Spicer said that whatever President Trump wanted him to say he had to say it.
Former White House Spicer press secretary on the JKL show stated: “That’s what you sign up to do,”
When Spicer revisited his unforgettable briefing-room debut he essentially admitted that he would LIE for Trump no matter what.
When Kimmel was trying to figure out Spicer’s point of view he said this:
“Even if you know the crowd wasn’t bigger, you have to go — as press secretary, you have to say that it was,”
Then Spicer replied with this:
“Look, your job as press secretary is to represent the president’s voice, and to make sure that you are articulating what he believes, [what] his vision is on policy, on issues and on other areas that he wants to articulate. Whether or not you agree or not isn’t your job.”
The phrase that caught our eyes is “other areas.” A great spokesman will agree on policy 100% of the time and would represent the bosses view.
On policy matters, I’m going to have to say that Spicer is correct.
However, do “other areas” incorporate matters of fact? It’s not a matter of opinion if Trump has the largest crowd. It’s equitably either false or true, but will have to say that is FALSE!
In Spencer’s first address to the reporters, he made it clear that he didn’t want to talk about the magnitude of the crowd.
Here’s what he said:
“There was a lot of us that wanted to be focused on his agenda, what he spoke about in his inaugural address. So, you know, look, but he’s president. He made a decision.”
Then he laughed when the was asked precisely if the magnitude of the crowd was an issue jokingly saying; “If it was up to me, I would have probably worn a different suit”.
However, Spicer made a claim that President Trump outdared all of the presidents before him.
Then he stated this:
“Whether or not you voted for him or not, the president won the election; he faced a lot of head winds,” Spicer continued.
“And I think there was a faction of people out there that didn’t want to give him the credit that he rightly deserved, and I think he takes a lot of that sometimes personally.”
“Some of us who worked very hard to get him elected felt as though a lot of folks in the media, in particular, constantly sought to undermine the validity of that election. And so you have to understand it sometimes from that perspective.”
As a way of battling a press crops that were treating the president very unfairly Spencer maximized President’s presence.
