White House lawyers talk with Samsung about Ortiz selfie
On CBS News' Face The Nation on Sunday, Obama's senior advisor, Dan Pfeiffer, was asked about the selfie. He reiterated earlier reports which said that the president had no idea that Ortiz had just signed a deal with Samsung to promote the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the day before the selfie was taken. Pfeiffer added that whenever the president is being used to promote a product, it is a concern for the president's counsel.
The most interesting question asked by host Bob Schieffer, was whether the White House was considering legal action against Samsung. Pfeiffer replied that the White House had spoken with Samsung and had "expressed their concerns." When asked how Samsung responded, Pfeiffer said that he would leave that up to the lawyers to talk about.
