Angry at Numbers

Every part of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's press briefing yesterday is crazy (beginning with his claim that 720,000 people attended the inauguration) but if your time is limited to less than the entire 6 minutes, start at the 4 minute mark for peak incompetence (botches the title of Mexico's President and the day of Theresa May's visit).

One incidental detail that emerges from it is the sensitivity to the Churchill Bust meme, an affair that we've been monitoring for a long time. It's forgotten now, but it was Nile Gardiner who got that story in circulation, and it never went away.
