As a rule, the person who serves as White House Press Secretary is not supposed to make the news, just give out some daily information to the White House Press corps and move along.
But Sean Spicer became the story over the weekend with his bizarre first performance before the media, whining about how crowds for the Trump inauguration had been undercounted, which was a blatant lie.
MSNBC host Joy Reid weighed in on Spicer’s odd behavior, and provided photographic evidence showing that Spicer and Trump were indeed lying about the YUUGE numbers of people who showed up to watch Trump take the oath of office, addressing Spicer directly as she noted;
“You don’t even need to just trust your eyes, there’s also this. Numbers. According to the D.C. Metro as reported by the Washington Post, ‘570,557 took trips on the system throughout the entire day on Inauguration Day.’ Okay? The system saw 1.1 million trips on the same day in 2009. The number of television viewers has also dropped, according to Neilson from 2009, a 20 percent drop — apples to apples.”
Then after Reid had destroyed Spicer with every Trumpkin’s kryptonite–facts–she finished him off by commenting:
“In other words, Mr. Spicer, not the ‘largest number of people who viewed an inaugural, period.’ Not even close. And if you would lie to our faces about something that is as ultimately trivial as how many people watched your boss’ inaugural, how are we supposed to trust you when you walk out on that podium and give some grave and important statement about the nation’s national security? How are we supposed to trust anything that you say at all?”
Boom! Sean, you can pick your manhood up at the door on the way out.
