Regarding the Titanic, "I will let the iceberg's tweets speak for themselves."

When it comes to this new administration, being a reporter must be frustrating.

First, you have a president who just says anything. Anything at all. No proof, no evidence, just BLAHHHThisIsAThingI’mSayingAAAAHHHHHH.

Then, journalists scramble to fact-check. Followed by White House spokespeople coming out to defend the president by ... not defending the president at all. “I’ll let the president’s tweet speak for itself,” they repeat and repeat and repeat.

The White House’s surrogates are simply not very good at what they do. Can you imagine if they were the spokespeople during other major events in history?
