In recent days the president and his supporting staff have conducted noon press conferences updating the American public about efforts to address the coronavirus. This is a welcome development.

However, I can’t help but notice how many staffers feel it is necessary to mention the president in their remarks. It seems a culture exists in this administration that expects people to praise the president in every presentation.

Vice President Pence seems particularly inclined to “polish the teacher’s apple.”
