Oh, what a tangled and pathetic web they weave when they practice to deceive.

Here’s White House press secretary Josh Earnest, hard at work on Twitter tonight, trying to spin the Washington Post’s exclusive on the administration’s cover-up and politicizing of the DHS Inspector General’s office to whitewash one of its aide’s involvement in the Cartagena/Secret Service hooker scandal.

Old news? Duuuuuuude. You’re channeling Tommy “Benghazi was, like, two years old” Vietor.

Twitter users of all political stripes LOL’ed at the flackery and hackery. But really, Earnest deserves some pity. Spin machine operatives take on myriad occupational hazards of self-harm. This has gotta hurt.

Get your popcorn ready!
