Yes, we should be concerned about the administration’s push to get the travel ban before the Supreme Court, the Obamacare repeal bill the Senate is clandestinely constructing, incipient fascism, attempts to privatize the public organs of government… we haven’t forgotten any of it.
But we’re concerned for our pal Spicey. He’s been having a rough go of things. Do you think a press secretary who loves what he’s doing hides in the bushes or forbids cameras from his briefings? Dude wants out of the job like yesterday. That’s why he’s actively looking for his own replacement.
Asked why the briefings are now routinely held off-camera, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in a text message “Sean got fatter,” and did not respond to a follow-up.
In case you’ve forgotten, this is alcohol-sodden visage of Steve Bannon.
He was just joshing, some will say. But we all know Steve is incapable of being nice to a perceived social inferior, even if they’re white. Nothing gets him off more than bullying people who can’t defend themselves. Sad middlemen like Sean Spicer included.
There’s a saying you’ve never heard before because I just made it up: Steve Bannons in glass houses shouldn’t throw whiskey bottles.
