20 minutes is way more time than I want to spend thinking about Sean Spicer.


#3

I cant bear to watch any of it.

Did Jimmy ruffle Spicer’s hair, or otherwise help him seem normal?


#4

On the one hand, I recognize that dehumanizing one’s ideological foes is a dark and twisted path to walk down for anyone. Get angry at the ideas, by the person, I try to remember.

But on the other hand, I don’t think we are under any ethical obligation to rehumanize anyone, either.


#5

I really enjoy Kimmel’s show but, I refuse to watch the Spicer episode or the clip here. Spicer can piss off.


#6

I thought Spicer did a pretty good job, better than I expected. He was in a shitty situation with Trump. He took the ribbing and joking from Kimmel like a man. In fact, made Kimmel look like a doofus a couple times.

So Kimmel is continuing his role as a professional sycophant to evil. Yay.


#9

Spicer is yet another republican coprophiliac who happily wallows in trump. He was happy as pigs in shit with his “situation”.


#10

Did he look worth $30K to dissemble embarrassingly?

“Sean Spicer, Citing Selfie Requests, Reportedly Thinks He’s Worth More Than Customary $30K Speaking Fee”

#12

What, you don’t know that he was kidnapped and forced to work for Trump?

What’s heroic about Spice Boy is that he somehow managed to escape!


#13

Indeed! Spicer joined up with Trump to raise his profile and get his vile agenda into the public sphere more fully. He was a will participant and there is nothing positive about his politics.

[ETA] wait… my brain is confusing Spicer and Bannon… what’s wrong with me. But I think this still stands.


#14

I was going to post the exact same thing


#15

No thanks. I’ve had plenty of Spicy already this year. It’s mashed potato sandwiches from here on out.


#16

Fuck the normalization of these creeps.


#17

Every comment I’ve see you make recently seems to be an attempt at marginalization or deflection.

Interesting.


#18

another chance to post my new favorite gif! :grinning:


#19

Is Kimmel completely incapable of learning from his mistakes?

Or is he just doing his level best to corner the market on brown-nosing the absolute scum of the earth?

“Well, sociopathic liars are people, too.”

YouTube usually has a good auto-transcript of videos, but not this one. Too soon?
