Sean Spicer said Thursday that he "screwed up" at times but never intentionally lied while he was White House Press Secretary. Spicer was interviewed on S.E. Cupp's HLN show Unfiltered

Key quote: "And so when I screwed up, it felt really bad. Because you realize that you're tarnishing your personal reputation, your family's reputation, your friends who like you and support you, you know, some of your colleagues and ultimately again, this administration and the American people who I wanted to do my best job for every single day."

  • On the subject of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury," which is to be released early tomorrow, Spicer said: "There is a lot of things I know are attributed to myself and other people that frankly never happened."
  • One more thing: Spicer said if Trump ran for re-election in 2020, "he will be the nominee of the Republican Party and he will serve a second term."

Driving the news: With less than two weeks before the election, the Biden campaign is drawing on the former president's popularity with Democrats to drive turnout and motivate voters.
