Okay, I know this is syrupy propaganda. And staging dinners between the president and his adoring letter writers while the world is in a state of crisis is a sure sign of gravely misplaced priorities.
But I have to admit, I’m kind of a sap. I like a certain amount of sentimental nonsense in my day. A video of the press secretary calling up average Americans and telling them they’re going to have dinner with the president gets me every time.
Even if you don’t share my maudlin inclinations, I thought you might want to get to know what the new press secretary, Josh Earnest, is like. This video actually reflects his personality pretty well. Watchful ingenuousness, I’d call it.
