A couple of quick things about Sean Spicer this morning. First, I cannot stop misspelling “Spicer” as “Spider.” I feel like that’s indicative of stuff.
Second, I kind of love how Spicer gets angrier and snottier the longer he’s on stage. Not, like, in an admiring way, though. Just because I like watching him have a bad time.
Third, I wonder how Spicer’s sleeping, since he has to carry all this water for a heinous administration. Today he had to justify an anti-semitic Holocaust Remembrance Day statement and imprisoning a five-year-old for Trump’s Muslim ban. Like, I wonder how many ulcers that gives a person. Or if it even bothers him at all.
If you’re looking for some good news after this weekend – and lord knows I am – you can take heart in the fact that donations to the ACLU and other organizations fighting the Muslim ban soared this weekend.
You can also rejoice at acting Attorney General Sally Yates announcing that the Justice Dept. won’t defend the Muslim ban in court. That’s probably a temporary thing since Yates will likely soon be replaced by a Trump appointee, but hey, take your wins where you can get ’em.
Also, Senate Foreign Relations Chair Bob Corker (R) says Congress might step in if something isn’t done about the Muslim ban.
Outcry works, people. Resist.
