White House press secretary Jay Carney announced Friday he’s stepping aside after serving as President Obama’s top spokesperson since 2011.
1. Punching Bag
Under Carney, White House reporters were often stymied by reduced access and non-answers to their questions. Why not just print out the talking points of the day and allow journalists to take out their frustration on the heavy bag?
An inanimate object for less-violent types.
3. Troll Face
Just display this guy on a projector screen during press briefings. U mad?
This lunatic prop comic’s routine made about much sense, and drew as many laughs, as Carney’s explanation for the lack of photographer access to the president.
5. Jose Canseco
He said he’s available and he’s got all the time in the world. Has 515,000 followers on Twitter and a healthy disdain for the media.
