinton and Jeanine Pirro had had “work” done to improve their looks. Spencer was not quoted using the words “plastic surgery” or suggesting that Hillary still needs it.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
