White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has had many questions to answer these last few days.
Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey prompted uproar, with media outlets scrambling to get a coherent explanation why.
Well, the Press Secretary appears to have come up with a full proof plan to avoid the journalists.
According to The Washington Post, he’s utilising the bushes near the White House to "hide" him.
Earlier reports indicated he was hiding in the bushes, however the original article has been updated for the sake of accuracy: Spicer and his staff had been standing "among" the bushes.
Spicer on phone to WaPo: 😡
"I was not IN the bushes!
I was AMONG the bushes!"
