Sean Spicer Claims He Never ‘Knowingly’ Lied, Internet Lights His Pants on Fire
Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer Looks Like He’s Lying Trying To Claim He Never Lied
Whether we like it or not, Sean Spicer continues making his rounds in the media after his departure from the Donald Trump administration. And, as with his tenure in the White House, controversies continue to follow.
During an interview with ABC News that aired this morning, Spicer made a statement not likely to sit well with anyone who paid attention to his time as Press Secretary. When asked if he had “ever lied to the American people”, Spicer responded:
I don’t think so…I haven’t cheated on my taxes…(Stammers)…I have not knowingly done anything to do that. No.

Not surprisingly, a slew of folks on Twitter seemed to disagree.
…..like he doesn't realize those press briefings were recorded

Why did he use the term Holocaust Centers in place of concentration camps?

This wasn’t the only rough item on the plate of Sean Spicer this morning. Axios posted a text exchange between him and a reporter showing Spicer threatening legal action just for contacting him.
When we texted Spicer for comment on his note-taking practices, he replied: “Mike, please stop texting/emailing me unsolicited anymore.”
When I replied with a “?” (I have known Spicer and his wife for more than a dozen years), he answered: “Not sure what that means. From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities.”
This comes on the heels of reports that five networks have shied away from hiring Spicer as a pundit, for now. It seems the credibility he sowed as Press Secretary has put him in a tough spot when it comes to the general public trusting him anymore.
So, even though Sean Spicer is no longer a part of the train wreck Donald Trump administration, he apparently isn’t done being dishonest with the American people. And we probably shouldn’t hold our breathe expecting that to change any time soon.
