White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest congratulated Ebola responders Wednesday for being named TIME’s Person of the Year.
“Health care workers on the front lines of the Ebola fight certainly aren’t in it for the recognition, but today their heroism and selflessness was on display because of TIME magazine’s decision to name them its person of the year,” Earnest said at the top of his daily press briefing. “The Administration, including the President, could not be prouder of the brave men and women who’ve committed themselves to this effort in a foreign land.”
