. won’t stop the selfie line. It’s not just about the photos. It’s about what people tell her in line, the notes they pass her. Not everyone is brave enough to publicly ask a question. But for a few seconds w/EW they have their chance. That’s the way democracy should be.

Trump, Pence, Pompeo, Mnuchin, Esper, the National Security Advisor (TBD), Dunford (as military advisor), Maguire (as Intel advisor). And then, Mulvaney, Cipollone, and—god help us—Kudlow as the always-invited supernumeraries.
