President Donald Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer has been settling into his new role in the manner one might expect of a member of Trump’s Cabinet, as he opened with a scathing rant about the journalists Trump hates so much and it can only escalate from here. Over the years, Spicer has inadvertently made a name for himself via Twitter rants, revealing himself to the world as the grumpy sitcom character that never was before entering the history books as the press secretary of a pretty memorable POTUS.

Memes featuring Spicer have been flooding the internet, since he made several statements over the weekend that have been proven false, and now we can look back at some of the weird, wonderful and hilarious things he’s been doing with his life.

Spicer vs Dippin’ Dots

In 2010, Spicer waged war against the ice cream company Dippin’ Dots. Dippin’ Dots is a company that describes its product as “the ice cream of the future,” which Spicer took exception to when he was attending a Nationals game, trying to buy his favourite flavour (vanilla) at the Dippin’ Dots stall, and found that they were all out.

In his ire, Spicer tweeted, “Dippin dots is NOT the ice cream of the future,” and his feud with the company continued for years to come. In 2011, he tweeted, “I think I have said this before but Dippin Dots are notthe (sic) ice cream of the future,” and “Ice Cream of the Past: Dippin’ Dots Files for Bankruptcy,” including a link to the press release announcing the bankruptcy. In 2015, he still felt upset about it, tweeting: “If Dippin Dots was truly the ice cream of the future they would not have run out of vanilla.”

Spicer vs Daft Punk

During the 2014 Grammys, Spicer tweeted a lot about Daft Punk, insulting their performance while misspelling their name.

He tweeted, “Daft Funk -- this is your 10 seconds in the spotlight - u r blowing it #GRAMMYs #Grammys2014” and later, a more confusing follow-up tweet: “@DanDoranBlum was an early and still fan but come on helmets? tey need to grow up.” Exactly what he meant by this is unclear, but he certainly objects to their choice to wear helmets. #Donald Trump #Celebrities #Music
