RNC chief strategist and communications director Sean Spicer got a little flustered on CNN this morning when Kate Bolduan and John Berman confronted him about Donald Trump trashing a popular Republican governor.
Trump went on a tear against Susana Martinez and how bad she is for the state. Spicer said today they just “have some differences that need to continue to be resolved.”
He was pressed on the whole “party unity” problem and tried to deflect to say the Democrats have it worse. Bolduan and Berman tried to keep him on-topic, but Spicer got a little flustered and said, “Let me just answer the question!”
Berman pointed out that if a Democrat had trashed a Republican governor the way Trump had, he would have a very different reaction.
A bewildered Spicer stammered a bit about how he’s been defending Martinez’ record to the hilt, saying, “I don’t know how much more defending of her I could possibly do!”
