Aboard Air Force One, White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz defended President Obama’s controversial remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday.

Schultz explained that he believed that the remarks were “suited” for the event that was attended by many Christians.

“What I think the President was trying to say is, over the course of human history there are times where extremists pervert their own religion to justify violence,” he said.

Schultz indicated that Obama believed in holding people of every faith accountable for the values that America stands for.
