OVERWORKED AND UNDERCUT
White House Staff React in Real-Time as Trump Tweets: ‘Jesus’
Flacking for a man who can change his mind at any moment is proving to be a tactical minefield for the White House press office.
It was 7:51 a.m. eastern time on a Friday, and the president was angrily tweetstorming again.This time, it was about “Fake News,” “the Russians,” China and beef, James Comey and “tapes,” and his sometimes hapless White House staff.“As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!” @realDonaldTrump posted. “Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future ‘press briefings’ and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???”
