ALTERNATIVE FACTS: "This is Not a TV Program" Spicer States During Live Feed of Programmed TV Broadcast
February 23, 2017
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday chided a reporter for trying to ask a question without being called on first by saying: "We're going to raise our hands like big boys and girls."
Spicer called on a reporter named Shannon to ask a question when Glenn Thrush, a reporter with the New York Times, also tried to jump in to ask a question of his own.
You may be familiar with Glenn as this is the same reporter who "Saturday Night Live" has portrayed in its skits being berated by a fictional Spicer (Melissa McCarthy)
Additional alternative facts include Spicer stating Glenn's job is not to "just yell out questions", when in fact this may be his main job function. Calls to the Failing New York Times requesting Glenn's official job description were not returned.
Question for our readers: Is there any doubt that Glenn begins eating his dinner before the entire table is served?
