‘The White House kicked off ‘Made in America’ week by telling the American people that it isn’t appropriate to ask if the Trumps get their goods manufactured in a foreign country.
Get Spicer Some Gum. He Isn’t Making Any Sense
In an attempt to win the game of “Ridiculous: White House Edition” Sean Spicer today told reporters that it is inappropriate to ask about the Trump’s businesses and whether or not they will use American manufacturers.
Sean Spicer made a rare appearance in the White House briefing room. There is no footage of this as the White House still is not allowing a camera to roll in the building. We have, however, verified that he did indeed appear in the White House Briefing Room.
Reporters asked Spicer if the Trump family brands will commit to using American manufacturers. His response rivals Trump himself on confusing words that seem to speak but mean nothing.
All companies can hire here, can expand here, can manufacture here. – Sean Spicer
Trump has long said that there should be levies waged on American businesses that manufacture overseas. It appears he means that for all the businesses that are not Trumps or one of his kids.
The press then pushed Spicer a little and once again tried to get him to make some sense. Everyone wants to know how Trump can ask another company to follow rules he has no intention of following. Spicer responded by explaining that it’s not appropriate for him to answer.
It’s not appropriate for me to stand up here and comment about a business. I believe that is a little out of bounds. – Sean Spicer
Well, well, well, wouldn’t want to anger Mein Fuhrer he might put Spicer back in a time-out.
They Have Stopped Trying to Hide How Hypocritical They Are
They aren’t even trying to pretend anymore to like they aren’t hypocrites. It seems that their base doesn’t care about their leader and his daily ethics violations and downright lies. Spicer, apparently, along with most of the GOP thinks that the rest of us will eventually follow suit.
Trump told the New York Times in December that “Corporate America is going to have to understand that we have to take care of our workers also.”
Peter Navarro is Trump’s Trade Advisor. He wants to dismantle the international supply chains and bring all of that business back to the United States.
It does the American economy no long-term good to only keep the big box factories where we are now assembling ‘American’ products that are composed primarily of foreign components. We need to manufacture those components in a robust domestic supply chain that will spur job and wage growth. – Peter Navarro, Trumps Trade Advisor
Just like when children are lined up at the water’s edge getting ready for that first dunk of the day.
Okay, Trump, you go first.
