White House press secretary Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer is up to his old tricks again. After several months of claiming that the press spends too much time paying attention to President Twitter Fingas’ timeline, Spicy now claims that the president’s tweets are official statements from the president and should be treated as such.
This about-face on presidential positioning is par for the course from this ShamWow-ass administration, and falls in line with the president’s latest tough-talk tweets against the Department of Justice.
On Monday, Donald Trump unleashed a series of tweets blasting his own team for softening his position on banning travel from several Muslim countries.
Umm, ignoring the last tweet about the courts being slow and political, which sounds completely dictatorlike, Spicy, speaking of the tweets, confirmed during his daily press briefing Tuesday that “the president is the president of the United States. So they’re considered official statements by the president of the United States.”
This is a huge 180 even for this Beverly Hillbilly-ass administration, whose members have proved themselves to be huge 180-ists. Hell, just as early as Monday, top aide Kellyanne Conway claimed that the media had an “obsession with covering everything [Trump] says on Twitter, and very little of what he does as president.” And she denied that tweeting was Trump’s favored method of communication, even though Trump hasn’t given an interview since early May, Talking Points Memo reports.
This is actually awesome news for those of us who aren’t fans of this Willy Wonka-ass administration. For one, this means that no one can stop Trump from tweeting, which means we are literally going to continue to get all of the unfiltered gobbledygook that comes from this old man’s mind, and it will be the official word of the president.
Also, as if the first news weren’t awesome enough, Trump might live-tweet during ex-FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday, which would be all kinds of amazing.
And, last but not least, this means that the administration, e.g., Conway and Spicy Facts, will have to answer to all the stupid random word pudding the president keeps vomiting through his tiny little fingers.
I’m all for this and for this little-fingered emperor, who refuses to believe that he’s out here butt-ass naked.
