Speaking for the President
Recently it was announced that the Presidential Press Secretary, Sara Sanders, would be resigning from her position. On one political side, there is rejoicing tempered by the realization that they will automatically hate anybody who dares to stand in front of the White House Press Room without regard to any actual skills or personality. On the other side, there is also excitement as potential replacements are flung about on Social Media as a replacement that would please them.
The reality is that the Press Secretary, once a needed buffer between the President and the press, is no longer needed let alone meaningful. Press statements are not delivered under oath, so really, why bother at all?
