Spicer Rips Media in First Press Conference


Spicer start­ed things off by blast­ing the recent reports about how Presi­dent Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. from the Oval Office. The story has been disproven, and Spicer blast­ed those who circu­lat­ed the reports as “reckless and irrespon­si­ble.”

Not a moment after­wards, Spicer turned his ire towards reporters who noted that Trump didn’t have a partic­u­lar­ly large crowd for his inaugu­ra­tion compared to past presi­dents. Spicer said that these media figures were working to “minimize the enormous support” that got Trump elect­ed, and that it was “shame­ful and wrong” to put out “inaccu­rate” numbers and pictures about the crowds.

“This was the largest audience to witness an inaugu­ra­tion. Period!” Spicer said.

Spicer also used his opening remarks to talk about Trump’s speech today with the CIA, where Trump took his own shots at the media. Spicer did not take any questions, and he walked away from reporters after finish­ing his tangent.
