United Airlines has gotten a pretty bad rap over the past few years. And to be quite honest, they deserve it. So, what they really need is someone who can turn PR lead into PR gold. Which is why they’ve hired … Josh Earnest?

More from the Washington Examiner:
United Airlines has hired Josh Earnest, President Barack Obama’s former press secretary, as its chief communications officer and senior vice president, the airline announced Thursday morning.
“Josh is a proven leader and world-class communications strategist who has thrived when the stakes are the highest — and the margin for error is the smallest. He’ll play a crucial role on our leadership team as we position our brand and this company for success,” United CEO Oscar Munoz said in a press release.
United said Earnest’s two decades of working in strategic communications and representing the White House to the media during his eight-year tenure indicate he will be able to “shape the airline’s public image.”
Josh Earnest going to United will be all the proof conservatives need to reconfirm that the Obama administration was staffed by multiple clones of the devil incarnate.

If United Airlines is placing their faith in Josh Earnest, they’re gonna need more help than we thought.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama described herself as America’s “Forever First Lady” at an event at Temple University in…
The Guardian over the weekend did an interview with Susan Sarandon about her general stance on politics. I found her stance on how the right attacked her:
“I’m not attacked from the right at all,” she will tell me. Instead, she is accused of not checking her white privilege, of throwing away her vote on a third-party candidate (the Green party nominee, Jill Stein) during the US presidential election, and of recklessly espousing a political cause that let Trump in through the backdoor. Liberals in the US, it seems, can summon more hatred for Sarandon right now than they can for Paul Ryan.
She talked about how she supported Hillary in 2001 and the nut jobs that where call her with threats:
It is often overlooked that in 2001, Sarandon supported Hillary Clinton’s run for the Senate. There are photos of them posing chummily together, grinning. Then Clinton voted for the war in Iraq and it all went downhill. During the last election, Sarandon supported Bernie Sanders, then wouldn’t support Clinton after she won the nomination, and now all the moderates hate her, to the extent, she says, that she had to change her phone number because people she identifies as Hillary trolls sent her threatening messages. “I got from Hillary people ‘I hope your crotch is grabbed’, ‘I hope you’re raped’. Misogynistic attacks. Recently, I said ‘I stand with Dreamers’ [children brought illegally to the US, whose path to legal citizenship – an Obama-era provision – Trump has threatened to revoke] and that started another wave.”
“No, from the left! ‘How dare you! You who are responsible for this!’”
The final point of note for was about war and deportation:
Did she really say that Hillary was more dangerous than Trump?
“Not exactly, but I don’t mind that quote,” she says. “I did think she was very, very dangerous. We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]. It wouldn’t be much smoother. Look what happened under Obama that we didn’t notice.”
It seems absurd to argue that healthcare, childcare, taxation for the non-rich wouldn’t be better now under President Clinton, and that’s before we get to the threat of deportation hanging over millions of immigrants. “She would’ve done it the way Obama did it,” says Sarandon, “which was sneakily. He deported more people than have been deported now. How he got the Nobel peace prize I don’t know. I think it was very important to have a black family in the White House and I think some of the stuff he did was good. He tried really hard about healthcare. But he didn’t go all the way because of big pharma.”
