New White House Press Secretary Dishes to Politico

Fresh-faced White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest knew exactly what to do in order to celebrate his first day on the job: talk to Politico!

Some revelations: he has an Instagram account; he thinks Obama should take more questions; he accurately describes the (un)lucky soul who has his job as “the point person for all the frustration” of WH correspondents (not to mention voters).

Now who wants Mr. Earnest’s job? Serious candidates only.
