‘His word-salad today involves ACTUAL salad’: The internet loses it over Spicer’s Russia outburst
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s objection to reporters questioning investigations into President Donald Trump’s Russia ties reached a new level on Tuesday when Spicer imploded during his daily briefing.
American Urban Radio Correspondent April Ryan asked how the administration could possibly move past the scandal, noting, “Two and a half months in, you’ve got this [Sally Yates] story today, you’ve got other things going on. You’ve got Russia, you’ve got wiretaps … You’ve got investigations on Capitol Hill.”
Spicer replied, “I’ve said it from the day that I got here until whenever that there is no connection. You’ve got Russia! If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection.”
The internet didn’t go easy on Spicy’s salad dressing remark.

@edhornick If your son-in-law sneaks that salad dressing into your building along with the Russian Ambassador – then yes, it’s a connection.

Might be an exaggeration, but I *would* consider it an indictment on his judgement. Russian salad dressing sucks. Please don’t hack me. https://t.co/3mE6R3KKYC

lost in the mix, while it’s tasty, russian dressing is more of a condiment than a salad dressing

I’m sorry but who eats Russian salad dressing? That’s just ridiculous. This must be some sort of coded message. https://t.co/s3bBjJWAT6

@naretevduorp All this Russian nonsense is just the Trump organization trying to expand into the international salad dressing business.
