Paul Begala on Bill Shine Leaving WH: The Titanic Didn’t Have a Comms Problem, It Had an ‘Iceberg Problem’


Former Clinton advisor Paul Begala reacted on CNN yesterday to Bill Shine leaving the White House by comparing the Trump administration to the Titanic.

Jake Tapper noted how the White House has circled through plenty of communications directors in under two years and that perhaps it’s not the comms department that’s the issue.

Begala said he used to tell Clinton they “have a communications problem,” before adding, “The Titanic didn’t have a communications problem, it had an iceberg problem. The Trump presidency has an iceberg problem.”

He added that Trump will get better press when he does a better job.
