Sean Spicer on GMA: I never lied to the American people

22 September 2017

Spicer resigned from his position as White House Press Secretary in July after President Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci to be the next White House communications director (Scaramucci only held the position for ten days).

Instead, he's embarked on a sort of anti-rehab tour, in which he doubles down on all the qualities that made him a national punchline.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is defending himself against accusations that he lied to the American public. Spicer was recently contacted by Mike Allen at Axios to discuss his note-taking practices and Spicer texted him back saying "Mike please stop texting/emailing me unsolicited anymore". He was asked a second time. "You wanna find something - I have not knowingly done anything to do that, no".

Since Spicer exited the White House, his representatives have been holding individual conversations about the possibility of President Donald Trump's former flack joining one of the major TV networks, which include CBS News, CNN, Fox News, ABC News and NBC News.

The portion of Spicer's notes visible in the picture, in a close-up, refer to top administration officials: "RP" for then-chief of staff Reince Preibus and "Rex" for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. He admitted that when he hyperbolically described Trump's inauguration as drawing in the biggest crowds "period", he should have had "more facts" and been "more articulate". "He thought I did a great job and so it was very reassuring", Spicer told Faris.

While Spicer said he's "having fun", he also thinks he there are things to "correct".

"Look, I made mistakes. there's no question". According to Axios, Spicer kept notebooks with details of every meeting he took during his time working for the Trump campaign and, later, in the White House.

Trump said on Twitter he was "saddened" to see the "worst ever" Emmys ratings - a claim that appears to be incorrect.
