Exclusive Interview with Man Who Alleges Sean Spicer Called Him N-Word

A video went viral this week after a black man angrily confronted former White House press secretary Sean Spicer at a bookstore.

The video shows Spicer seated, signing copies of his new book at a bookstore in Middletown, Rhode Island. A black man standing a few feet away suddenly calls out to him and says, “Remember you tried to fight me?” Others in the store start chuckling—perhaps thinking the two were engaging in playful banter. Then the man says, “But you called me a nigger first” and the crowd’s mood instantly changes.



The black man in the video is Alex Lombard. He is accusing Sean Spicer of calling him the n-word and with trying to attack him when they both were high school students at Portsmouth Abbey, a boarding school in Rhode Island. In an interview with Black Enterprise, he goes into detail about his memory of Spicer, his subsequent conversation with the former press secretary after the incident, and why he felt the need for the confrontation.

“The first week I was [at Portsmouth Abbey] I was coming to chapel like we had to do every morning,” Lombard recalls. “I’m just walking and I hear somebody screaming ‘What is that f—–g nigger doing here?”

Lombard says he then looked to his left and saw someone running at him at full sprint, someone he insists was Sean Spicer. At the time, Lombard was a sophomore and Spicer, a junior.

“A couple of other students grabbed him and stopped him and he was screaming something else. That was really, basically it. I was frozen,” Lombard remembers. “I was scared; it frightened me. There were at least 20 to 30 other people out there—all of us walking. Everybody had on sports jackets, ties, shirts. I just made my way back to the dorm.”

Spicer, who is denying the incident took place, says he has plans to sue the Associated Press for reporting on the heated exchange at the bookstore.

“That’s a classic Trump move; suing the media,” says Lombard. His recollection is quite detailed about what took place at his school that day many years ago and his account comes across as credible. Lombard says Spicer even called him after the bookstore confrontation, and suspects he got his number from a mutual friend of theirs.

“He called me from a blocked number. The incident happened Friday…he called me Saturday evening.”

“When he called he was at the cusp of apologizing. He was right there at the threshold and he sounded extremely apologetic on the phone but he would not admit that was him,” Lombard says. “He said you are trying to hurt me because of your political [beliefs]—he said why are you waiting years later to do this, why now, am I over it, can I get over this?”

He says that the call ended on a peaceful note with Spicer somewhat bizarrely praising him with “you handled that situation better than a lot of people.”

Spicer, of course, is notorious for his combativeness during White House press briefings. Bullying in his youth seems to be in line with the behavior he exhibited during these briefings, including the time he “lambasted reporters with accusations of false reporting on the size of the crowds during the inauguration,” as per The Boston Globe.  His old boss has raised bullying to an art form. The president and those currently and formerly in his circle seem to adhere to the idea of strong-arming as a form of governing.

Even in his new memoir, The Briefing, critics observe that Spicer retains a pugnacious tone. “He rummages through the mistakes of major news outlets during the Trump era. The Washington Post, The New York Times, ABC News, CNN, and others are criticized for false reports or suspect claims, such as the time Spicer stood accused—falsely, he says—of expropriating a mini-refrigerator from junior staff members,” writes Erik Wemple for The Washington Post.

Still, Lombard, now married and a teacher and adviser at a community college, insists his action at the bookstore was not politically motivated and that accosting Spicer made him “absolutely” feel better  “I was just waiting to get [this] off my chest. I had been emailing [Spicer] on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and he never responded. This was nothing ever political, this was some townie stuff, you know what I mean? This was personal. We live in the same town and maybe it wasn’t the best forum I chose to confront him, but I was upset.”

