The first question to the White House press secretary was a simple one: “How is the president?”
“He’s a good guy.
And we’ll get to that later.”
It was an interesting exchange for a White House where journalists often have to resort to the press secretary for information.
But in the press briefing room, Inslee made a much more specific answer: “He loves the press and is a fan of what we do here.
He’s not going to talk about his health, or what he does.”
Inslee was also asked to clarify how he feels about President Donald Trump’s ongoing health issues, and his response was almost always more of the same: “I am very excited about the work we are doing here.
I’m not going anywhere.
He is the one who is doing that, and I’m going to work on that.”
Inslees’ response to the president’s health concerns was also predictable: “We’re not going away.”
Insley’s response to questions about the Trump administration’s policies on the opioid crisis is equally predictable.
“He said we’ve got a great system, but it’s going to take time, and he doesn’t want to get ahead of it.
And I think that’s an important message.”
Insleys answer to the questions about climate change is also predictable.
He said “we’ve got to get off fossil fuels,” and that we’re “looking at what it’s gonna take to get to 100 percent renewables.”
Insler also talked about how he thinks climate change will be solved in the next 10 years.
“The answer to that is, we’re gonna solve it, and that’s what’s going on.
And so, if we’re going to solve this, we need to start at the bottom.”
