When a sitting president alleges that a former president broke the law, that’s serious business. No, we can’t just let it go, no matter how much Sean Spicer wishes we would. Spicer continues to make the idiotic claim that President Donald Trump’s tweet about Obama wiretapping him didn’t really mean wiretapping.
Because, you know, quotes.
In yesterday’s press briefing, Spicer said:
“I think that there’s been a vast amount of reporting, which I just detailed, about activity that was going on in the 2016 election. There was no question that there was surveillance techniques used throughout this. … The president has already been very clear that he didn’t mean specifically wiretapping. He had it in quotes. So I think to fall back on that is a false premise. That’s not what he said. He was very clear when he talked about it yesterday.”
Don’t feel bad if you didn’t quite follow that. The neverending word salads put out by this administration rival Olive Garden, and you don’t even get delicious breadsticks along with them.
CNN’s Don Lemon, however, was having none of Spicer’s gibberish. After playing the clip, a somewhat stunned Lemon just laughed and said:
“Did anyone see Billy Madison? The game show scene? ‘Everyone in this room is dumber for having listened to that.'”
Watch the entire clip from Billy Madison, because Lemon is spot-on with that comparison:
I don’t know about you, but it feels to me like we’re getting dumber by the day — by the hour, even — as we listen to the horseshit being shoveled out by the likes of Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, the entire Republican party, and the POTUS himself. Thankfully there are people like Don Lemon, who continuously call them out for what they say and do.
