Isn’t the rule of thumb something like even though the report is shite―
Carl Higbie has interviewed for the position of White House press secretary, according to two senior administration officials familiar with the matter.
“Well, I can say that I’ve offered my services,” Higbie confirms for Washingtonian when reached by phone. “I haven’t heard back from the administration yet. I’m honored to be even considered for this.” Higbie says he has spoken with “a number of people” in interview rounds for the post.
Higbie interviewed for the position on Thursday, according to the sources. Higbie declined to confirm this. On Twitter Friday night after this story was originally published, Higbie said he has had no formal interviews.
―the #SpiceWatch is officially afoot?
Look, the report is shite because that’s how these reports go. Look at it. There is both nothing there, and everything. And this is the Beltway; that report only circulates for a reason.
If that’s not cultivated, then there is no message discipline anywhere in this White House. And in either case, the subetext is that Sean Spicer is officially on the block.
