In today’s political climate, we are bearing witness to statements like this:
“You know, you had a — someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to the… to the… to using chemical weapons.”
And this wonderful moment regarding President Donald Trump’s travel ban:
“It can’t be a ban if you’re letting a million people in. He has been very clear that it is extreme vetting.”
People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!

And this diamond in the rough spouted while a heated exchange during the questioning of the Trump administration’s Russia connections occurred:
“If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection.”
And this beautiful, shining moment when someone felt the need to defend Trump’s golfing habits:
“You saw him utilize this as an opportunity with [Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe] to help foster a deeper relationship in Southeast Asia, in Asia rather, and have a growing relationship that’s going to help U.S. interests. “On a couple of occasions, he’s actually conducted meetings there, he’s had phone calls. Just because he heads there doesn’t mean that’s what’s happening.”
There was this moment that tried to downplay actual pictures:
“This was the largest audience to ever witness the inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.”

Oh, oh, oh! How about this hunger-inducing moment:

Or, this controversial moment:
“There are doctors who help people who have done bad things; there are lawyers who defend bad people. I don’t think it’s unique to my profession.”
Oh! There’s also this incredible gaffe:
“The President had an incredibly productive set of meetings and discussions with Prime Minister Joe Trudeau of Canada.”
And then, there’s this moment where it is apparent that all other idiotic things to say have been exhausted:
“You guys are so negative!”
Let’s face it: Sean Spicer doesn’t need Twitter, SNL, or even internet memes to be funny and controversial in his own right. But, from this babbling brook of syllabic nonsense comes something I can finally relate to in the midst of this mind-boggling political climate.

I feel ya, guys.
