It’s been confirmed: Team Obama’s post-White House search for self-awareness has come up emptier than a Rachel Maddow scoop about Trump’s tax returns:

“What do you think,” Jansing asked Earnest, “would motivate him to get back involved in the public debate in a way that he’s not willing to do right now?”

Josh is so very back:
