White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was interviewed by conservative news site Breitbart on Thursday after a federal appeals court decided to decline the Department of Justice’s request to restore President Trump’s so-called Muslim ban.
The interview was broadcast live on Breitbart’s Facebook page and was almost painful for viewers to watch.
As is the nature with live video, the awkwardness unfortunately could not be contained or hidden by editing. The interview was plagued with moments of awkward silence, strange camera angles, and odd background noises.
