No Pope For You!

I’m no fan of Sean Spicer, Donald Trump’s unfortunate surrogate, leader of his fire brigade and all around door mat for the administration. I have lost count of how many times Spicer has had to stand in front of the press and trumsplain yet another White House fuck up only to have the idiot king
