RNC Spox was asked by The Weekly Standard if what Trump said in the sex tape is sexual assault and Spicer replied, "I don't know. I'm not a lawyer."

He later came out and denied he ever said those words when asked by The Washington Post.

The RNC Spox said, " "I never said it."

Well guess what?

The Weekly Standard's John McCormack provided audio proof of the conversation with Spicer which then forced Spicer to change his tune, telling the WaPo, "While I was asked question about a matter of law, it is never appropriate to touch anyone in an unwelcome manner.”

While the RNC has tried to portray itself as paragon of virtue during this presidential campaign, it's not surprising that their top spokesman lies like the rest of the Trump surrogates.
