Over the weekend, probably as he was Googling his own name and looking for something, anything complimentary about him, Sean Spicer found a video that he thought “Nailed it!” It’s just a shame that that video came from The Onion, the world leader in joke news.
Spicer found a tweet by The Onion, who were promoting their video "5 Things to Know About Sean Spicer" touting Spicer’s ability to communicate the Trump administration’s “misinformation.” He quickly retweeted and added the comment “You nailed it. Period!”
One can only imagine him lying in his lazy boy recliner, mouth open, and Doritos dust covering his chest as came across the tweet that claimed he was lying to the American People. He might’ve brushed that Doritos dust off his chest before RT’ing in agreement. Or maybe he didn’t change positions.
However, one thing’s for sure, if you were wondering about Trump administration’s ability to parse out real news from “fake news,” you have your answer: The White House press secretary aka one of the most important media guys in America thought The Onion was real.
