At a White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer responded to a question about a report in ProPublica that shows Donald Trump made changes to his business trust after taking office. The change allows him to withdraw profits at any time, without any public notice or scrutiny and reportedly gives him access to the behind-the-scenes financials of the 400 companies he was supposed to separate himself from before taking office. Spicer’s response was to slam ProPublica, dismissing them as nothing more than a “left-wing blog” and glossing over the eagle-eyed reporting done by Derek Kravitz and Al Shaw.
That approach isn’t working out so well for Spicer. ProPublica replied with a flurry of damning facts, bringing all the receipts and it is going viral for great reason. See the tweetstorm of fury below."
