I think I remember that guy. Wasn't he around for like the first day or so advising Trump on stationary styles before he quit because he didn't want to expose his family to the viciousness of Washington D.C. liberal vipers and hatemongers? Poor bastard, I hope he managed to find peace after being ground up and spit out by the Liberal Hate Machine™.

"Well, can I just amend? Obviously just to be clear, I know that- I'm trying to think through this for a second ... "

Poor Spicer, you are in a league of people who lying is as natural as breathing, this is clearly a job for Kelly Ann, she doesn't need to think through her lies.  She knows that it doesn't matter if it makes sense.

He's really bad at this.

Yes, I get that it is an impossible task, a Sisyphean nightmare with Rod Serling looking on and commenting as Spicy transforms into a dung beetle and tries to roll back the massive ball of shiat that is everything Trump has ever said or done. I get that.

I'm saying even in light of that Spicy is losing it.

Lying full time for Trump turned KAC into a faces of meth streetwalker as painted by Dali on bath salts and even she could have done a better job of it today.

Even CNN is calling shenanigans on Spicy's attempt to downplay Manafort's role both during the campaign and afterwords as well as his obvious involvement with Putin and various Putin allied oligarchs.

"Like a cheap rug" is my point here.

At some point, Trump is going to replace him with someone more loyal and less concerned about looking good, or even Presidential.  Someone who lives off media attention, and just stays on the point of the moment, which is subject to change on a Trump's whim.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer characterized one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort as someone who played "a very limited role for a very limited amount of time" on Monday.

Jesus, he isn't even trying to pretend about the lies anymore, is he?

Glenn BECK who actually employs her currently just recently called her out for logical and ideological inconsistencies in her supposed "libertarian" beliefs and her undying unquestioning support of Trump ..  Glen Beck,  pointed out her logical fallacies.......

SO what I'm saying is, she's pretty much a lock for the job

Paul was brought on sometime in June, and by the middle of August, he was no longer with the campaign

Manafort was, of course, hired in March, according to a Trump campaign press release

Yeah she just came out as pro-choice, so I'm sure her street cred in the conservative crew just got shredded.

Spicer a week from now:  Bannon and Pence were hangers-on, street trash really, lurking on White House grounds.  The President has always been his own Vice President.  Also...*Spicer is shoved out of sight*

Trump:  I've always been The President's spokesman!

Heh, sounds like there's a bus with Manafort's name on it coming down the road.

Newsflash to political media talkingheads, when Trump voters identify more with Russians because they're white that's not "nationalism".

I cant believe I actually watched the entire WH Briefing. Spicer is terrible at his job. He actually brought up Hillary Clinton and the DNC and why werent they being investigated

But the reporters are their own worst enemy. All they had to do after that entire so and so and so and so said there was no collusion..All they had to do was ask well Sean those same people are the ones telling the president there was no wiretapping happening. So why is the president insisting that it was ? You keep telling us that they are credible when it comes to saying their wasnt any collusion but whenthey say no wiretapping you say more time is needed

The guy from the NY times tried to go there but he never got to nail it down. There was another guy I liked who tried it as well. He gave Spicer a softie and then came back with the whopper.

Funny after the last but but but Hillary someone actually said from the gallery "Because you won, you're standing here"

Jesus, he isn't even trying to pretend about the lies anymore, is he?


Why should he? He is not talking to the press, or to you or me.

He is talking to his base, or those that believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

He doesn't care about the truth, because the truth is the soundbite he just made.

I think we can all agree it was for a limited amount of time and during the campaign we were all guessing that the campaign chairpeople never did have any sway over Trump..... or can we say a very limited role.

It will keep the whole screaming at the press thing going. They are going to need an AED near the podium at all times. Between he said what looks and the screaming at the press we may have quite a few cardiac events in that room.

She would probably work out fine. She enjoys lying to your face almost as much as lying in her back. Hell, she even has pussy to grab! Maybe Mrs Trump #4?

henryhill: Yeah, he was only around from jun-aug 2016. Also known as the time period that all this shiat went down.

Manafort, who at one point advised the pro-Putin Ukrainian strongman Viktor Yanukovych, resigned in August, days after the New York Times reported that $12.7 million in cash payments had been set aside for him in an off-the-books ledger by Yanukovych's political party.


Shush now, he just decided to spend more time with his family...

Yeah, Shiatty Spice gets zero sympathy from me. From the very beginning, he's been a jackass. Now, for a brief moment after things settled a bit after the first press briefing, for a tiny shred of a second, something deep within my already withered, pre-Whoville heart made me have an immeasurably small droplet of sympathy for him, because, objectively, his position is a rather tough, stressful one. This is not taking into account the train wreck of an administration starting with the loco-est of shiat locomotives up front. Day after day, trying to explain away or answer questions about the non-stop fire hose of scandal, corruption, bumbles, etc., only makes a tough job tougher.

But then he just kept at it, and that infinitesimally small fragment of sympathy Big Banged its way into a universe of disgust filled with enmity galaxies and schadenfreude nebulae. If he truly acknowledged the awfulness of the administration and his role in it, he would recognize that there was only one possible thing that he could do that would be the correct option. He would resign.

Tomorrow's press briefing looks to be starting on schedule, however,
