Press secretary blows up when reporter throws wrench in White House’s Hollywood actor briefing

The cast of the comedy-drama “Ted Lasso” joined White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre at the White House briefing room podium on Monday as part of the Biden administration’s efforts to talk about mental health.

It did not go well, as Jean-Pierre was bombarded with questions and statements from reporter Simon Ateba of Today News Africa.

The awkward exchange could not have been more humorous if it had been scripted by actor Jason Sudeikis and his soccer-themed show’s other writers and then streamed on Apple TV+.
