Sean Spicer’s Daily Press Briefing Just Went Terribly Wrong – Poor Spicey (VIDEO)

This administration is absolutely notorious for sidestepping questions and altering the things President Donald Trump says and does to have a leg to stand on, to defend him.

Another prime example of this arose Monday, when Trump’s White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer provided his weekly update with reporters. Spicer was inundated again, as should’ve been expected, with questions relating to Donald Trump’s off-the-wall claims that he was “wiretapped” by President Obama.

For those who haven’t seen, Donald Trump made these controversial comments on Twitter on March 4th. With absolutely no evidence to corroborate his assertions, he wrote:

‘Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!’

‘Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!’

‘How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!’

Now, Donald Trump’s tweets are absolutely asinine on a good day. That said, this takes it to a “new low” indeed, given the severity of the implications should these accusations prove to be true.

Following this, Trump’s team has been scrambling to try to come up with some way to spin this so as to make Trump seem justified with his statement, despite a lack of evidence.

Spicer seems to think he managed to do just that at Monday’s press briefing, but he failed miserably. He was so seemingly unconvinced by what he was about to say, he could not even meet the gaze of reporters or cameras.

His attempted justification, however, was nothing short of hilarious:

‘I think there’s no question that the Obama administration, that there were actions about surveillance and other activities that occurred in the 2016 election. The president used the word wiretaps in quotes to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities.’

He then went on to try to shift blame to the press by saying that many news outlets reported that there was surveillance on the then-candidate for president, Donald Trump back in November — and therefore they should have the evidence they want Trump to release.

Then just when you think he can’t say anything more ridiculous, he tries to tell Americans that President Donald Trump wasn’t referring to President Barack Obama when he said he’s a “bad (or sick) guy,” and instead meant the entire Obama administration. Last I checked, if he were truly referring to the administration, he would’ve said “guys” or even better, “people.”

These remarks from the White House through Sean Spicer come following a week of silence on the issue. At last week’s press briefing, Trump’s puppet pressman asserted that Trump’s tweets and meaning “speak for themselves” and neglected to elaborate or provide any further details.

He must have known he would not get away with the ‘no comment’ approach this round, not just because reporters and the American people are sick and tired of being given the runaround — but also because the briefing took place the same day of the evidence deadline for the accusation.

The United States Justice Department was given today as a deadline to provide any and all evidence surrounding any “wire tapping” or surveillance on Trump during the campaign, by the House Intelligence Committee.

Even career Republicans are turning their backs on President Trump on this one. Senator John McCain spoke to CNN and articulated that he believes Trump owes Americans something:

‘The President has one of two choices: either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve. I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the President of the United States could clear this up in a minute.’

Well, President Trump has certainly taken more than “a minute” to “clear this up,” and in light of Spicer’s new claims, Americans probably shouldn’t hold their collective breath for an answer.
