After Donald Trump lashed out at the New York Times, his puppet secretary Sean Spicer defended him and demanded that they apologized to the President.
“That report was so riddled with inaccuracies and lies that they owe the president an apology,” Spicer told reporters aboard Air Force One Monday. “There were just literally blatant factual errors and it’s unacceptable to see that kind of reporting or so-called reporting.”
The report was about Trump’s daily routine after normal business hours, stating that the president sits in a bathrobe watching television and marks up negative news articles with a Sharpie.
“I don’t think the president owns a bathrobe; he definitely doesn’t wear one,” spicer said. “From top to bottom they made up stories that just don’t exist. And I think that’s unfortunate.”
It didn’t take long until social media decided to bash Trump using old photos of him wearing a bathrobe.

The New York Times responded to Spicer’s remarks. “We stand by our story,” Danielle Rhoades Ha, the newspaper’s vice president of communications, said in an email.
The New York Times also reported saying that Trump was not fully briefed when he signed an executive order giving Bannon a permanent seat on the National Security Council’s Principal’s Committee.
But then again, there was Spicer to defend Trump.
“The president is clearly aware of the policies that come out of the White House with his name on it,” he said.
“The president was briefed on all aspects,” he continued. “When it comes to decisions and policy, it’s the president who leads. The president tells us how to implement it.”
