On Tuesday night, after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and shit hit the fan, Press Secretary Sean Spicer availed himself to Fox Business for a short interview. However, when the interview was over, he did something very, very strange. The Washington Post reported:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer wrapped up his brief interview with Fox Business from the White House grounds late Tuesday night and then disappeared into the shadows, huddling with his staff behind a tall hedge. To get back to his office, Spicer would have to pass a swarm of reporters wanting to know why President Trump suddenly decided to fire the FBI director.
According to the Post, Spicy spent several minutes behind the bush and only emerged after Janet Montesi, an executive assistant at the press office, said he’d answer some questions–but only if the press did not film him. After coming out of his hidey hole he demanded:
Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off. We’ll take care of this. … Can you just turn that light off?
Sounds kinky, right?
The press complied with his strange request and Spicer “standing in near darkness between two tall hedges” answered questions for about ten minutes.
That’s right, the Press Secretary LITERALLY hid behind bushes and played hide ‘n seek with the press. Is that how he is going to conduct his press briefings from here on out, because I would actually pay to see him hiding behind a bush and screaming at the media.
