(CNN) - Can the Republican National Committee bring the Senate GOP leader and President Obama together?
White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton intimated just that when he was asked Monday about a controversial RNC fundraising presentation containing degrading images of the president and Democratic congressional leaders.
"I saw that Mitch McConnell distanced himself from it yesterday, and I think we may have really found an issue where the president and Mitch McConnell agree," Burton said in a briefing with reporters aboard Air Force One.
Appearing Sunday on ABC's "This Week," McConnell distanced himself from the presentation. "I don't like it, and I don't know anybody who does," he said.
The RNC has come under fire for the internal party document that RNC Chairman Michael Steele, himself, has criticized.
Burton, when pressed by a reporter, would not say whether he thinks the RNC should take a stronger stand against the presentation.
"I mean, what Michael Steele decides to do with that individual and what the members of the RNC decide to do is really up to them," Burton said.
