On Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, correspondents for the show went in search of the truth. Unfortunately, they couldn’t find it. That’s because they were following Sean Spicer on a press tour for his new book, The Briefing, all the while calling him out for his questionable relationship with the truth during his short stint as White House Press Secretary.
At a Barnes & Noble, a correspondent raised her hand and asked, “How do you feel about profiting off of lying to the American public?” Spicer responded, “I wouldn’t know, ma’am.”
Then there was an event in Spicer’s hometown of Barrington, Rhode Island, where Spicer was greeted by protesters holding signs calling him a liar. This time, a different correspondent asked Spicer, “Any advice for the young people who want to profit from corroding the truth?” At both events, each correspondent was quickly escorted out.
But Full Frontal had a backup plan: they sent someone wearing a Trump shirt to get her copy of the book signed. When he saw her shirt, Spicer said, “I know where you stand.” She replied, “Is it weird now to, like, watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders do the press conferences? Do you feel a little, ‘Oh, man, I wish I was up there tricking the press?’” And Spicer seemed to not realize where she actually stood because immediately after she said that, he posed for a picture with her.
Later at an event at the Rhode Island Country Club, two correspondents dressed up as someone Spicer truly reveres. In The Briefing, Spicer refers to Donald Trump as “a unicorn riding a unicorn over a rainbow,” so that’s what he got…almost. The two dressed up as just that: a unicorn riding a unicorn over a rainbow. Spicer could see as they approached, but they were turned away by a policeman.
