The State Department press secretary went out and prattled off her talking points, none of which had any substance, none of which she could defend and then got grilled to a crisp by reporters who were laying in wait for her. There was mocking, there was laughing, there was humiliation. Why?
Did anyone learn anything? Did anyone expect to learn anything? This is no different from the pointless sessions with the President's press secretary who spouts political talking points and then gets toasted over an open fire when his statements are clearly stupid. When his statements aren't clearly stupid, they still don't seem to have any value. It's just one person standing up in front of a bunch of other people flapping his gums to no effect.
Unless there's some national need to watch young civil servants be destroyed in video clips, we ought to exercise mercy and stop this whole thing.
