Former Trump White House spokesman Sean Spicer has a new speaking gig, for which he’s being promoted as offering the same “candor and wit” as he did in the White House briefing room.
“Spicer lands post-WH gig. His speaking agent says he’ll offer the same ‘candor’ + ‘wit’ he did in the briefing room,” New York Magazine and Huffington Post contributor Yashar Ali observed over a link announcing Spicer’s new job.

“’Audiences around the world will benefit from the same candor, wit and insight that Spicer brought to the White House briefing room,’ Worldwide Speakers Group writes about Spicer in its pitch to potential customers, an early copy of which was reviewed by POLITICO.”

"Sean Spicer" – He is going to speak in complete sentences? He would be better at reading pop-up books to kids. Let the fantasy continue.

All that Trump touches turns maybe to gold first if he’s lucky, but then this happens. And it’s not pretty.
Come buy your candor among the bushes, people! It’s almost as good as Saturday Night Live’s free version.
