"That's a fence." Watch Sean Spicer desperately trying to convince White House reporters that some rinky dink fencing is the equivalent of Trump's promised border wall.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

“Just one question about the photos,” Spiering interrupted. “Are those photos of fences or walls.” 

Spicer insisted that his photos were of walls, even though he referred to them as fences earlier. 

“There are various types of walls that can be built under the legislation that was just passed,” he opined. 

“That is a fence,” Spiering said. 

“That is called a levee wall,” Spicer replied. 

“It’s not the wall the president promised,” CNN correspondent Jim Acosta observed. 

“Hold on, Jim, we’re going to take turns,” Spicer said. 

“So you’re basically just telling the president’s supporters to be satisfied with this existing tough-guy fencing thing until he’s ready to build the wall?” Spiering asked. 

“No!” Spicer exclaimed. “What I’m telling anybody is that the president said he’s going to build a wall and he’s doing it. And he’s using the best technology.” 

“That’s what I’m telling you.”

Keep in mind that this Charlie Spiering is from Breaitbart news. So these answers were not even convincing to a news agency that is predetermined to agree with everything that comes out of this White House.

I have to admit that when I watched this exchange this morning it really cracked me up. 

As I watched Spicer almost turning himself inside out in an attempt to convince these reporters not to believe what their eyes were telling them but in what he was saying instead, all I could think is how much fun Melissa McCarthy could have with this on SNL.

In some ways this is a prime example of the difference between what Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail and what he can actually deliver in real life.

    I truly wonder how Spicer sleeps at night. He knows it's all bullshit, but "I'm in the limelight!"

      I'm calling it. One of these days, we'll see Spicy have a full-blown psychotic break on live TV. Just a matter of time, kids. Stay tuned!

      Spicy is definitely headed for either an on air psychotic break or myocardial infarction. You can tell as soon as he walks in that he hates his job. I honestly don't know why he doesn't just quit. Life is too short.

      They hate the fact that a very competent black man was a beloved President for eight years and at the tender age of 56 is going on to more success and continued adulation & respect. Jason Chaffetz is not worthy of shining President Obama's shoes.

    Trumpcare will fuck over special needs children nationwide. BIGLY!

    A Little-Noticed Target in the House Health Bill: Special Education

    "The ability of school systems to provide services mandated under the federal Individuals With Disabilities Education Act would be strained. The law is supposed to ensure that students with disabilities receive high-quality educational services, but it has historically been underfunded.

    Under a little-noticed provision of the health care bill, states would no longer have to consider schools eligible Medicaid providers, meaning they would not be entitled to reimbursements.

    “School-based Medicaid programs serve as a lifeline to children who can’t access critical health care and health services outside of their school,” said the letter sent this week by the Save Medicaid in Schools Coalition, which consists of more than 50 organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union, the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund, and the School Superintendents Association."

    Don'ts either going to be impeached or he'll resign. There are no secrets anymore, and he has way too many treasonous secrets that he won't be able to keep. And then Pence the Fundamentalist will be Potus, which is exactly what Mitch is gunning for. And McCain. And Ryan. And Pence? He's way scary, too. JMO. Popcorn?

      After all the impeachment hearings and criminals impeached we will end up with Eddie the Munster stale tea bag Ryan. We will have him unless he is proven a liar too. Which he is. but hey it will only be till the Americans demand a new election which will be immediately. Put the criminals in their place and demand new rules for elections and those on the ballot will be vetted and answer to America first.

  7. Spicey's problem is that ALL of us can see the
    Emperor isn't wearing any clothes. He can call it a wall, a fence or a pair of bloomers.

    Oh yeah sure. That poor easter bunny. He does appear to be stressed. Repeating fake news and lies is awful hard. Everyday spicy the bunny rabbit comes out and lies, at first I thought he is just a poor confused boy that needs a job. But seriously he is a con artist like the rest of the LIARS club. Ugly bannon and ugly trumpster, the insane nutcases order old spicy the bunny rabbit to the podium to bold face LIE to the world daily. Time for another resignation before the impeachment hearings begin. Its gonna get bloody nasty in short order.

    It aint funny how comey thinks HACKed clinton emails vs RUSSIAN OPERATIVES IN TRUMP camp STUMPS were more important!! Something very odd about comey and his selective crimes to investigate. Russia must have dirt on him and bribed him and trump threatened him. It is both nauseating and disgusting how our taxpayer paid servants and agencies have been infected by liars. Glad there are more good guys and gals than bad liars.

    Pretty soon Spicer will be sent out to say that the wall has been completed, that it's a great wall, it's the best wall, and that it's also an invisible wall. Which, somehow, makes it even better than best.
