Watch Josh Earnest Completely Snow Morning Joe on Ebola Czar Appointment

This is a pro right here:

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Politico has an idea as to why Ron Klain was appointed Ebola Czar or whatever. Why was he chosen for the job? And the criticism he is receiving — that he’s too political, he’s a strategist, and he certainly doesn’t have emergency response experience — a lot of people are piling on, especially Republicans, that he may not be the right choice for the job.

JOSH EARNEST: The fact of the matter is, the response to this situation has been much broader than just medicine. This is not a medical response, this is a whole government approach we’re dealing with here. So we have a lot of doctors and scientists and medical experts we can deploy to deal with the problem. Right now at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, at the NIH right up here in Maryland, and at Emery Hospital down in Atlanta, we have doctors treating Ebola patients right now. They’re doing that successfully, they’re healing, some of them have already recovered. They’re doing that without exposing any significant risks to the health workers there. We understand how to do that.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: What happened at the CDC?

The proper followup to that is, “You didn’t come close to answering my question, you just listed locations of CDC hospitals to eat up time. In fact that response didn’t concern Ron Klain or the Ebola Czar position at all! Wanna try again?”

But Earnest got the MJ crew onto the CDC, on which he had a prepared answer. The next question was on ISIS, and away we went. Pro.
