These are certainly interesting times, but the Internet decided to take a break from analyzing Donald Trump’s second week in office to analyze why Sean Spicer wore a lime-green tie at Thursday’s press conference. That accessory choice by the White House press secretary annoyed a lot of people this morning, particularly Charlie Sheen.
The former Two and a Half Men star tweeted (in Charlie lingo) that Spicer should use the eyesore around his neck, tied in a Windsor knot, to “asphyxiate” himself.
“Bro, that s***** Windsor should b remodeled to asphyxiate u. U R a shameful husk. crawl back into your mom you baleful noxious shoat,” Sheen wrote.
should b remodeled
to asphyxiate u.
U R a shameful husk.
into your mom

This isn’t the first time Sheen has gone to extremes to let everyone know he’s not a fan of the new administration. Shortly after the passing of George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds, he tweeted, “Dear God; Trump next, please!”
After the inevitable backlash, he defended his remark.
Now, back to that green tie.
If you’re wondering what Spicer was actually discussing during his press briefing, don’t turn to Twitter to find the answer. There’s really only one thing people feel like talking about today.
Sean Spicer’s tie has not been extremely vetted.

Apparently, Trump has had problems with Spicer’s sense of style as well. Following his first official press briefing on Jan. 21, where Spicer sported an ill-fitting light gray suit, Axios reported a source said, “Trump hasn’t been impressed with how his new press secretary Sean Spicer dresses,” and that the president allegedly asked an aide, “Doesn’t the guy own a dark suit?” Two days later, Spicer wore a sharper, well-tailored suit when he addressed the press. Perhaps the makeover was courtesy of Trump?
As for today’s tie, Spicer might want to find an alternative one to wear tomorrow.
