(Rare) Yesterday CNN’s Jim Acosta asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest an important question about new Ebola czar Ron Klain: “What does Ron Klain know about Ebola?”
Klain is a career political operative who formerly served as chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden and doesn’t appear to have any substantive medical experience.
Earnest had a tough time answering Acosta’s question.
“What we were looking for was not an Ebola expert, but rather an implementation expert,” he finally said. “That’s exactly what Ron Klain is.”
