President Donald Trump’s White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, is already making a name for himself in the administration: by telling bald-faced lies to the American people. Spicer claimed, regarding President Trump’s spat with the media (and reality) over the size of his inauguration crowd, that “this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.” Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to Trump, later defended Spicer’s comments, saying that he was pulling his information from “alternative facts.”
People of the
internet have had a field day with Spicer’s ridiculousness, with some people plotting to send him Dippin’ Dots, the company he has waged war with on Twitter for the past five years. Since the press conference, Spicer has spawned several hashtags including #SeanSpicerSays, #SeanSpicerFacts, and #SpicerFacts — and legions of memes.
Here are some of the best:
