…and you can see why they all reached for the pink stuff. Prznint Sundowner did it again, on foreign soil, per usual. And they all know that the FAKE NEWS!!1! tantrum is about to start.
So how do you spin this? Take it away, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham:

“What Prznint Stupid meant to say is that he’s a had a few EGRETS…” she didn’t add, her left eyelid twitching, looking for the door.
