‘Russian Dressing is For Sandwiches’: Twitter Reacts to Sean Spicer’s Salad Comment



Today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer answered April Ryan‘s question about the administration needing to “revamp its image” because of things like its connections to Russia by saying that no connection exists. He then said something that will no doubt be remembered for a long, long time: “If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection.”

There’s a lot to unpack here. First, has Spicer ever eaten Russian dressing? It doesn’t really go on salads. Reuben sandwiches, definitely. But not salads — Twitter was quick to point this out:

Others interpreted “salad” as “word salad,” and found it made more sense that way:

Others, still, used the opportunity to remind us that Russian dressing on a salad from the President might not be altogether surprising, given his preference for well-done steak with ketchup.