James Corden Addresses the Infamous Sean Spicer Kiss

During the Late Late Show’s opening monologue, host James Corden responded to the now-infamous kiss on the cheek with Sean Spicer. Corden told the crowd, “According to some reports, at the after party, Spicer was the most popular guy in the room.” He goes on to slam “Hollywood phonies” for embracing Spicer asking, “I mean who did this? Who are we talking about here?” Then a photo of Corden kissing Spicer on the cheek flashed on the screen. Corden looked embarrassed to say the least. “Now, I know you think that’s a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer, but in the spirit of Sean Spicer, no it isn’t,” he explained. “Anyone ever have that feeling where you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think, ‘Oh, god who did I kiss last night?’ It’s a bit like that.”

Donald Trump Gives Sean Spicer His Final Kiss On ‘SNL’

Sean Spicer’s days as the White House press secretary could be nearing their end, and “Saturday Night Live” did not pass up the opportunity to imagine what they’d look like.

After teasing her “SNL” appearance this week by rolling (literally) through the streets of New York, Melissa McCarthy popped out of the bushes and reprised her role as Spicer once again this week.

McCarthy, who was hiding among the bushes as Spicer, interrupted Aidy Bryant’s stint as Sarah Huckabee Sanders ― President Donald Trump’s political aide who took on the press this week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. 

After booting Sanders from the stage, McCarthy’s Spicer aggressively fielded questions from the press, but things got dicey when reporters started asking the press secretary if he was afraid of losing his job like Comey.

Spicer defended his boss, saying that he endures POTUS’ abuse because they’re friends. But the questioning eventually leads him on a journey to the streets of New York, then a golf course in New Jersey, to ask Trump once and for all what his future at the White House looks like.

Long story short, it ended with Spicer’s final kiss.

“I don’t think I can do this anymore, Mr. Trump,” Spicer told Alec Baldwin’s Trump. “They’re saying that you’re going to replace me with Sarah.”

“Sean, come on, I would never do that,” the president replied. Sarah Huckabee Sanders “doesn’t have your special spice: Salt and pepper, a little bit of sugar.”

“Sean,” Trump said. “Kiss me.”

In the clip above, watch Spicer’s final moments in the Trump administration, as imagined by “SNL.”

Sean Spicer Sends Distress Signal To America With Upside-Down Flag Pin

During Friday’s White House press conference, Sean Spicer sent Twitter into a frenzy when he wore his American flag pin upside down. Though Spicer’s unfortunate move was likely accidental, an upside-down American flag is an officially recognized sign of distress.

Almost immediately, everyone on Twitter began making the same joke about what kind of signal Spicer was trying to send. 

The upside-down flag was recently used in a promotion for the next season of “House of Cards,” so of course the Netflix show tweeted about Spicer’s mishap: 

Spicer’s error was flagged down during the press conference and he quickly fixed it. According to Yahoo White House correspondent Hunter Walker, Omarosa Manigault reportedly passed Spicer a note about the error. 

We know Melissa McCarthy and the “Saturday Night Live” writers are just loving this new material.

Twitter Offers Glimpse into Soul of Sean Spicer

Sean Spicer became a household name yesterday when he attacked the media, and anyone retweeting memes, for their lack of “facts” regarding President Trump’s inauguration attendance. While mostly political, rare tweets from Twitter account @seanspicer offer a glimpse into his soul. Here’s what I learned about the current White House Press Secretary and Communications Director for President Donald Trump:

Sean likes NYC bagels and just wants followers.
He won’t forget his early followers. He is ready for Christmas in October, but loves a last minute holiday deal. He cracks jokes and loves bbq sauce. He fangirls over Missy Franklin and watches Matt Lauer on TODAY. He even mourned celebrities Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs.
He thinks Pauly Shore is “random” and staying home to cook can save money. He wonders if the purchase is even worth it when he sees how long the checkout line is. He’s felt like the oldest person at the z100 Jingle Ball. He loves to turn a simple “Happy Birthday” into a joke, time after time.

Sean eats cookies as meals and pretends not to be phased by pop culture..

..but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

He rarely wears a seatbelt in a cab and he doesn’t always make sense..

..but he has a life, you know.

He loves Fridays.

He can be an introvert sometimes.

Sometimes.

He said something nice once.

He could really use a lottery win.

He doesn’t always get his socks right.
