Last week was perhaps the craziest of Trump’s presidency so far, which, wooooo boy, is saying a lot. After the commander in chief suddenly fired FBI director James Comey for doing his job too well on Tuesday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer dodged a swarm of understandably curious reporters by hiding in the bushes on the White House lawn.
After successfully taking a breather in his safe space, Spicer only agreed to answer questions if he could do it in total darkness away from TV cameras while standing between two tall hedges, per The Washington Post. If the rumors are true that Trump is considering relieving ol’ Spicey of his duties, then at least he left us with one incredible—albeit uncaptured—parting image. Spicer later told the The Washington Post he was “huddling among bushes” and not “hiding in the bushes,” as they previously stated. Hididng is hiding, Spicey.
Predictably, the good people of the Internet immediately jumped on the bizarre situation, leading to A+ memes and some shrewd arts and crafts. Facebook user Lisa Kadonaga quickly devised her own “Garden Spicer”: a cut-out of the Press Secretary’s face that you can stick in your own shrubs.
Kadonaga unveiled her creation (as well as the easy instructions) on her Facebook page: “Now you too can have the White House Press Secretary in – or rather, “among” – the bushes in your yard. And hey, if you’re concerned that when exposed to the outdoors, the image will run ….no worries, that’s exactly what Sean Spicer does, so it’s totally authentic!”
Since we’re about to see a whole lot less of Spicer—ditto Melissa McCarthy as the lovably incompetent oaf—this is the easiest way to keep your pal in your garden (and life) forever.
