Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer during showed up at the Richard Nixon Library & Museum in Yorba Linda, California, on Tuesday to promote his new book, “The Briefing: Politics, The Press and the President.” But the event was interrupted after multiple protestors started shouting “shame on you” and accusing him of “lying.”
The video below shows multiple protestors shouting at Spicer as he begins speaking, with one demonstrator shouting, “We will not accept lying.”
Another, who was streaming the interactions live, stands up moments later and shouts, “We will not allow you to profit off of lying to the American people.”
“Shame on you,” the protestor, who was posting the video for the group Unofficial: DNC, then yelled before being escorted out of the venue.
The protests come as Spicer continues a nationwide tour to promote his memoir on his time working in the White House under President Trump. The book has drawn scrutiny based on his actions while working as the lead spokesperson for Trump.
Spicer was interrupted by a protester last week who called him a “piece of garbage” during a book signing in New York.
“Hey Sean, you’re a real piece of garbage and I hope you look around and see all these empty seats,” a man shouted inside the Union Square Barnes & Noble bookstore. “And I hope you realize in even in New York City people will not come and pay to hear you speak.”
