White House spox can't explain what Ebola czar knows about Ebola

This clip is priceless. At today's White House press briefing, White House press secretary Josh Not-So-Earnest struggles to answer a question about what the new Obama Ebola czar, Ron Klain, knows about the Ebola virus.

That's because Klain knows nothing about it. But to justify his hiring, Earnest points to his time working with his old boss, Joe Biden, implementing the 2009 economic stimulus.

The stimulus was far from a success. Five years later the workforce participation rate is the lowest it has been since the malaise years of Jimmy Carter.

Meanwhile, the sarcastic #BetterEbolaCzars is gaining traction on Twitter.
