Sean Spicer was SNL’s Melissa McCarthy today

White House press secretary Sean Spicer was off his rocker today, getting visibly angry and cutting off reporters at his daily White House briefing.

Spicer quite literally became his own parody. He became Melissa McCarthy’s wonderfully evil Saturday Night Live impersonation. See video below.

The said thing for Spicer is that one suspects today was all Trump. It’s no secret that Donald Trump regrets hiring Spicer as White House press secretary, and regularly criticizes Spicer’s look and demeanor. I suspect that on days like this, when Spicer is particularly spicy, he acting on Trump’s orders.

And while acting like a jerk is sure to please Trump, it’s also a good way to alienate the media and much of the public. Sure, Trump’s base likes it, but they’re irrelevant. They’re going to support Trump, regardless. We’re now fighting for the middle, and the middle wants a mature White House, not a belligerent one. And this White House is anything but mature. The adults are clearly not in charge. And in the long-run, that’s going to hurt both Trump and Republicans at the polls. And that may eventually neuter Trump, or get him removed from office entirely — whether by election, impeachment, or the 25th amendment (though I’m particularly partial to imprisonment).

That’s assuming he doesn’t get us all killed first.

Here’s Spicer today:

    Since it is apparent that Mr. Aravosis does not take the time to read the comments section and just hits and runs, attacking his allies, I have deleted my prior comment on here. Total waste of time and space.

    I guess that gibberish passes for deep thought to a Trumper dumb shit.

    As far as removal from office for the so-called pres., I’m hoping for a drug overdose.

    More Fake News. Yawn.

    Apparently you are not understanding the truth about the left: they accuse others of their own motivations and they have no appreciation for self-deprecation. I am hopeful Trump succeeds but I find baldwin and McCarthy to be hilarious. It seems when it comes to reaction to satire – the Left is Trump.

    I would have been hysterical if one of the reporters raised their hand and asked if he was going to throw the podium at one of them.

    You really should be more careful on twitter. I was defending what you said on twitter from someone who was defending Spicer, and had written that Sean Spicer’s ‘job’ was to deflect. A few minutes after that I went to follow you and saw you blocked me? Really?

    Did you not understand my comment was about Spicer…and not you? Did you take the time to see that all my body of tweets indicate we are on the same side. I was so disgusted by what you did that I deleted my tweet defending you.

    I have recently gotten back on twitter with this handle, after being on for quite a long time in another incarnation. After the election I had been turned off to twitter and canceled my former account.

    Incidents like this make me think I was right to stay away. I was a former longtime reader of AmericaBlog. I guess there is no reason to go back.

    Thanks.
