I’m really not a big fan of ambushing anyone when they’re just trying to go about their day.
To that point, Sean Spicer’s life is hard enough. He doesn’t need to catch grief outside of the White House press office, as well.
Unfortunately, a very special idiot thought following him around an Apple store as he tried to shop on Saturday was the really edgy, cool thing to do.
Of course, she recorded the encounter and posted it to social media, because that’s what you do, these days. You follow some public figure around being obnoxious, then rush it to the internet and wait for your ego-fix through all the clicks and kudos you’re sure to get.
From the Washington Examiner:
“How does it feel to work for a fascist? Have you helped with the Russia stuff? Are you a criminal as well? Have you committed treason too, just like the president?” a woman filming Spicer asks.
Nope. Nothing there to make anyone want to empty half a can of pepper spray in her face.
Spicer tried to maintain his composure. This wasn’t one of his White House pressers, after all.
“Such a great country that allows you to be here,” Spicer responded.
Interestingly, this little troll also tweeted out on February 18 that she was part of the clown patrol that blocked Betsy DeVos from entering Jefferson Academy, in Washington.
I have to hand it to Spicer. That particular encounter could have gone so much worse.
And she would have deserved it.
