Burton: Rahm got fired. Kidding! 

It's Air Force Fun when Burton briefs  (huffpo photo)

Aboard the presidential airliner this morning with the long-suffering White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, en route to Florida:

Q: Is President Obama planning on hugging Charlie Crist?

Burton: I haven't talked to him about the specific greeting, but we look forward to seeing all the Florida officials who will be there when we get on the ground.

Q: Do we know what the delay was in leaving this morning?

Burton: It just is one of those deals where Rahm wanted to speak to the president and everything sort of slowed down a little bit.

Q: Did Rahm get fired?

Burton: This is awkward, but yes -- I am announcing that right now. (Laughter) No.

The night before: Rahm and Napolitano, enjoying the State of the Union. (ap)
