In the future, when the story of the Trump administration is finally assembled in a book or more likely scrawled on the wall of a fallout shelter, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will likely be a footnote. Most people can’t name any previous press secretaries, let alone press secretaries that only served for the first six months of an administration. But with Spicer’s time in the spotlight coming to a close and his myriad gaffes still fresh in our minds, let’s remember Sean Spicer for who he really was: A guy who couldn’t talk good despite that being his entire job.
As GQ writer Caity Weaver points out in her tweet, this video was produced by the magazine back in February, meaning Spicer managed to mangle much of the English language within his first few weeks on the job. While we’re sure incoming communications director Anthony Scaramucci will find his own interesting way to screw things up, people all around the “grobe” will no doubt miss Spicer’s “inimpulintation” and “plarm” as head of the “Fress Office.”
