You gotta feel bad for Sean Spicer. Ever since he was played by a pitch-perfect Melissa McCarthy on SNL, and word got out that Trump was “rattled” because he “doesn’t like his people to look weak,” he’s had something of an image problem. Well, his giant baggy suits didn’t help, or his weird thing with Dippin’ Dots, or all the stories about how he actually swallows thousands of pieces of gum per day (roughly). As the AV Club put it, he’s essentially the “holy fool of the Russian tragedy novel that is our current existence.” It’s enough to evoke pity from even the coldest heart—how can you not feel the stirrings of sympathy for the man bleating out Trump’s lies behind a dais, if that man lacks pride and self-worth?
Luckily, he has been redeemed by the Internet. Ladies and gentleman, this is the Tweet that gives Spicey his groove back:
This photo has been around for a while, but it's making the rounds today because the AV Club rocked the political world with the story of how Spicer used to be the White House Easter bunny.
There's even a Q&A about it, apparently:
Bottom line: You have seen the Spice without his swagger for the last time.
