f♣ 9-18-2017∼Last night, fresh from a stint as the unrelenting, bowl-faced and demonstrable liar who dragged the American free press through the mire, Sean Spicer managed a cameo spot at the annual Emmy Awards. The ex-press secretary, with a not unflattering spoof of himself, there reprised his role as Vice Liar-in-Chief to Donald Trump.
A cute trick, even Spicer lapped it up, though many were not amused and found in bad taste the attempt to quickly normalize the disingenuous Trump stooge on the questionable if quite obliging platform of an acting awards program. The odd bit opened with a piquant send up of Sean Spicer’s first lie in office, a bold deceit, the secretary’s flagrant attempt to palm off on the public that conspicuously smaller crowd at Trump’s inauguration as the biggest inauguration turnout ever. Clearly Sean never caught wind of that quaint if pithily relevant little modern-day invention called the camera.
Many watching the Emmies have been scandalized to see a man lately chosen poster boy for national disgrace so casually celebrated, reduced to a mere political hack, his misdeeds diminished on national TV but I for one say, why not? After all, one more henchman shrunk to lies and deceit in the wake of blind ambition, just a cad who in a fit of ignorance once anointed Nazi concentration camps holocaust centers, Sean Spicer, much like George Goebbels, stayed true to the cause and in the image of Adolf Eichmann “vass only follovink orderss.”
