    During the daily press briefings Sean Spicer nearly always says at least once, often multiple times, "The president's tweets speak for themselves"

    What in the hell does that BS mean?

    When he says "The president's tweets speak for themselves", I laugh hoping it is a Spicer coded statement "I have no fucking idea what he means, so stop asking me!"

    It means they both have no idea.

    Yes it is the classic non-answer when Spicer doesn't want to explain something he doesn't necessarily agree with. He's job is to sell the President and he starts his Daily Briefing with a monologue of misinformation and lies all carefully worded to make Trump sound successful and good while at the same time knocking Democrats, Obama and Clinton. It's almost comical. The press sits there probably thinking, "oh good grief, please finish up so we can get to asking questions."

    It is such a contrast from the Obama years. It suggests a certain insecurity in Trump and his administration that is really a carry-over from the campaign and his stump speeches.

    Sorry, I stopped looking at this "circus" ; it does not solve anything anyway the game is on how can I deceive stupid reporters. Reality is out of the window; it has become an huge joke as seen around the world.
