    That's why he's moving on to be an outside consultant to the re-elect campaign committee, huh. That'll be far less stressful.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's a damn difficult job and I have little doubt he's burned out. Best of luck to him.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Wow, another example of this so called “humor” people keep on referring to.

    Here's an example of real humor after Sarah Palin got caught with talking points written on her palm.

    Agreed. He's done his job well. I don't lots of things he's done or how he's approached them, or the writing on the hand incident. The press secretary however is there to do a specific function and he did it and was a strong face in front of the press.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It is just at times he has come off rather childish and it just seemed unprofessional. If it wasn't for the childish that appeared I would have thought he was a pretty good Press Secretary.

    Ouch Chappy, that sure did hurt.

    I understand sometimes my jokes suck, such as in this thread... but I mean, it stands to reason that for the story itself, who really gives a flying toss? The Janitor of the white house is more useful then the Press Secretary.
