From the February 16 edition of ABC's World News Tonight With David Muir:
MARY BRUCE: Watching on Capitol Hill, members of the Congressional Black Caucus in shock.
EMANUEL CLEAVER (D-MO): This man is clueless.
BRUCE: Congressman Emanuel Cleaver in disbelief that the president would ask that reporter, April Ryan, of the American Urban Radio Networks, to set up the meeting.
CLEAVER: Because there was a black woman in the room, the assumption was that some way, somehow, in spite of the fact that she was a reporter, she had some kind of unique contact with the Congressional Black Caucus.
BRUCE: You don't think he would have asked another reporter to set up a meeting like that?
CLEAVER: Well, I don't think he would have asked you to set up the meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus.
