    Like her father she is a true believer, which means "god" is behind every one of her statements, truthful or otherwise, if it furthers a conservative "Christian" agenda. Spicer has some remnant of a conscience which fights him at every turn and gets him flustered. The Huckabees can spout every lie imaginable and still pass a polygraph.

    Typically when Spicer has a mental breakdown it is associated with him showing up for work, so I don't think it's that.

    This firing happened yesterday, I had to chuckle when she claimed she had spoken to multiple people, (the word she used was countless,) at the FBI who agreed with the firing and when asked about who, her answer reminded me of Indiana Jones "people" (texts, emails)... right. ;)

    Isn't he on Navy Reserve duty right now?

    ETA: Yes he is.

    I'm amazed Sean Spicer hasn't already had a mental breakdown, having to justify all the crazy stuff Trump does. This reserve duty will at least delay it for a while.

    I'm guessing the Navy will put Spicer in charge of telling North Korea which way the Carl Vinson is headed.

    I'll comment as a former USN Officer, I'm a bit distressed listening to the dishonesty of a fellow officer on a daily basis.

    I kind of admire the guy for being able to take an intellectual beating from all sides.

    How convenient that he is out of the spotlight the same week Melissa McCarthy is scheduled to host SNL. I'm sure that's all just one big coincidence. ;)

    Well there's one way to find out. Do a FOIA request for his training schedule. Heck you might even be able to find it online if we knew what unit he was in.
    ETA: Apparently he's assigned to the Pentagon. The times for summer camp are coming up though.

    Pudgie McPudgeface meets height and weight to be in the Navy..I'll have to take back all the fat jokes I said under my breath with the large rear ends and healthy paunches I've seen wrapped in ACU's..

    I was wondering about his H/W. Let me see if I can find the picture I saw, but it looks like the dude just has some really broad shoulders and cheap ill fitted suits.

    This looks like the pic I was looking at.

    He looks to be on the short side

    Yea in uniform he looks like a normal 40 something so I agree it's just bad suits.

    He got stuck hiding for cover in the White House bushes.

    I think she is as much of a fool as Spicer. I saw some of the press conference and she blantly lied by saying the WH as been consistent and it's the media that driving a narrative. No, liar, we have y'all recorded lying about why Comey was fired.

    Is this the one who keeps tripping over her words and struggles to form coherent sentences? Not to mention the uncontrollable grins when responding to reporter questions and sly digs which would make Spicer proud. I think there's not much substance to her IMO.

    Now, Conway, she is dangerous. She is very smart and intellectual to the extent that she can easily respond with detailed responses without resorting to the empty responses of Trump's official mouthpieces. Conway is possibly the top spin doctor and master media manipulator on Trump's staff. A very dangerous one.

    I hate when people praise Sarah Huckabee or Kellyanne Conway for being good at lying and bu**shi**ing. It's like praising Goebbels for effectively brainwashing Germany.

    I can't disputed you, but I only listened today to one briefing, and the lies rolled off her tongue very nicely. :oops:

    Hint, it's not a sincere complement, also known as a backhanded complement. Ideally, the person delivering this compliment does not admire the target. ;)

    Eventually when he does get kicked out of the Trump WH (just a matter of when)….. Spicer will need a good therapist.

    I agree, but I don't have any sympathy for him. Before the Press Secretary job, he was a sleazy Trump talking head spinning the same kind of BS on MSNBC. But before he was not nearly under as much pressure and his confidence was much higher. I sensed a substantial change in his personality when he got the new job, with frequent deer in the headlights looks as can I get this out with a straight face?

    I don't, not when his integrity is examined.
    --- Post Merged, May 11, 2017 ---
    He's back tomorrow just in time, I think. :)
