Another day, another fiasco in the catastrophic life of Sean Spicer.
The White House Press Secretary is a human trainwreck whose ability to humiliate himself on a global scale is truly unmatched.
Following the *extremely suss* firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sean Spicer pretty much gave up on trying to justify it to the rabid White House Press Corps.
The Washington Post has detailed the incident in its entirety, and it is truly glorious.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer wrapped up his brief interview with Fox Business from the White House grounds late Tuesday night and then disappeared into the shadows, huddling with his staff behind a tall hedge. To get back to his office, Spicer would have to pass a swarm of reporters wanting to know why President Trump suddenly decided to fire the FBI director.
After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes behind these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told reporters that Spicer would answer some questions, as long as he was not filmed doing so.
IN THE BUSHES. HE WAS LITERALLY HIDING IN THE BUSES.
According to WaPo,
“Spicer then emerged. “Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off,” he ordered. “We’ll take care of this. … Can you just turn that light off?”
I want to say this is a new low for Spicer, but…he’s just had so many blunders that I don’t know if that’s even true.
Between his accidental holocaust denial, bumbling of the inauguration crowd and not knowing how to pronounce the name of basically any world leader, he’s racked up quite the blooper reel.
This latest gaffe is like something from a piece of biting political satire, but somehow it’s real life.
Sean Spicer has achieved the incredible feat of transcending satire.
Bravo, Mr Spicer. Encore!
