Spicer’s Emmy stunt set a really bad precedent

Have we really already fallen to the point, in this era where the president is retweeting videos of himself attacking Hillary Clinton with a golf shot, when this is something that is allowed to stand without even serious rebuke or condemnation? Amazingly, It feels like we have, and we are only eight months into this presidency!

The implications of this are actually pretty profound. If even the presidential spokesman can, with great passion, blatantly lie to the American people and then be forgiven/rewarded and “get out of jail free” by simply pretending that it was all just a frivolous joke, then who or what exactly keeps something like this from happening in the future on a topic more substantial than crowd size?

Certainly not the hypocrites in Hollywood.
