Sean Spicer Wears This Secret Weapon During Press Briefings

Being a White House press secretary is a tough job. You have to be informed on every issue, with the most up-to-date information. You have to be able to articulate it well so that words can't be twisted and meaning can't be miscommunicated. You have to face rooms full of squawking reporters fighting for recognition. The job entails a lot of pressure.

And if you're President Donald Trump's press secretary, kick that up about a hundred notches. A large portion of the media are not nearly as interested in getting the news as they are interested in finding some detail to satisfy their vendetta against Mr. Trump. The president doesn't make it easier when he tweets his own late-night musings, rails back against the press by calling them 'fake news,' or makes fun of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'Celebrity Apprentice' ratings at the National Prayer Breakfast.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer has only been on the job for about three weeks, but already he's gotten into heated debates with the press corps, been ridiculed on Saturday Night Live, and scrutinized for his steadfast position that Dippin' Dots are unpleasant and overrated treats.

Apparently, there is something that keeps Mr. Spicer getting up in the morning. It's the thing that helps fuel him so he can face that gaggle of journalists every day and soak up everything new thing going on in this fast-paced administration every 24 hours. And if you look closely, you can see it.

Every picture of Spicer this week shows Spicer wearing a rainbow-beaded bracelet with letters that spell out ‘DAD.' The bracelet was made by one of his sons, and Spicer has taken to wearing it at every press conference, every television interview and every photo op. It's as if it's an amulet against the slings and arrows of the outside world, empowered with his family's love and support.
