Daily Kos blogger Kaili Joy Gray served White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer anything but softball questions when she interviewed him on stage at Netroots Nation this weekend. Questioning what President Obama has done for the progressive movement was a constant theme during the conference, and that reached a fever pitch between Gray and Pfeiffer. Among other uncomfortable questions, Gray asked Pfeiffer why President Obama wouldn’t come out and support marriage equality after he had apparently done so as an Illinois state senator. Watch The UpTake’s interview with Kaili Joy Gray afterward.
