Once again with questions marks appears the way things are handled by the people running the White House.
Now the main attacks swirl against Sarah Huckabee Sanders, his Press Secretary.
For what reason? Because after a succession of very important events she remained in silence.
Even a journalist based in Miami, Otto Rodríguez, dedicated an article to the matter, "The Shocking Silence of the White House."
First he summarized the episodes of that stage: Protests in Charlottesville, the death of Heather Heyer at the hands of a white supremacist.
All amid the turmoil of a country more and more divided, and new tests of missiles in North Korea, among others.
Then he remembered that in such a scenario there was not even a single press conference.
Three weeks later, Rodríguez wrote, the spokeswoman Huckabee he spoke again to the credited press.
“It´s good to be back, [but] you don't seem thrilled. I thought there would surely be balloons here… or some other thing [to celebrate]. I imagine it will be next time."
After listening something like that, Rodríguez wondered where the common sense of the spokesmen of this Administration had gone.
“Is it perhaps a joke, or cynicism? Or just indifference in the need of the American public opinion of knowing what their leaders think about crucial events? "
Is perhaps the continuation of the wild war unleashed by Donald Trump's presidency against the American press?
On the next paragraph the journalist manifests his approaches on what triggers such process.
It’s very difficult to excuse a president that doesn't clearly stands against the white supremacists and Neo-Nazi of Charlottesville.
Who even estimated that in both sides there were "good people" during the clashes in that city of Virginia.
However, The Washington Post revealed a letter where the Trump’s top economic advisor, Gary Cohn, abandoned his position due to the violence caused by Nazi groups in that town.
Enough reasons to understand – up to a certain degree - the unusual silence of spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
