White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the last person I would hire for any job that deals with news and events.

Nixon - Election - Pat - Brown - Press
Nixon lost that 1962 election to Pat Brown, then bitterly and famously announced that the press wouldn’t have Dick Nixon to kick around “anymore.”
Ron joined a national ad/PR agency working for Bob Haldeman in the Los Angeles office. I returned to fulltime studies at San Diego State.
