‘He looks like a condemned man’: MSNBC guest claims Spicer has ‘mentally left’ his job already

Published

With the President Donald Trump’s White House under unrelenting siege related to the investigations into Russian collusion and cover-ups, the strain on the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has taken is toll, an MSNBC commentator pointed out.

“I have covered a lot of pressers in my life, and i don’t think i’ve ever seen one in which the press secretary looked either anesthetized or like a condemned man, the way Sean Spicer did today,” MSNBC guest Howard Fineman remarked.

“Whenever he got a really tough question, his eyes went straight to the paper where he read something that somebody had written for him,” Fineman noticed.

The MSNBC guest almost likened Spicer to a schoolchild anxious for summer vacation.

“It’s as if he threw up his hands and said, ‘you know what, I’m out of here'” Fineman concluded. “And mentally, I think he was.”

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
