Obama aide Ben Rhodes ridiculed the press in a New York Times magazine profile in which he’s quoted as saying the White House used the media to peddle their lies about the Iran deal:

The aide, who is 38, dismissed the D.C. press corps as a group of puppets who lack the expertise necessary to cover major foreign policy debates.

“All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” Rhodes told the magazine. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo.”

He said the average reporter the White House talks to “is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”

That isn’t anything the White House thinks can’t be fixed with a box of doughnuts!

Gee, why didn’t Earnest & McDonough bring somebody else with them?

Unlikely to happen soon!

Their plans always do.
