Well, this explains a few things: Well, all right. It looks like Sean Spicer does not take us for complete idiots after all. He was merely acting on orders from his extremely insecure boss. At this point I actually feel sorry for Spicer. That statement made him a laughing stock and spawned a lot of internet mockery. I will say, Spicer looked a lot more competent at his press conference yesterday. And this is both sad and scary, because it says Trump's ego is so inflated it is totally out of touch with reality and constantly in need of boosting. Boy, do I feel bad for anyone who works for him. Except, probably, Kellyanne Conway.
