With Donald Trump at the helm of the greatest rebuilding America has ever seen, we need someone equally strong and powerful to take on the Crooked Media.
That’s the role of Press Secretary, to deal with the Crooked Media on a daily basis. Explain Administration Policy, field questions and set the media straight.
Can you think of anyone better than powerhouse Laura Ingraham?
Laura is just about as bold as Trump himself, and she won’t take any BS from the Crooked Media.
While her name had been floated around before, it’s now looking like nearly a done deal. Excellent!
The most likely bet among the prognosticating class is that Ingraham is being considered for a job as Press Secretary. As Jim reports, Laura had previously said she would consider the post, but would prefer to be helping make policy rather than just broadcasting it. Still, if there are no other seats open at the table, would she really want to replace Josh Earnest?
Putting someone behind the lectern in the White House press room who arrives with a mission of “making fun of them” would represent a total shift in the traditional tone there. But even if this does come to pass, would anyone really be surprised? It’s not as if this wasn’t a punch that Trump has been telegraphing on the campaign trail from the beginning. Unlike what we saw in previous campaigns, the mainstream media didn’t simply serve as quiet observers at Trump rallies. They were featured as prominent characters in the play. The Donald regularly called them out in the press area, heaping scorn on them for their biased coverage and pausing while the crowd would boo and jeer.
Perhaps a new dynamic in the press room will liven things up a bit. We saw multiple instances during the campaign where members of the media insisted that they needed to be “fact checking Trump in real time” during the debates and his frequent speeches rather than simply broadcasting the events and reporting on them later. It would be interesting to say the least if Josh Earnest was replaced by someone who would “bias check” the reporters in “real time” when they ask questions.
