Whether you place it in them, or simply among them, is your decision.
After the White House on Tuesday said there would be nothing more from them on the firing, Spicer, Sanders, and Kellyanne Conway rushed on to cable networks to defend Trump's decision.
It was not at all a good look for the press secretary.
On May 11, acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe contradicts statements made by White House principle deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders the day before, stating that fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James B. Comey had "lost confidence" with the "rank-n-file" of the agency.
"All I want is for Comey to be honest" regarding the Russian Federation investigation, Trump continued.
Still, it appears Spicer's biggest gripe this week is how media reports have made his performance into comedy sketch material, literally.
Sanders is filling in for Spicer this week as he attends to his duties with the Navy Reserve, which the White House said were "previously scheduled".
Yet during Thursday's White House press briefing, after the relevant parts of the interview had been released, Sanders repeatedly dismissed the idea that there were inconsistencies in the White House's timeline leading up to Comey's termination.
And this: "You could ask Sarah Sanders about puppies running around in a park today and she'd bring up the 'Democrats'". And if I am felled upon the battle field, the world will whisper my words to you: "Woohoo, sweet release, I am free".
On Twitter, Thrush continued quoting her. Sanders: "I gave you the best information I had at the moment".
It has been well documented that Donald Trump is highly aware of which members of his staff play well on television, and he was evidently happy with how Sarah Huckabee Sanders represented the campaign. The latest poll on the Comey firing, from Gallup, has approval/disapproval of the move at 39/46, yet another result that's in line with Trump's overall job approval.
The Atlantic's White House reporter Rosie Gray also spotted a problem with her.
Then Sanders stepped up to the lectern on Thursday afternoon.
Oliver Willis, senior writer for the liberal ShareBlue, is also not a fan.
In the bushes or among them, Spicer may be taking cover for real. She didn't back down from her claim.
But Bennett's tweet doesn't actually signal any disrespect.
On Friday morning, CNN anchor Don Lemon tweeted a video of actress Melissa McCarthy rolling down a Manhattan street, dressed as Sean Spicer on a podium with wheels.
WaPo liberal columnist Jonathan Capehart questioned her truthiness: "Wow".
