So it’s not like he’s trying to go incognito.”</p><p>”One of the things I was told today, Erin, is that some of his own senior staffers didn’t know he was going to take this trip,” said Bash. “And, therefore, there wasn’t time to or there wasn’t a preparation in place to at least try to explain it, which is part of the reason why it was so clumsy and muddied and just almost laughable, the variations of the attempted explanation. Because there wasn’t really one.
