early and awkward

She may be less than four years old and have a history of making a few political gaffes, but Siri proved once again that she is an expert at not answering questions: After interrupting a reporter asking about Iran at a White House press briefing on Thursday, she said, “Sorry, I’m not sure what you want me to change.” So, if Siri starts telling you that she will have to refer you to someone else when you ask her to play a song on Spotify or tells you that you already know the answer to the question you’re asking, don’t worry. She’s probably just angling for Press Secretary Josh Earnest’s job.
