After answering an Obama administration’s Craigslist ad for a stenographer, the then-25-year-old Beck Dorey-Stein quit her five part-time jobs after she was hired to work in the White House in 2012 – joining a pool of 13 reporters from the White House press corps to travel with the president, recording everything he said and then transcribing it for the press office and presidential archive.
‘Traveling with the president is like summer camp on steroids – a week on the road is like a year at home‘, Dorey-Stein writes.
The “steroids” in this case would be a steady supply of pharmaceuticals – which staffers were constantly taking while cheating on their significant others on the road – such as senior staffer Jason Wolf.
Beck stayed on with the Trump administration – which she describes as the “insane clown posse,” adding “What was once joy has become ‘a waking nightmare. I’m now a stenographer in the Trump administration.”
We’re sure that can be fixed.
