“Would you characterize the behavior described in that as sexual assault,” the conservative Weekly Standard’s John McCormack asked the GOP’s top spokesperson, Sean Spicer.
“I don’t know,” Spicer replied. “I’m not a lawyer.”
But the Republican National Committee’s feigned ignorance in defense of Trump did not hold up for very long. When confronted with his quote, Spicer denied ever making it.
“I never said it,” Spicer later insisted when The Washington Post called to check his quote.
McCormack provided audio of his taped interview with Spicer to the Post, and he also asked the same question of top Trump surrogate and U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama.
