Guys? White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Has Lost His Freaking Mind
So, here's a preview of the next four years. Or months, if this man doesn't get his blood pressure under control. It's Sean Spicer, lying on orders from the boss, claiming -- with no evidence -- that the Orange Man's inauguration had "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, PERIOD."
"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration -- period," Trump White House press secretary claims https://t.co/ICcog0Ivxt— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) January 21, 2017
You see, the crowd "looked smaller" because there were white coverings on the mall that had never been used before, making the blank spaces stand out. Uh-huh. Except:
For another, stop believing your lying eyes, it was a record crowd, and definitely not smaller than Barack Obama's in 2009. MAGNETOMETERS!!!!!
Then there's the screaming at the Time reporter Zeke Miller -- Spicer didn't bother naming him -- who mistakenly tweeted that a bust of Martin Luther King had been replaced by a bust of Churchill. Except that once the error was pointed out to him, he issued a correction, as one does, and Sean Spicer accepted the apology.
He appears to have forgotten that completely now.
And no questions allowed. This is the new abnormal.
Now, obviously, this is VERY, VERY IMPORTANT, and is going to completely overshadow the story about the millions of people who marched against Trump worldwide today. If we let it.
We're not going to let it.
The defenses of Melania Trump's plagiarism are beginning to get a little silly. Imagine that!
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
