When he became president Donald Trump unleashed some incredibly memorable press secretaries. Stephanie Grisham never held one press conference. Sarah Huckabee Sanders used a doctored video in an attempt to shame CNN’s Jim Acosta. And Kayleigh McEnany promised to never lie to the press, only to break that promise many times over her tenure.
But Sean Spicer took the cake. One might have thought that no one would face greater embarrassment then he experienced when he argued that Donald Trump had a bigger inauguration crowd than Donald Trump (though Spicer’s Dancing With the Stars experience came pretty close).
Considering her predecessors, Jen Psaki has been a significant breath of fresh air. This week, the New York Times published a glowing story about Psaki including praise from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. This led to plenty of complaining from Spicer.
The former Trump staffer said in the same article, “I walked into the lion’s den every day — she walks into a bunch of kittens.”
BREAKING: Sean Spicer throws a jealous fit because America loves Jen Psaki, and bitterly whines that Jen “questioned” his “job qualifications” when she said Biden fired him & other Trumpers from board seats because they sympathized with insurrectionists. RT IF YOU STAND WITH JEN!

The current Newsmax host also responded to a quote from Psaki where she remarked, “I will let others evaluate whether they think Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer and others were qualified.”
Spicer countered, “Jen chose to stand and question my qualifications and services to this country. Once she did that, the gloves were off.”
