White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is a man known for his clear thinking and ability to provide the public with clearly articulated misinformation, so the American people can be sure what’s going on with the administration on a day-to-day basis.

Don’t take it from me, either. The man himself said so today:
In the above tweet Spicer appears to be agreeing with the link. Clicking on that link, however, takes one to The Onion:

The Onion doesn’t need an introduction here. Instead, let’s just marvel at how beyond parody the Trump Administration is, and that Spicer would agree with a notorious satire site that notes his role is, “to provide the American public with robust and clearly articulated misinformation.”
I mean, that is clearly his role. But just marvel at the fact he’d agree with it.
Spicer first made a name for himself when he introduced the world to “#SpicerFacts,” a hashtag that began trending on Twitter shortly after his train wreck of a press conference. He spent the majority of that conference railing against the media for reporting on the size of the inauguration crowd.
Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s personal mouthpiece, didn’t offer much support when she noted the following Sunday that Spicer just shared with the world “alternative facts” – thereby birthing another meme mocking the Republicans.
Perhaps even better are all the right-wing special snowflakes triggered by The Onion making fun of their messiah’s press secretary, but that’s another article.
In the meantime, let’s just consider the significance of this moment: for the first time since Trump took office, one of his cronies said something that was actually true. This is a watershed moment, right here. Period.
