President-elect Donald Trump’s press secretary recently humiliated himself on national television by begging the American people to stop mocking his boss.
While a guest on ABC’s “This Week” Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer told host George Stephanopoulos he is sick and tired of the public treating the soon to be 45th President of the United States with the contempt he so richly deserves.
The whine began during Spicer’s best rendition of a clown crying crocodile tears. He said:
The idea is everyone wants to talk about the tweets he sent. But I would actually focus on the action he’s getting. Donald Trump is not president yet and he’s getting action, successes and wins, both abroad and here at home.
It seems Spicer does not understand the concept that words matter, particularly from Trump who will soon be the most powerful and influential man in the world. One struggles to find what “wins” Spicer was bellowing on about as Trump has already been humiliated in the foreign policy arena by the Chinese government during the military drone fiasco in the South China Sea. Spicer went on with his babbling tirade:
Everything he does right now, he gets — he speaks for the head of Sprint, gets 5,000 jobs moved from abroad. And everyone starts to mock him. Oh, those jobs were already announced. They weren’t. The sales jobs have been a previous announce. These jobs were coming from abroad to America.
Trump has been caught numerous times attempting to take credit for jobs he had no part in influencing. He took credit for saving jobs at Ford which he did not. Trump claimed to have savied jobs at Carrier, which he personally profited from and the “saved” jobs were non-existent. Spicer’s bellaching is in regards to the recent lie by about being the force behind Sprint bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States, except the plan had already been in place since April.
Spicer then finished his plea to the American people to ignore reality and to only listen to the Trump team’s propaganda when he said, “And instead of trying to mock him or undermine him, it’s time that people started to give him credit for actually getting things done.”
How dare the American people mock Trump who has done an impressive job of humiliating himself and degrading the American population on the world stage? Furthermore Spicer, along with the many other Republicans parroting the talking point of working with Trump, certainly have a mountainous amount of gall.
Trump and his supporters were pledging an open revolt and rebellion if the election did not go their way. Now that the election has been stolen, in large part by the Russian government, the electorate is supposed to suddenly forget all of the reasons why Trump is a laughing stock? Spicer is living in a fantasy version of reality where the facts on the ground do not exist. Unfortunately so do many of Trump’s supporters who turn a blind eye to the litany of facts which contradict their cheery narrative.
