Yesterday, Sean Spicer gave a press briefing with a piece of some leafy green stuck in his teeth. Today, he jumped from having salad in his teeth to flat out discussing salad at the podium. Frustrated by a question about President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia (which, remember, the FBI is currently investigating), Spicer dropped a comment about Trump eating Russian salad dressing.
“If the president put Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight somehow that’s a Russia connection,” Spicer told American Urban Radio Networks’ Washington bureau chief April Ryan. (He followed up by charmingly telling Ryan to stop shaking her head at him. Can’t imagine what about the salad dressing nonanswer was unsatisfactory to her.) Naturally, because Sean Spicer can’t say or do anything — eat gum, tweet his feelings about Dippin’ Dots ice cream, misconstrue satire about himself — without launching a zillion tweets, the Russian dressing jokes are coming in hot and fast on Twitter.
On the upside, at least nobody is talking about “hand salad” anymore.
