First of all, thank you for your kind assistance in advance.
I was just reading this article, and I encountered a personally unfamiliar expression.
Though Today long had been among Bush's ambitions, his hiring as the co-host of the 9 a.m. hour was somewhat controversial given his lack of hard-news experience and a snarky red carpet presence. ( 3rd paragraph ).
Now, first I had thought this might be an idiom, however when I googled, nothing came up so I resorted to Wikipedia just for some info.
Now, since according to Wikipedia,
A red carpet is also used in gala celebrity events
So I assume that "red carpet presence" would mean Bush would've gone to the stardom life, which did not come but on the contrary, and going back to the question, am I correct about catching the meaning of the core meaning of the "red carpet presence"?
Thank you for your support and I am sorry I have to say in advance I may be not able to answer or comment or upvote just in 6 hours.
Thank you very much (m_m)
