The guy is bad and he's tough to watch. Hes had his moments where hes ok and it looks like he kinda gets it but theyre just too infrequent. I thought maybe after the first couple of weeks he'd grow into the position but it hasnt happened. This dude simply cannot be the mouthpiece of the administration. I think its time that he quits to spend more time with his family.
There is no one in the world who could do that job without looking like a stupid douche. Conway looks just as bad, they're being asked to defend a constant stream of indefensible derps. It's just not possible. The job basically is to look stupider than the President to take some of the heat.
GCHQ, our NSA equivalent, has taken the highly unusual step of breaking its usual radio silence to deny spying on Trump for Obama, a theory advanced by Trump surrogates to explain why there's no evidence from US agencies and actually repeated by Spicer from the podium. Fucking crazy.
'John, it's Gus from the NSA'
'Gus old man, how you doing old fruit?'
'Listen John, about this Trump spying shit..'
'No worries old boy, stiff upper lip, mum's the word, what?'
'Actually we'd like you to come out and deny it, we can't say shit because he's got this paranoid thing about deep state intel conspiracies and it's just fucking embarrassing'
'No can do old boy, we don't comment you know'
'We picked up a Katy Perry sextape on the icloud..'
[... long silence...]
'Hang on Gus, I'm dialling the NYT on the other line. You'd better not send me a rickroll.'
Heard this on the news this morning in regard the GHCQ thing, what a fucking joke. The guy is a genuine fucking idiot, "when the POTUS said wiretapping he didnt mean wiretapping he meant something else"...."How do you know huh, how do you know, were you there huh, were you, well, well..??"
Hes got a tough job no doubt. But that is the job. No one said the Press Secretary position would be easy; especially for an R POTUS under the best of circumstances let alone with a press corp hell bent on taking him down. I hated Axeldouche with a passion because he was so good at it. Even during the rare occasions the press would hold the Obama administrations feet to the fire he kept his cool and spun like a MFer.
Spicer just doesnt have the cool demeanor to take the heat and spin it properly.
Everything reported on the MSM is fake news...but when a guy on Fox launches some nonsense charge...this dipshit reads it verbatim as the sole reasoning for "looking into it further". This is really testing the limits of absurdity now.
