As former White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest worked alongside President Barack Obama on the campaign trail, in the Oval Office and aboard Air Force One. Now a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, the Kansas City native draws on a decade of insider access, where he helped the Leader of the Free World manage and react to urgent developments in politics, business and national security. Mr. Earnest stood before the White House press corps each day for three years and in doing so earned a reputation for uncommon poise under an intense spotlight where there is no margin for error.
“The thing that I try to remember is that in the briefing room it's not a debate. I'm not supposed to go in there and win a debate with the press corps. If that's what I try to do, then I'm going to lose.”— Josh Earnest
