The Deeper Meaning of Sean Spicer’s Cheeseballs

The actual cheese balls in question.

This is not a story from The Onion.

What really happened, according to CNN:

In an awkward moment Friday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer abruptly asked that his daily on-camera press briefing be “off camera,” causing the pool camera to turn away from Spicer as he spoke. Viewers of networks carrying the briefing watched as the pool camera panned right and focused on a big container of cheese puffs that was sitting on a table.

Is it just coincidence that the prez himself is not only considered a cheeseball, but is also orange? The press secretary is as silent on the matter as those cheese flavored puffs. We think the largely symbolic and possibly diversionary recent Syrian airstrike that Spicer avoided talking about by focusing on the orange ones is the more compelling topic.
