Since when is lying about the nature of key nuclear deals & misleading Congress & the public NOT offensive?

A New York Times magazine profile quoting Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes admitting that administration officials used deception about the Iran deal to sell it to the public was confirmed today by Josh Earnest.
Jen Psaki, director of communications for the White House, is now at the front of the spin parade:
Since when is having a coordinated message, being responsive with facts and effectively using social media offensive? #BenRhodes

Hmm, what could that mean?
.@Psaki44 coordinated message like, oh I don't know, "If you like your plan you can keep it"?

They really do think everybody is stupid.
Define "coordinated". https://t.co/1y5LINKi06

@Psaki44 When you lie like a damned rug, for example.

@Psaki44 When an administration official brags about lying and manipulating people into accepting a bad deal, it's offensive.

@Psaki44 Since the time that nobody who is speaking on behalf of this administration could speak without lying. Next question.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact Iran helps murder American troops, sponsors ISIS & wants to nuke Isreal. https://t.co/9mzy5XgpPk

Maybe a #WereNotDishonest hashtag from the White House would help put this controversy to rest.
