  • Former Obama Official Accuses Spicer Of Lying. When Spicer Brings Up Benghazi – Silence

    01/05/2018 10:39:42 AM PST · by rktman · 8 replies ^ | 1/4/2018 | Benny Johnson
    Former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer gave an extended interview to HLN’s S.E. Cupp Thursday evening. Spicer, who is best known for his combative presence behind the press podium in the early months of the Trump presidency, defended the president but admitted he made “mistakes” during his time in the administration. During one segment of the hour-long interview, Cupp brought on Van Jones to debate Spicer. Jones briefly served as the green energy czar to the Obama administration before being fired for controversial political activity. Jones began his remarks with a broadside against the Trump administration and Spicer, saying that...

    The national media’s relationship with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has taken on a new tension over the last month, as journalists and news commentators have grown more and more personal in their hostility toward the Trump administration’s top spokeswoman.Several high-profile columnists and writers have torn into Sanders over the last few weeks to mock her appearance, the way she talks, and most recently, an alleged disdain she showed the press by asking them at a briefing this week to say why they are thankful this holiday season. “Sanders’s sudden shift from press secretary to minister’s daughter a few...

    Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been denied a paid contributor position at all five of the major news network due to a “lack of credibility.” Spicer, who resigned from his post in August, has been exploring cable news punditry as a future career option, but his representatives were unable to secure a contract with any of the major outlets, according to NBC News. “They won’t touch him,” a media industry executive familiar with those conversations told NBC news.

    The internet was ablaze on Monday with debate over whether the Emmys broadcast — and the after-parties that followed — had helped rehabilitate the image of the former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. James Corden was in one of the most incriminating photographs, caught trying to give Mr. Spicer a kiss on the cheek. On “The Late Late Show” on Monday, Mr. Corden first tried denying it, taking a page from the Spicer-Trump playbook. “Now, I know you think that’s a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer, but in the spirit of Sean Spicer, no, it isn’t.” — JAMES...
  • Sarah Huckabee Sanders Is Worse Than Sean Spicer

    <p>Yes, the press secretary is better at her job. But that is bad news for the rest of us.</p> <p>The face of the White House press operation has already undergone several iterations, with each embodying the administration in their own special way. First was Sean Spicer, who exemplified the administration’s comfort with telling bald lies and being openly hostile toward the news media. Then came Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, who was Donald Trump’s vulgarity incarnate. Now we have Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose style as press secretary is less shrill than Spicer, and less pelvic-thrusting bravado a la The Mooch. But that’s what makes her the most insidious of them all.</p>

    Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election.   In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won.

    ean Spicer is taking his first steps to transition from the White House briefing room to the bright lights of a TV news studio — but he’s also being courted by “Dancing with the Stars,” Page Six has learned. The outgoing press secretary spent the day in New York City in talks with major broadcasters about a new career in TV where he can share his insider knowledge of President Trump. Spicer, who announced his resignation Friday, was seen coming out of high-level meetings at ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News in Manhattan, according to sources. A source told us...

    On Monday, the Democrats rolled out their new Papa Johns-plagiarized slogan: “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.” The slogan was so silly, so hokey, so obviously not having to do with anything today’s Democrat Party is all about that even the Democrat operatives at MSNBC mocked it mercilessly (though CNN dutifully played along). The Party’s strategy, of course, was to yet again attempt to fool the American people that it had a focus on jobs and helping the average American have a better life. The truth, of course, is that the Party and its agenda were long...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson may be considering resigning from his job as frustrations with the Trump administration may have him nearing the end of his rope. People "familiar with Tillerson conversations with friends outside Washington" told CNN the mood in Foggy Bottom's Mahogany Row has grown increasingly dark in recent days, particularly since President Donald Trump gave an interview to The New York Times in which he publicly rebuked Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Tillerson and others are said to also be troubled by the turmoil at the White House, resulting in last week's shake up of Trump's legal team,...

    Give Joe Scarborough credit. Just when we were getting bored with all the Trump/Nazi analogies, Joe has come up with a new one. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough compared Trump press secretary Sean Spicer to an old Soviet spokesman and propagandist. Scarborough’s beef was that Spicer had supposedly said that the meeting of Trump campaign people including Donald, Jr. and the Russians was “just about adoptions.” Joe called that a “lie.” But have a look at the screenshot below, showing what Spicer actually said.

    At Monday’s audio-only and photos-only White House press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta continued to make a fool out of himself, melting down and screaming at press secretary Sean Spicer over the current set-up for briefings. Acosta first interrupted after a female reporter didn’t get her question answered. When he yelled at Spicer to answer her question, Spicer lobbed some A+ shade at Acosta: “There's no camera on, Jim.”‘There’s No Camera on, Jim!’ Showboating CNN’s Acosta Yells at Spicer Over Press AccessThe CNN liberal immediately took Spicer’s bait, screaming as Spicer tried to move on: “Maybe we...

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer has one of the hardest jobs in Washington. He’s almost constantly under fire from an increasingly unsympathetic public and the frustrated reporters he works with every day. He must be the first White House press secretary whose battles in the briefing room are so memorable that they’ve inspired their own recurring sketch on “Saturday Night Live.” As the president has reportedly told people, “the guy gets great ratings.” And his missteps make news. Witness Spicer’s comments in April that Adolf Hitler “didn’t sink to using chemical” weapons the way Syrian President Bashar Assad had....

    RUSH: You know, the more you get into this, the worse it actually is. Listen to this. This is from the Washington Post story with the headline: “Eight Ways Trump Got Rolled in His First Budget .” This, in the Washington Post, is their number one roll, and it’s understandable. The only thing that didn’t get any money in this budget is Trump’s wall. Everything else — including everything Trump opposes — got a budget increase. Try this: “There are explicit restrictions to block the border wall. “We knew last week there would be no money to start construction on...

    During Wednesday’s White House briefing, NBC reporter Hallie Jackson asked if President Trump was “expending too much political capital on a race that Republicans should be winning easily,” referring to Georgia’s special congressional election. In response, Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the absurd liberal media narrative that it was a “symbolic” or “emotional” victory for Democrats despite their candidate falling short. "“I thought that some of the coverage was a little intriguing as I watched it....Democrats went all in on this race. They spent over $8.3 million. They said on the record that their goal was to win this race....
