"I mean, it is pathetic that people are picking on a statement," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said to a reporter at the White House briefing on Monday.

Sean Spicer is a liar. Not only that, but he is incredibly bad at his job as White House press secretary, which entails speaking on behalf of the administration to the public in a clear, effective, and concise manner.

Spicer does not know how to properly communicate. This is evident in the video below, wherein he responds to negative feedback by ranting nonsensically for literally two minutes, like an elementary kid who doesn't yet know how to grapple with his hurt feelings.

Then again, President Donald Trump has been likened to a petulant child on countless occasions, so maybe it all runs in the family White House. 

The tangent began when a reporter alluded to criticism of the White House's statement remembering International Holocaust Memorial Day, since the statement didn't actually mention Jewish people, Talking Points Memo reports

Here's a clip of Spicer's answer. (Warning: This will not enrich you in any way.)  

"The statement was written with the help of an individual who's both Jewish and the descendants of Holocaust survivors," Spicer said. "To suggest that remembering the Holocaust and acknowledging that all of the people — Jewish, gypsies, priests, disabled, gays, and lesbians — I mean, it is pathetic that people are picking on a statement."

Yes, he actually had the guts to call the criticism "pathetic."

"I remember we issued a statement at Christmastime," Spicer went on, "calling Christ the king, and many of the reporters that are in this room and otherwise started wondering whether we were referring to the king as the president-elect. Do you know how offensive that was to Christians?" 

Cue a hundred thousand eye-rolls.

Spicer continued to bash the media and pointed fingers at the Obama administration (what's new?), and refused to reveal who wrote the statement.

Oh, Sean Spicer. Please, just sit down.
