The life cycle of a Trump press secretary

Our new President is picking a fight that he can’t win, and I couldn’t be happier. On Saturday his poor press secretary, Sean Spicer, was forced to defend the slights his insecure, thin-skinned boss felt he was receiving from the press. The funniest of these were the estimates of the crowds that attended the inauguration. Here is the thing, this President did not win the popular vote. He is beginning his term with the lowest approval rating of any incoming President in modern history. Honestly is it really that big of a surprise that the crowds were thin. Sean Spicer can spin it all it wants, pictures simply don’t lie. No one showed up. Better still, President Obama’s crowd numbers kicked his ass, not once but twice.

But here is the bigger question, why does he give a shit? Why is this such a big deal to him? Is his ego really that fragile-yes. Is he really that insecure-oh hell yes. Does he really need a girl, Kellyanne Conway, to go on CBS, ABC, NBC and CNN and fight his playground battles for him-sadly yes, get used to it. Who better to speak for an egotistical maniac than a mean girl who talks in run on sentences and endless circles.

“Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!” – Donald Trump Tweet 1-22-17

I predict that President Trump will change press secretaries as often as he and Kellyanne Conway color their hair. It will be a thankless job, particularly when your boss refers to your audience, the people you are accountable to, as the “dishonest media”. Trump will learn, very quickly, that pissing off CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post just doesn’t make good business sense and eventually Meet the Press and other news shows will tire of the Kellyanne Conway circus when they realize their audience changes the channel during her sound bites. It was funny at first, now it is just sad.

  2. Watching that press conference as it happened, I couldn’t believe Spicer’s venomous and condescending attitude. The press would probably be best served to assume everything this administration says is an exaggeration at best, and lies at worst.

  3. Watched Spicer and Kellyanne. Maybe they are formulating a new sitcom for POTUS 45’s new network. The man is a raving lunatic. He’s blaming the media for making him “look bad”. LOL
