Amid the swarm that has followed the Trump administration after firing FBI Director James Comey, the best bit comes from a Washington Post report revolving around White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and his ninja-like abilities of avoiding the press.
According to the report, Spicer wrapped up an interview with Fox Business on Tuesday night at the White House and then wanted to drop the bombshell news over an email statement. The message, however, wasn’t transmitting quickly enough, so Spicer emerged from the communications office to the WH press briefing room and shouted the statement from the doorway around 5:40 pm. He then went back into his office and had his staff lock the door.
Spicer along with Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders “were suddenly speed-walking up the White House drive” as Conway and Sanders went to go defend the President’s decision on cable news. During the sets, Spicer hid in the bushes for several minutes, and emerged after his executive assistant, Janet Montesi, told reporters that Spicer would answer some questions as long as it wasn’t filmed.
“Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off,” Spicer demanded. “We’ll take care of this. … Can you just turn that light off?”
While the cameras were off, we were blessed enough to obtain leaked footage of the whole charade.
