Sean Spicer is making headlines yet again. The newly appointed White House Press Secretary was the subject of ridicule over the weekend when he lashed out at both the media and reality itself when he said that Trump’s inauguration had the most inaugural attendees ever — a flat out lie.
People started digging into his past tweets, hoping to uncover a reason as to why he would go on stage and make a buffoon out of himself in his first public address to the nation. They didn’t find anything related to that, but what they did find was much, much stranger.
If you’ve been to a movie theater or theme park over the past decade or two, you’ve probably seen Dippin’ Dots ice cream. The tiny spherical frozen treats are encased in a pretty sophisticated machine that’ll trade you several dozen dots for a couple of bucks. They generally taste good, but are somewhat overpriced, though what vending machine treat isn’t?
Why am I bringing up Dippin’ Dots in an article discussing Sean Spicer? Well…
OK, so that’s not really a big deal. It’s not like he’s going to bring it up again 17 months later or anything.
He then tweeted a story about the company filing for bankruptcy, and was smug about it.
I know it isn’t a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, but good grief, man, control yourself. The thing is — he clearly buys the stuff regularly because a few years later, he shot this bad boy out into the Twittersphere.
Dippin’ Dots, which is an American company that employs hundreds of American workers, made a peace offering.
Scott Fischer, the CEO of Dippin’ Dots, even wrote an open letter to Sean Spicer, inviting him and his White House cronies to an ice cream social to bury the hatchet.
No response has been made by Spicer and his team, but you can damn well bet that this is probably going to be the first question that pops out of a reporter’s mouth during the next White House press release.
The thing is…it doesn’t end there. Maybe anything that alludes to the future just isn’t his thing, because aside from Dippin’ Dots, which are the ice cream of the future, Spicer hates Daft Punk.
When someone pointed out that they’ve been pretty big for more than a decade, he backpedalled, claiming to be an early fan of Daft “Funk,” but that their old stuff was better.
Daft Punk hasn’t released a statement, and it’s highly unlikely that they will care. At all. While we’re only a few days into the new presidency, it’s pretty easy to see that Spicer is going to be one of our favorite recurring characters over the next four years.
