Sean Spicer Makes A Complete Fool Of Himself During Press Briefing And Twitter Loses It
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held a press briefing Friday where he started with a slight wardrobe malfunction. The Press Secretary was wearing his flag pin in his lapel upside down.
Spicer had no clue that it was like that and remained upside down for several minutes until Omarosa Manigault, director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, passed Spicer a note once he wrapped up his initial statement, seemingly about the flag pin mishap.
Spicer then messed with it a little but was unsuccessful in turning it to its proper side. That’s when Fox News’ White House correspondent John Roberts brought it to Spicer’s attention that the flag was still upside down.
“John Roberts, always helpful with the fashion tips,” Spicer said, with the pin still upside down.
“It’s still upside down,” another reporter chimed in.

NYDailyNews.com reported that an upside-down flag is a sign of distress.
