Sean Spicer's 10 Best (Worst) Quotes

Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary, had a rather rough run in his speaking position. To be fair, he had to speak on behalf of one of the most controversial, back-and-forth presidents - but he's very much to blame for a majority of the terribly stupid things he's said. Here are some of his best (worst) quotes as Press Secretary.

1. On the low inauguration attendance: "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period."

It was not. Not even close.

2. On Trump's consistent connections to Russia: "If the President put Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that's a Russia connection."

Only if he lied about it before admitting to it.

3. When he falsely stated Hitler didn't use chemical weapons: "You had someone who was as despicable as Hitler, who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons."

Hitler gassed millions of people.

4. On "covfefe": "The President and a small group of people know exactly what he meant."

Well, congratulations to them.

5. On the Muslim ban: "He’s doing exactly what the told the American people he would do."

A politician who follows through on his promises! Oh wait - promises to do awful, discriminatory things.

6. On the State Department memo against the travel ban: "These career bureaucrats have a problem with it? I think they should either get with the program or go."

Yeah, they should jump on board with the career television star-turned politician who proposed something horrible.

7. On why the 7 countries were chosen for the travel ban: "If you have other countries, please let us know."

Saudi Arabia? Either way, we could not group entire countries of people into terror groups.

8. On falsehoods he relayed, later called "alternative facts" by Kellyanne Conway: "Yes, I believe we have to be honest with the American people... I think sometimes we can disagree with the facts... our intention is never to lie to you."

Being honest with the American people should be a FACT - not something you have to believe. Don't disagree on facts; facts are facts. Good intentions do not matter if you still lie.

9. Opening a press conference with a self-deprecating joke: "By the way, just as I get started, I know that [Obama Press Secretary] Josh Earnest was voted the most popular press secretary by the press corps so after reading, checking my twitter feed, I shot Josh an email letting him know that he can rest easy, his title is secure for at least the next few days."

I'll give him this one. Not many reporters laughed, but I did.

10. On Trump's diplomatic style: "The President's diplomacy style is paying dividends, the relationships and the foundation that the President is building are going to pay huge dividends for this country... This President's style is one to develop a personal bond with individuals."

Feed Trump's ego and you'll get on his good side!

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.


You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
