Watch Samantha Bee’s ‘Full Frontal’ Team Crash Sean Spicer’s Book Tour

Stephen Miller look-alikes, “unicorn, riding a unicorn over a rainbow” try to ask ex-press secretary tough questions

Samantha Bee and her Full Frontal team trolled Sean Spicer in increasingly ridiculous ways during the former White House Press Secretary’s recent book tour.

In July, Spicer began to cash in on his brief stint in President Donald Trump’s administration with the release of a new book, The Briefing. As Bee pointed out, the book finds Spicer peddling lies and spinning the truth with the same regularity he did in front of the White House press corps. For instance, in the book Spicer refers to Trump’s comments in the Access Hollywood tape as bragging about being able “to seduce women,” while he used this peculiar image to describe the president: “He is a unicorn, riding a unicorn over a rainbow.”

With Spicer embarking on a publicity tour in support of his book, Bee enlisted her Full Frontal staff to confront him about the falsehoods he pushed as press secretary. Unsurprisingly, such questions weren’t well received, and typically ended with a correspondent being escorted from the reading. Not even the semi-familiar face of a Stephen Miller look-a-like could get a response from Spicer, though Full Frontal writer and correspondent Ashley Nicole Black – disguised as a Trump supporter – was able to to quip as Spicer signed her book, “Is it weird now to watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders do the press conferences? Do you feel like a little, ‘Oh man I wish I was up there tricking the press!'”

In one last attempt to get Spicer to truthfully answer a tough question, Full Frontal followed him to an event at a Rhode Island country club, where they unleashed a real-life version of “a unicorn, riding a unicorn over a rainbow.” However, that glorious beast was also forced to leave the premises.
