Sean Spicer Claims Donald Trump 'Definitely Doesn't Wear' A Bathrobe And Twitter Disagrees

The White House press secretary hates talking about Trump's immigration ban but is happy to deny claims the president wears a bathrobe.

First thing's first.

The White House Press Secretary is responsible for communicating the President's reactions to world events and providing information about the President's administration to the world's media.

Sadly for Sean Spicer – the unfortunate soul currently tasked with that job – the fact Donald Trump is now President means his role has taken on a whole new meaning.

Let's not forget that since Trump entered the Oval Officer less than a month ago, Spicer has already used 'alternative facts' (*ahem* lies) to claim the President saw the 'largest audience to ever witness an inauguration' and said it's okay for the White House to 'disagree with facts'.

Now, it's his job to refute claims Donald Trump wears a bathrobe.

All in a day's work, right Sean?

In a report by the New York Times about Trump's outrageous first weeks in office, the publication referred to 'the bungled rollout of his executive order barring immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries' and the President's 'aggressive approach' in the White House.

However, it was the fact the publication suggested the 45th President of the US likes to kick back on the sofa in a bathrobe that really ruffled feathers in the White House.

Yes, we know it doesn't make sense but, what does anymore?

'When Mr. Trump is not watching television in his bathrobe or on his phone reaching out to old campaign hands and advisers, he will sometimes set off to explore the unfamiliar surroundings of his new home,' read the article.

Of course, it didn't take long for Spicer to call the NYT's claim the 'epitome of fake news, saying: 'I don't think the president owns a bathrobe. He definitely doesn't wear one.'

Unfortunately for Spicey, Twitter begs to differ.

Besdies, what's so wrong with the President of the US wearing a bathrobe?

And yes, before you say it, the image does horrify us too but it's not entirely absurd to think the Leader of the Free World likes to wear something other than a suit all day, every day.

Twitter users were also keen to point out Trump wouldn't be the first President to favour a similar garment.

Thanks to Spicer's bizarre comment, we now have an image of him and Trump sitting in the Oval Office having a meeting in their bathrobes. Make it stop.
