Melissa McCarthy shames White House press secretary Sean Spicer in an epic skit on Saturday Night Live that ended with him locked in embrace and kissing Donald Trump. Ouch.
The skit laid bare the fact that a majority of Americans have lost all respect for Donald Trump and the White House staff, particularly the communication staff. They lie on cue. Trump is plunging America into a constitutional crisis day by day, which will most certainly lead to impeachment, particularly if the Democrats win a majority in the House in the 2018 midterm elections.
At the heart of the skit is the fact that the White House communications team often relayed conflicting and false messages about FBI Director James Comey’s firing. But that message came from Trump, who later threw them all under a bus by undercutting their statements. He is now threatening to replace daily press briefings with written statements or doing them himself.
The problem is that the lies are coming from Trump himself. He’s lying to his staff and they are in turn lying to the American people.
