The Washington Post needs to clear something up.
During the chaos outside the White House in the aftermath of President Donald Trump ‘s firing of former FBI Director James Comey , Press Secretary Sean Spicer was not hiding in the bushes from reporters. He was hiding among the bushes.
The newspaper issued a absurd correction Wednesday night to an absurd story: That Spicer stood behind a hedge to hide from reporters after the Comey bombshell dropped on Tuesday.
The Post initially wrote that he emerged after “several minutes hidden in the darkness and in the bushes.”
Spicer eventually emerged to answer questions — requesting that he was not filmed and it be done in total darkness.
He told reporters, “Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off,” he said. “We’ll take care of this. … Can you just turn that light off?”

However, someone was clearly unhappy with the description of Spicer hiding in the bushes.
A correction was appended to the bottom of the Post story on Wednesday night that read, “This story has been updated to more precisely describe White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s location late Tuesday night in the minutes before he briefed reporters. Spicer huddled with his staff among bushes near television sets on the White House grounds, not ‘in the bushes,’ as the story originally stated.”
Naturally, Twitter had a field day with the revelation. Spicer on phone to WaPo: xEFxBFxBD
“I was not IN the bushes!
I was AMONG the bushes!”
