During an already embarrassing interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, White House press secretary Sean Spicer dropped a bombshell statement that President Donald Trump wants to “destabilize” the Middle East.
"I came out to make sure we stay focused on what the president is doing and his decisive action. I needed to make sure that I clarified, and not was in any shape or form any more of a distraction from the president's decisive action in Syria and the attempts that he is making to destabilize the region and root out ISIS out of Syria," Spicer said.
Now, there are two possibilities: Either Spicer doesn’t know what “destabilize” means or Trump actually wants to destabilize the Middle East.
There is a good chance that Spicer misspoke. He is, after all, notorious for mispronouncing the simplest of words. For reference, watch the video below:
If it indeed was a case of a verbal gaffe, then it is doubly embarrassing for Spicer because, during that interview with Blitzer, he was already apologizing for claiming Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemicals to kill his own people during his daily White House press conference.
Sean Spicer has said twice now that Trump wants to destabilize the Middle East. Hey Trump voters, did you vote for more wars or America 1st?— William LeGate (@williamlegate) April 12, 2017
However, it’s highly likely Spicer doesn’t know the meaning of “destabilize.”
