The new press secretary's name, Jen Psaki, and the question about how it is pronounced reminds.....

....me of President Ford's press secretary Jerry terHorst. A Doonesbury comic strip of a post-Nixon press conference had a reporter asking Mr. terHorst if he would mind changing his name because it looked like a typo, to which he replied "No problem". It was especially funny because it underscored a new, fresh beginning with the press, after the lies and obfuscations of the Nixon years. Ron Ziegler used to be the gold standard for lying press secretaries, but by Trumpian standards he was truly bush league.
