Somehow, someway, Sean Spicer still has a job. The White House Press Secretary went ahead and said that the Obama administration asked British Intelligence to spy on Donald Trump, and Great Britain was not having it.
See, Great Britain is traditionally the nation’s biggest ally, so you probably don’t want to sully their reputation.
Nevertheless, Spicer said, “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,” during a press conference yesterday (March 16). “He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI and he didn’t use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ.”
Spicer apparently didn’t get the memo about the Brits being our homies, but he knows now.
According to the Telegraph, Spicer personally apologized. In fact, the United States made a formal apology, withGeneral McMaster, the US National Security Adviser, apologizing directly, according to sources.
Using FOX News as a primary source instead of the various intelligence agencies at your service, who say there was no wiretapping, is a fail. Watch Spicer play himself below.
How about an apology to Barack Obama?
