Gizzi then ramped up the levity by asking “Is he following the race for governor of Texas? And has he called Matthew McConaughey and urged him to run for governor?” Amid guffaws from the press, a broadly-smiling Psaki replied “I can confirm there have been no calls to Matthew McConaughey from this office that I am aware of or tracking.” Psaki added: Of course, the President sees his role as governing the country, leading the country, unifying the country. He is also the leader of the Democratic Party. He’s been in politics — involved...
