White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had a strange analogy for all the Russian connections that have surfaced within the Trump Administration. Spicer claimed that “If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection.”
This comes after recent revelations from the FBI Director James Comey that the Trump Administration is under investigation for events that transpired during the election. Of course, following such groundbreaking news, reporters at the White House Press Room are asking lots of questions about Russia.
“At some point, report the facts. Every single person who has been briefed on this subject has come away with the same conclusion, Republican, Democrat,” Spicer exclaimed to White House correspondent April Ryan. “I’m sorry that that disgusts you. You’re shaking your head.”
“At some point, April, you’re going to have to take no for an answer with respect to whether or not there was collusion.
Within minutes of the Russian dressing remark, Twitter erupted with responses.
I didn't think Trump eats salads. Spicer should have said when Trump puts Russian dressing on his Big Macs.

@AriMelber Maybe Spicer means Trump's word salad, which is definitely smothered in Russian dressing…very suspicious.

Spicer: "If Donald had Russian dressing on his salad, you'd find a connection."
Nobody has laid on bullsh*t dressing that thick…

Kushner meeting with a SANCTIONED RUSSIAN BANK is equivalent to Russian dressing on salad. Got it.
