Bushwhacked

Hilarious memes of Sean Spicer hiding in the bushes will have you ROTFLOLing

In case you still haven’t heard, Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday night amidst rumors that the bureau’s investigation into the president’s ties to Russia were heating up bigly. Naturally, a nationwide frenzy ensued.

This is only the second time in history that an FBI Director has been let go. The fact that he was canned by the president while investigating the president only makes it all the more suspicious. Oh, and did we mention he learned of his sudden unemployment by a breaking news report on TV?

After the story broke, the press went wild. Meanwhile, the White House scrambled to explain itself. During the chaos, Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave an impromptu briefing with Fox Business from the White House grounds… then literally disappeared into the shadows.

Reporters went looking for him. He was found a few minutes later hiding near a cluster of dark bushes. When he saw the reporters, he ducked behind a tall hedge. When he was approached, he freaked out at the cameramen and said, “Just turn the lights off! Turn the lights off! We’ll take care of this. … Can you just Turn. That. Light. Off?!

Oh, but it doesn’t end there.

After the Washington Post published a story claiming Spicer was hiding “in” the bushes, someone (presumably Spicer) demanded the paper clarify that he wasn’t “in” the bushes, he was “among” the bushes. The Post acquiesced and printed the following correction:

Still, that didn’t stop the memes.
