After a montage of some of the lowlights from his time as White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer told MSNBC's Craig Melvin this afternoon that President Trump was an understanding boss:

[Trump] was never mean...Most of the time he actually said, 'Hey, I know you were trying really hard. You know, alright, we'll get over this.'

  • Spicer said that the RNC should return recent contributions — specifically, "any money that happened this cycle" — from former finance chair Steve Wynn, who faced allegations of sexual misconduct last week.
