Press Secretary Sean Spicer
When President Trump chose Sean Spicer to be his Press Secretary, I am sure Spicer understood that this would be a tough gig. Being the Press Secretary is always a tough job, being the Press Secretary in a Republican administration is always going to be twice as hard. Being the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump, seems to be damn near impossible.
Sean Spicer is also a Naval Commander with 17 years in the Navy Reserves. He holds a master’s degree in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College. He worked as a spokesman for the office of the U.S. Trade Representative during the George W. Bush administration.
Spicer was also the communications director for the RNC from 2011 to 2017.
The point is, Sean Spicer has been serving his country in a variety of positions for many years. There has been no indication that he is anything but a dedicated professional, and he seems to be a pretty decent guy to boot.
Since he has become the Press Secretary his has been under fire constantly. Mocked on Saturday Night Live, attacked in the media, called a liar. The Daily briefing is definitely not friendly territory for Sean Spicer.
To me it appeared that Spicer was being treated like a young rookie baseball player in his first plate appearances, but facing multiple pitchers throwing fastball after fastball high and tight, brushing the rookie back. Trying to intimidate him.
But Sean Spicer is no rookie. We covered he is a navy man with years of experience. He was not intimidated, and almost looked ready to charge the mound on a few occasions.
That was not the worst of it. Dodging all these pitches coming at his head and the media as a whole was umping the game. All these pitches were being called strikes and if Spicer complained about it, he risked being ejected.
No matter where the pitch was, they were all strikes in the eyes of the corrupt media.
So, Spicer had to swing at some of those pitches at his head. What else could he do? Sometimes, he would look silly, but he was not going to go down without a fight.
Sean Spicer is a lot like his boss President Trump. He is not the type of person to sit back and just take abuse. He does his best. He shows up for work every day, and he faces all that BS. Like Donald Trump, Sean spicer has earned my respect. His family should be proud. This man takes all the abuse. We all know, he has to play by different rules then all his predecessors. It is not fair, but life rarely is. Sometimes, you just need to step back into the batters box and give it your best. Show the pitcher you will not be intimidated and do your job.
I tip my hat to Sean Spicer, unsung hero.
