Sean Spicer, the short-lived White House Press Secretary who was the inspiration for many a SNL skit has written a book, and is thus touring the country to promote said book.
Naturally, as he was a member of the Trump administration, he has attracted quite a few enemies, some of whom have been trying to crash his book signing events as he travels to promote his memoir of his time in the White House, The Briefing.
One man who showed up to heckle him, however, seems to be an enemy he made long before his association with Trump: the two apparently had a schoolyard brawl when they were teenagers.
The man, identified as Alex Lombard, confronted Spicer as he signed books at a Barnes & Noble in Middletown, RI on Friday, shouted out “Sean!” from across the room. Spicer waved and replied “hey!” clearly thinking he was just a fan.
“Sean, I was a day student at [Portsmouth] Abbey, too, with you,” he said.
“Yes, how are you?” Spicer replied.
“Remember? Yeah. Don’t remember that you tried to fight me?”
The crowd at this point laughed, most likely thinking that Lombard was just joking around.
Lombard, who is African-American, said “Yeah. No, but you called me a n***** first, right? Remember? Remember? You called me a n***** first, Sean.”
At this point, security approached Lombard and began guiding him away from Spicer, but not before Lombard added “I was fourteen! I was a scared kid then, Sean! I’m not scared to fight you now!”
Spicer’s team says he has no memory of this incident, which is possible, but it’s also what pretty much everyone says when allegations of things like sexual assault are brought up against them, and one thinks Spicer would most likely have denied it had he been certain he’d never said it.
One of the downsides of choosing a life in the public eye–every little thing you’ve ever done wrong may come back to haunt you at some point!
