We’re not gonna lie, watching White House Press Secretary Sean “Spicey Spice” Spicer’s daily responses to Trump’s crazy antics is our new guilty pleasure. We started the year off mainly feeling sorry for this stammering, short-tempered man who was clearly in over his head. Trying to put a positive spin on the outrageous shenanigans of a giant orange baby-man would have been a tough job for even the most seasoned of Press Secretaries, let alone poor inexperienced Spicey.
I mean, we are talking about the guy who claimed Hitler never used chemical weapons,
You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons
and then clarified to say what he meant was, he didn’t use them on his own people so the mass genocide of millions of Jews was somehow better than Syrian President Bashar Assad’s chemical bombing of his own citizens:
He was not using the gas on his own people the same way that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad is doing…He brought them into the Holocaust center, I understand that. But I’m saying in the way Assad used them, where he went into towns, dropped them down to innocent — into the middle of towns.
But for all of his faults, we have kind of started looking forward to Spicer’s press briefings. So much so that when Trump does or says something crazy, our first thought is “I can’t wait to see how Spicey handles this during today’s briefing.”
According to a White House confidant quoted by Axios Sunday morning, Trump is “frustrated and angry with everyone” that things are not going his way lately and rather than looking in the mirror is threatening to replace top cabinet picks like Spicer, top strategist Steve Bannon and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. The confidant goes on to state,
The advice he’s getting is to go big — that he has nothing to lose, he question now is how big and how bold. I’m not sure he knows the answer to that yet.
Trump himself has been dodging the question on Spicer’s fate amid unconfirmed reports that he is considering replacing the Press Secretary with one of his BFF’s from Faux News.
So just in case he does indeed cancel The Spicey Spice Show, we wrote this goodbye note for our bumbling little friend:
Want me to let you in on a little secret? We actually really like you. Remember that time you hid in the bushes to get away from the Press? LOL! I bought one of those little “Sean Spicer” poster heads and stuck it in the bushes to surprise my Mom on Mother’s Day. She’s your biggest fan. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for all of the laughsJ I think we can all agree that you did the best you could considering the hand you were dealt.
