A member of the White House press corps had an important question for the deputy press secretary at today's briefing: Has Barack Obama seen the movie The Butler?

Josh Earnest, the deputy press secretary, actually didn't know the answer to the query, but he said, "That's a good question."

From the trancript:

Q: Has the president had a chance to see the movie, "The Butler," yet?

MR. EARNEST: That's a good question. I don't know whether or not he's seen the movie.
