The anticipation is mounting as former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer preps for a full hour on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered. Spicer is scheduled to appear on her show Thursday.
Here’s how they’re describing it:
“Featuring a candid conversation between Cupp and Spicer on his life personally and professionally over the past year.”
Brace yourselves for President Trump to bash his former spokesman. Spicer emerged in Michael Wolff‘s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. MSNBC’s Katy Tur told viewers Wednesday that she couldn’t even repeat what Spicer had said about him.
Hint: It involves the word fuck and Trump’s ability to tell the truth.
Spicer said the appearance will give him an opportunity for a healthy discussion.
“SE and I have been friends for awhile and this is just a great opportunity to have an extended discussion about the current political landscape as well as give me a chance to ask some of the questions,” Spicer told The Mirror.
The former presidential aide left the White House when Anthony Scaramucci was hired to be the White House Communications Director. Scaramucci lasted a week. Spicer always felt he wasn’t qualified for the job.
As the famous incident goes, Spicer outrageously berated the press in his first meeting with reporters during Trump’s presidency.
He called them out for misrepresenting Trump’s Inauguration crowd size, amid other “false narratives.” He said one reporter falsely tweeted that the Martin Luther King, Jr. bust had purposefully been removed from the Oval Office.
Spicer also discussed grass in great detail, as in blades not weed.
“Secondly, photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way, in one particular tweet, to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the National Mall,” he said. “This was the first time in our nation’s history that floor coverings have been used to protect the grass on the Mall. That had the effect of highlighting any areas where people were not standing, while in years past the grass eliminated this visual. This was also the first time that fencing and magnetometerswent as far back on the Mall, preventing hundreds of thousands of people from being able to access the Mall as quickly as they had in inaugurations past.”
After he left the White House, Spicer informed the New York Times that he “absolutely” regretted what he told reporters about crowd size and that it was the largest it had ever been — “period.”
