Not sure how useful a daily torrent of lies and distortions is anyway, but the Mouth of Sauron, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has been doing fewer press briefings lately.
Maybe that’s a relief; maybe it’s a dereliction of duty. Either way, it’s a decision that comes from the top.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he told White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders “not to bother” with press briefings anymore, and tried to blame the media for the increasingly rare events.
“The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the 'podium' much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press. I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!” Trump tweeted.
Under the Trump administration, formal press briefings have become a rare occurrence, and are often marked with contentious exchanges and fewer questions. During one briefing in December, Breakfast Media's Andrew Feinberg called out at Sanders to “do your job!”
Sorry, Mr. Feinberg, but SHS’ “job,” for better or worse, is to obfuscate and spin. And it’s generally pretty difficult to hide an 800-pound gorilla corpse, so she’s no longer even going to try.
Thus, the increasing reliance on 45’s Twitler Boof rallies and his Goebbels-smackingly big lies.
So, yeah, nothing to see here. This is completely normal.
