Former FBI Director James Comey testified last week that Donald Trump was a lying liar who lied all the time. And ever since, we haven’t heard from Sean Spicer, noted surrogate-liar for our liar-president. But Spicer’s back, baby. And you can watch his press conference online.
After the Comey testimony, deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that the president “is not a liar,” which is false. But we’ll have to see what Trump’s liar-stooge Spicer has to say about all of this.
White House press briefings didn’t use to attract much attention from the public during previous administrations. But thanks to the rise of streaming video, and the unprecedented number of lies that are told by the Trump regime on any given day, each one has become a spectacle unto itself. You never know what kind of jaw-dropping idiocy is going to be revealed during these things.
Or perhaps spectacle isn’t the right word, as that can has some positive connotations. What’s the word for when something is on fire and you can’t look away as it consumes everything in its path? That. Whatever that is. Let’s call it that.
Hard to believe Trump has been president for just 143 days. But here we are. Let’s hope we survive another 143 at least.
