If Monday’s first full White House press briefing is any indication, it looks like press secretary Sean Spicer has a go-to phrase.

According to the media monitoring service TVEyes, Spicer used some form of the phrase “The President has made it clear” on 13 different occasions during his Monday briefing.

The verbal tic was particularly noticeable during the early portion of the briefing. In the first 12 minutes of questioning, Spicer dropped the phrase six times.

Twitter picked up on it too.

Indeed, Twitter users have made it clear that they’re going to catch these types of things from Sean Spicer going forward.
