AdvertisementAdvertisementAdvertisementIn , press secretary Jen Psaki explained the administration’s decision to suspend deputy press secretary TJ Ducklo for one week without pay after about a story. Psaki pointed out that Ducklo and her department apologized, and argued that the suspension was “a serious punishment.”Maybe it does seem like a serious enough punishment to Ducklo. (According to the People profile at the heart of the situation, he’s .)
