Inspirational Leadership Word of the Day: “Instructed.”
When American soldiers are blown up and many others killed, thousands more lives are at stake, Americans are left stranded, and millions of American citizens are tuned in to learn if you still have a clue what you are doing, avoid talking about getting “instructed”.
“Ladies and gentlemen, they gave me a list here. The first person I was instructed to call on was Kelly O’Donnell from NBC,” Biden kicked off the white House press conference.
As a once-credentialed member of the Whit House Press corps, I know the drill. The WH press office writes up their “cheat sheet” of favored journalists.
Nonetheless, several journalists were startled by his statement. One remarked, “Who’s in charge here?”
Careful, Mr. President. The world is watching and not everyone is entirely sure lately.
