A lie with a smile is still a lie!
Sean Spicer’s appalling answer about economic data shows how far we’ve lowered the bar for Trump
At Friday’s press briefing, Sean Spicer told an absurd lie
to the assembled members of the White House press corps.
But he did it with a smile
rather than a snarl,

The issue was the release this morning
of a which many Republicans
took the opportunity
to crow about.
Given the frequency with which candidate Trump
had questioned the integrity of government economic data
(calling them “phony numbers” and “one of the biggest hoaxes in American politics”),
the question went, was President Trump confident that today’s report was accurate?
Sean Spicer marched into his daily briefing
with reporters on Friday wearing his flag pin upside down.

we need to find a new term for these
whose only goal in life
is to stoke fear
in order to put more dollars in their pocket.
