Sean Spicer's statement floods Internet with Trump's bathrobe pictures
"There were literally blatant factual errors, and it's unacceptable to see that kind of reporting or so-called reporting," Spicer said.
In yet another experience for US President Donald Trump's team on fact checking before speaking, Internet dug out proof of the falsity of claims made by US Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Recently, Spicer was replying to a question on The New York Times report which detailed the President's unsettling first two weeks in office and the White House. Spicer said, "That story was so riddled with inaccuracies and lies that they owe the President an apology for the way that thing was written."
It was this line in the article that Spicer was referring to: "When Mr. Trump is not watching television in his bathrobe or on his phone reaching out to old campaign hands and advisers, he will sometimes set off to explore the unfamiliar surroundings of his new home."
"There were literally blatant factual errors, and it's unacceptable to see that kind of reporting or so-called reporting," he added. "That is literally the epitome of fake news," he said further.
And then he gave an example of bathrobe saying, "I don't think the President owns a bathrobe, (he) definitely doesn't wear one." However, Internet took it on itself to dig out the photographic evidence of POTUS wearing a bathrobe.
Here are some of the results of digging around.

T: Another thing.
T: Tell 'em I don't even own a bathrobe.
Spicer: (looks at Trump, who's wearing a bathrobe)
T: You heard me.

If Donald Trump hasn't got a bathrobe (with gold initials), he isn't doing billionaire right.
