Pearls from the mouth of Chris Jansing, the Barbie doll-like White House reporter for NBC news, all in one 5-minute report today:
“The administration acknowledges that they underestimated the ability of the Iraqi security forces to protect against ISIS…”
(Since the Iraqi security forces utterly failed, she meant they overestimated their ability).
Speaking of the President…”You could see his palpable reluctance …”
(“Palpable” means something you can feel, not see. It’s like saying you could smell the sound of his voice.)
“He reiterated once again…”
(Reiterating is saying once again).
I don’t think she was chosen for the job for her IQ. It is a visual medium. Just sayin’.
