Sean Spicer tried to shoot down Hillary Clinton’s Tuesday statement to WNYC that she would have been considered a “genius” if she had been the first woman to win the United States presidency. This morning, he tweeted, “And ‘if’ I’d won the lottery, I would be rich.”
But Keith Olbermann took Spicer’s diss and raised him, saying, “And ‘if’ you hadn’t been a propagandist and a liar, you might have escaped the damnation of history.”
And "if" you hadn't been a propagandist and liar, you might have escaped the damnation of history. https://t.co/EUpRFgdWsy

Clearly, you best not come for Hillary, if you want to escape Olbermann’s wrath.
It’s especially ironic that Spicer would attack Hillary for not winning the presidency (despite winning the popular vote), when he himself was forced to resign from the worst presidential administration in history and couldn’t get work as a commentator on Fox News.
But I guess he has plenty of time to snipe from the sidelines, now that he’s out of a job.
