Sam Stein: Spicer’s Words on Town Halls ‘Identical’ to What Gibbs Said in 2009

‘It seems so similar’

EXCERPT:

STEIN: "Prior to the election, approval for the Affordable Care Act was negative. Now it’s starting to tick upward as people realize what it is and people think that it could be taken away. And this is a hornet’s nest, I feel like. It just seems to similar to me. You played a clip of Sean Spicer up at the top. Those are almost identical words to what Robert Gibbs was saying in 2009 when he was dismissing the Tea Party protests as AstroTurf and is reminiscent of the Brooks Brothers riots from 2000. It just seems so similar. If I were a Republican member, at this point I would tread very carefully when you go to these town halls."
