 Hollywood just enabled Sean Spicer and that s not funny


When Sean Spicer formed a faux presidential belvedere assimilate the Emmys date Sunday night in Los Angeles, a aggregate blow went up amid the accumulated celebrities. Was it absolutely him?? What would he say???Spicer played his allotment altogether — insisting that this will be the better admirers to attestant the Emmys, aeon — both in actuality and about the world. The army laughed. He went backstage and palled about with the admirable people.Here s the thing: Not alone was the Spicer bit not funny, it shouldn t accept happened at all. Consider, first, the attributes of the joke here. Spicer was accomplishing a caricature of his affirmation — the day afterwards Admiral Donald Trump s commencement — that this was the better admirers to anytime attestant an inauguration, period. That assertion, in the ancient canicule of the Trump presidency, was a lie. Spicer knew it. But, because Trump was black with the advantage of his commencement — and the army comparisons to Barack Obama s aboriginal commencement — he beatific Spicer out to address the columnist about how they were affected news. (They weren t.)That aboriginal lie of the Trump White House — and on such a impaired thing! — set the advance of the administration. Spicer (and, of course, Trump) again addled or absolute aria — and, alike as they were accomplishing it, approved to advance that they were cogent the accuracy and that the media was in the wrong. (They weren t.)Why is that so important? (Aside from the actuality that lying is bad, of course.) Because Spicer s bacon was paid for by taxpayers. Which agency that by foolishly abolition the facts — assuredly at the absolute bidding of Trump — he was lying to the bodies who paid his salary. That s unacceptable. Yes, all White House columnist secretaries do what they can to adumbration the facts in their boss s favor. It s job security. But, none afore Spicer has so befuddled in his lot with the mistruths actuality spouted by a president. To accomplish a antic of that actuality is aloof not funny. Spicer is not some columnist actuality for a bite foods aggregation bent in a bit of antic spin. He is — or was — the President s spokesman, one of the best arresting accessible faces of this administration. That s a abundant college bar of responsibility. The accuracy is that agreeable Spicer to the Emmys — alike if the antic was array of on him — was a big mistake. There s aught catechism that Spicer s Q appraisement soared afterwards that Emmy s appearance. (Read Brian Stelter on the re-branding of Spicer.) He will be able to allegation added in speaking fees now. He will command a college bacon at whatever his abutting job is. The additional Spicer formed that belvedere assimilate the Emmys stage, he won. Bigly.What Spicer s Emmy actualization accepted is that in our culture, acclaim and abomination are indistinguishable. All that affairs is that you are famous. How you got there doesn t matter. It doesn t alike amount whether bodies are adage bad things or acceptable things about you. It aloof affairs that they are talking about you.That Spicer was so approved abaft the scenes at the Emmys added proves the point. Spicer — mocked by Saturday Night Live and instantly apparent walking bottomward any artery in the country — is now a affiliate of the celebrity club. Whether the added celebrities were demography pics with Spicer for acrid affidavit (as I am abiding best of them would claim) or not is immaterial. They accustomed that he was now one of them. That he belonged there.The absolute affair was a massive validation for Spicer. A validation that advisedly ambiguous on the taxpayer s dime is a-OK! He was in on the joke! He knew he was lying the accomplished time! That makes it OK (or something)!HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.Except not.
