The easiest job in government, no doubt, is Press Secretary to the President. Traditionally, the main job of the Press Secretary is to hold a morning briefing for the reporters assigned to the White House. This is anything but a traditional White House.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders quit the job officially in June, but really stopped doing it three months earlier when she stopped holding the daily briefings. In her defense, she had admitted to the Meuller investigation that she had lied multiple times during the briefings, so there really wasn't much point in her trying to have one. Her replacement, who so far is missing in action, has yet to hold one. The only job in Washington easier than this one is being Vice President.
This doesn't mean that the President is ignoring the press or avoiding it. His ego wouldn't let him. Instead, he begins each day with a series of Tweets, which usually seem like they were written in a drug induced state. While he hasn't held a formal press conference in months, he always stops on the South Lawn to take reporters questions when he is leaving on a trip. If you ever get the chance to watch one of these q and a sessions, you should. It's really good television.
These sessions are a lot like those word association tests where someone says a word and you are supposed to say the first thing that comes to mind. Trump doesn't really answer questions, he reacts to them. He can Tweet something in the morning, then contradict it on the lawn, and then accuse a reporter of "fake news" if they point out the contradiction.
Last May he made a statement on the lawn that was outrageous, even for him. With a straight face he told a reporter, "I never said that Mexico was going to pay for the wall." Really? He made that promise the day he announced his candidacy, and repeated it every day, and at every rally.
Last week he held two of those South Lawn press conferences that were so full of BS that the White House gardener won't have to fertilize the lawn until years from now. Every head doctor in the country must be salivating at the chance to get Trump on their couch when he leaves office--if not sooner.
During the first conference, the President was upset over the news coverage of his visits to El Paso and Dayton that said that few people attended them. He decided to give his version, which was, well, pure Trump. He claimed that the hall of the hospital was so crowded that people couldn't move. He even claimed that surgeons interrupted operations to come out and shake his hand. The hospital, no doubt seeing lawsuits in its future, quickly put out a statement saying nothing like that happened. Sadly, the Trump base will believe his version.
Later in the week he held another lawn session where he just took shots at everybody. He called the Danish Prime Minister nasty because she called his attempt to buy Greenland, absurd. He again falsely claimed that the Obama Administration has separated families at the border, and that he had ended it. He looked up to the sky and pronounced himself , "The Chosen One", and later agreed with a blogger who named him the King of Israel.
The job of Press Secretary is east under President Trump because he doesn't really need one. He prefers to handle the job himself through his Tweets and informal press gatherings on the lawn. He has made the daily press briefing pointless. No matter how honestly a Press Secretary may try to be with reporters, Trump can turn them into liars by changing his mind later, or just denying he said or did something. That pretty much leaves the Press Secretary with little to do except cash a pay check.
