White House press secretary Sean Spicer has finally found his groove, according to “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, and he has done it by showing “complete disdain for the media.”
The whole sketch was spot-on. Depending on your view of Spicer and the media, the takeaway is either that Spicer treats reporters like children or that reporters act like children.
The best part was that “The Daily Show” portrayed individual journalists.
There was New York Times reporter “Glenn Thrush” and his fedora.
There was American Urban Radio Networks reporter “April Ryan” and her head shake.
And there was Newsmax reporter “John Gizzi” and his glasses.
The sketch was funny, even if you didn't recognize the journalists the kids portrayed. But if you're a hopeless political junkie who watches the briefing every day and actually knows what these non-TV journalists look like, it was even better.
