Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn't have an easy job. He had to answer questions from journalists everyday about his boss, the President of the United States, and all of the drama that has been pouring out of his administration. But (though he looked stressed out right up until his resignation) Spicer did cover for all those things. He tried, anyway.
Spicer is on some sort of redemption tour, which means he is subjecting himself to public questions again. On Thursday, he appeared on HLN with S.E. Cupp and faced some of her questions about the inauguration and his comparison to Hitler when discussing Bashar Assad and bombing Syria. And more. There were a lot of lies to cover.
"There were times where I screwed up. There's no question about," said Spicer. "The inauguration. You brought it up. I would say that's first and foremost. There was an event where I was trying to talk about how evil [Bashar] Assad was, and I screwed that up royally."
Most of the interview is Spicer asking for citations and claiming he doesn't remember most of the lies he told. Then in a conversation with Van Jones, he does admit to making some "mistakes." Okay.
No one is really willing to accept Spicer's rewrite of his own personal history:
You didn’t make mistakes, you lied! You have no integrity Sean Spicer!— FRANCO (@sfevolve) January 5, 2018
pathetic... why can't he just say "I should have just walked away - it was wrong"... but no, he just doesn't have the character or integrity to do so.— Cathy Forbes (@cathyforbes71) January 4, 2018
I had to stop watching at but Benghazi. Spicer is a joke. Benghazi has nothing to do with his daily lies to the American people and in no way justifies or excuses his actions. Whataboutism is not okay.— Lenabenas (@lenabenas21) January 4, 2018
