Sean Spicer: 'I Did Not Work for a Cartoon President'

By    |   Friday, 01 June 2018 12:00 PM

Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer Friday took offense to former President Barack Obama aide Ben Rhodes' claims that his boss branded President Donald Trump as a "cartoon," saying its a further example of Democrats trying to find someone to blame for Hillary Clinton's loss.

"I did not work for a cartoon president," Spicer told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "I think it's ironic Hillary Clinton was the master of trying to blame everybody for the election loss and now they are getting in on the act of who else to blame."

The bottom line, he continued, was that the Trump campaign had a "great data operation, a great ground game, and a strong messenger in President Trump."

In his new book, "The World as It Is,"  Rhodes, a longtime adviser to Obama, wrote that the former president's team was blindsided by Trump's victor.

Further, the outgoing president struggled with the outcome for weeks, Rhodes writes, noting that Obama pointed out that Trump had run against Clinton with the same message the Obama campaign had used: "she's part of a corrupt establishment that can't be used to bring change."

"I think they can makes a many excuses that they want," Spicer said, "but the bottom line is that President Trump had a message that all of these folks in Washington had lost sight of is the American people wanted somebody to champion their efforts, their concerns and Donald Trump was that messenger."

Spicer also took offense to claims in a Virginia Democrat's ad that the "greatest threat" to the United States' democracy since the 9/11 attacks.

"It's reprehensible, the idea that you are comparing the president of the United States to a terrorist that inflicted death to our country, is reprehensible," said Spicer. "I think what the biggest problem is in the 10th congressional district in Virginia. Have you 12 people trying to defeat Barbara Comstock.

"She is a tough fighter, worked hard for the commonwealth of Virginia and the people there. They are trying to figure out how to win this primary by going so far to the left.
