But yesterday Principle Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked who was in charge of handling the crisis. She laughed out loud and said she did not know

Who is running point on the formula issue at the White House? You mentioned the White House is involved," a reporter asked. 

"At the White House, I don't know," Jean-Pierre said while laughing. "I can find out for you and get you a person who is running point."
