I haven’t had time to search my usual news sources yet today…but the prime minister of Pakistan visited the White House yesterday…and the only clips of the post meeting press conference showing up in social media show the president fielding all kinds of questions unrelated to Pakistan.
That totally sucks…and I blame both parties for this.
First the White House for destroying the press briefing and limiting access to the president and the press secretary.
And second the press for being so hungry that they can’t stay on topic. If I had been the prime minister I might have gotten up and left when they started asking questions about anything and everything else except my visit.
