Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has become an annoyance for Donald Trump ever since he was ousted from the administration.
When Spicer resurfaced at the Emmy Awards to mock Trump a few weeks ago, it became clear that Spicer had revenge on his mind. Recently, Spicer reminded America that he was far from finished. Earlier this week, Spicer scored a fellowship at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Responsible for sculpting young minds interested in politics, Spicer is already proving that he’s going to be just as bad at this as he was at being press secretary.
HuffPost senior reporter Ashley Feinberg interviewed some of Spicer’s students, asking them what they’ve been learning from Trump’s former mouthpiece. The results were shocking. One student said:
“The entire thing was just a defense of every waking moment he served.”
“He’s incredibly inarticulate, so it was really difficult to take any sort of notes.”
Basically, the take-home message that students got from Spicer was, “I’m a spokesperson for the president, and my job is to say what he wants me to say,” – which is pretty much how Spicer answered to inquiries about why he lied for Trump.
Students stated that Spicer also defended the Trump administration’s love for alternative facts. Students claimed he argued:
“An alternative fact is 3+1=4 or 4+0=4. Those are alternative facts. A lie is 3+2=4. Alternative facts are legitimate tools to use in politics.”
And as if all of this wasn’t bad enough, Spicer also took a moment to trash his former job, stating that White House press briefings were a waste of time. Spicer confessed:
“I regret a lot of things. I regret things every day of my life, and I apologize.”
We would regret working for Trump, too.
