Press Secretary Sean Spicer should probably think about retiring. Granted, it has only been just over 100 days, Spicer has spent more of that time being the news instead of reporting the news of the White House.
Every press conference Spicer hosts turns into a fiasco. Well, yesterday’s press briefing was no different.
On Monday, acting Attorney General Sally Yates testified before a Senate subcommittee as to her knowledge of former National Security Advisers Michael Flynn’s foreign ties.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked in a presser following the testimony:
‘Why did the President wait 18 days to fire Mike Flynn after the White House was informed of his conduct?.. You realize that the timing of this makes a lot of people think that he wouldn’t have been fired if the story had not come out in the media.’
Spicer claimed that “due process” was the reason for the delayed timeline.
‘I don’t think it’s a question of defending Mike Flynn or not. I think Mike Flynn is someone who honorably served our country in uniform over 30 years… as [Trump] has noted, Lieutenant General Flynn was asked for his resignation because he misled the Vice President… beyond that, I think he did have an honorable career… the President does not want to smear a good man.’
The press secretary went on to say that he feels it’s “important to note that she [Sally Yates] is someone who is not exactly a supporter of the President’s agenda.” Spicer also commented that Yates is “someone who was not exactly excited about President Trump.”
Who is excited about Trump?
