Yesterday Sean Spicer was unable to do the White House briefing so it fell to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to do it.
Energy Secretary Rick Perry took the podium first, since it is Energy week at the White House.
Reporters were gunning for them both, especially “reporter” Brian Karem.
I love how Rick Perry suffers no fools. By having Karem repeat the question he showed what a stupid question it was to begin with.
But Karen wasn’t happy to just have a little ass whooping. He charged at Sarah and she spanked him, too.
SaraH and Rick kept their cool – a difficult thing to do in a room full of snakes. Karem’s act of righteous indignation falls flat. All they really want is to preen to their liberal constituents. The camera gives them a way to say “Look how smart we are and how stupid the White House is!”
I guess Karem wanted some face time. He probably needs it. Here’s how he describes himself on twitter:
Emmy nominated producer/writer/ best selling author/ humorist/ father/ musician/ television personality/ WH reporter/ stand up comic/ columnist for Playboy
That nobody has heard of.
He also says he’s with thesentinel.com. It’s a DC area
outfit with two papers, a Prince George version and a Montgomery County one. Both are in Maryland. Prince George is a deep blue county. No wonder.
After the briefing he got to twitter as fast as his fingers could go to tweet: “So, when we are wrong we correct ourselves but when has POTUS ever done that? We are not FAKE news.”
I don’t see that POTUS has needed to correct himself. In fact, his tweets have been spot on.
Not to worry. Karem’s 15 minutes of fame are now over.
