Wow. But that’s not all! White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer hit the Sunday shows today. Pesky facts? Nothing to see here, move along! Want to know where Obama was and what he was doing during the Benghazi attack? What difference does that make, rubes? Irrelevant!
So said Dan Pfeiffer on “Fox News Sunday.”

Asked specifically where in the WH the President was on 9/11, @pfeiffer44 says "that's an irrelevant fact."

WH Comms Dan Pfeiffer spending a lot of time on Sunday shows being offended by questions rather than answering them. #Benghazi

Pfeiffer calls knowing the whereabouts of the POTUS at any time "irrelevant fact". Let that arrogance sink in for a moment.

Irrelevant seems to be his word of the day. He offered it up again on ABC’s “This Week.”

You see, the legality of the IRS targeting conservative groups is also totally irrelevant. We don’t need no stinkin’ laws.
Dan Pfeiffer just told Stephanopoulos "the law is irrelevant" in the IRS targeting story.

So, I guess, is the truth. “@PounderFile: Great Dan Pfeiffer quote: "The law's irrelevant"”

Always surprised when WH sends fratboy Dan Pfeiffer on Sunday shows. Even more surprised when he says 'the law is irrelevant' in #IRS case

Nice to know Mr Pfeiffer speaking to @GStephanopoulos
thinks that whether something is legal or illegal is irrelevant!

Dan Pfeiffer: "Law Is Irrelevant" On IRS Scandal http://t.co/Q8DwVHBwCh

More from ABC:
“I can’t speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant. The activity was outrageous and inexcusable, and it was stopped and it needs to be fixed so we ensure it never happens again,” Pfeiffer said.
Stephanopoulos asked Pfeiffer if he really thought the law is “irrelevant.”
“What I mean is, whether it’s legal or illegal is not important to the fact that the conduct doesn’t matter…
Evidently, the Department of Justice must investigate irrelevancy to find out if targeting conservative groups is legal. It is apparently above everyone else’s pay grade, including the acting IRS director.
Hey, according to David Plouffe, they had it coming anyway because they were “flourishing.”
But it’s OK, you guys. He totally thinks it’s outrageous anyway.
Boss Obama spokesmouth Pfeiffer: "The law is irrelevant." 'Nuff said, eh?

The lack of self-awareness is staggering. Legal shmegal: It’s all irrelevant.
