The National Journal’s Ron Fournier wrote an article Wednesday on the Dallas Ebola outbreak. Fournier posed five questions regarding the enlarging outbreak, one of which he received a mocking response from an unnamed Obama White House official.

“Should the president go to ground zero? It’s one thing to tell Americans they’re safe. It’s another to show it. What message would Obama send by visiting federal, state, and local health care officials in Dallas? I care. We’re on top of this. You’ll be OK. In addition, Obama could personally thank first-responders on the nation’s behalf, which can’t be done enough. I asked a White House official about this idea. He laughed. “We don’t do grandstanding,” he said. “It would be a circus.” Still, he didn’t rule it out.”
