Photo Of Sean Spicer Is Going Viral - Do You Notice Something Strange?

When it comes to social media, it seems there is no topic left uncovered. Perhaps people have too much time on their hands, or spend way too much time chatting online. One of the latest topics under scrutiny is the White House press secretary's wardrobe flaws.

It started last week when Sean Spicer came to the podium for the daily press briefing. Reporters noted that the press secretary's U.S. flag pin was upside-down.

An upside-down American flag is a sign of great distress. Usually it's done during times of danger, or during serious protests of the government. In Spicer’s case, however, it was just a simple slip of the pin.

After Spicer joked with the press corps and corrected the mistake, social media users began scouring videos and pictures to find other Spicer wardrobe malfunctions. Sure enough, they found one that seemed to have a growing number of Twitter users stumped. This was the biggest Spicer wardrobe news since the report broke about the devoted father wearing a beaded bracelet that his kids made for him.

On Monday, a tweet went viral when someone posted a photo of Spicer standing in the background of a press conference. The press secretary appeared to be wearing one brown shoe, and one black sneaker.

The mismatched shoes sent Twitter users off on a frenzy of speculation. People wondered if this was another cry for distress-- perhaps Spicer really was being held prisoner by the Trump administration. Or perhaps working for the current administration was weighing so heavily on him that Spicer was falling apart and couldn't even keep his shoes straight.

After all the gossip about the possible reason for the shoe mismatch got juicy, a more rational explanation surfaced: he wasn't wearing mismatched shoes at all. He was wearing his regular shoe on one foot, and a foot brace on the other.

Now that social media has gotten to the bottom of the Spicer shoe debacle, Americans can rest easy. But those looking for something new to talk about might get lucky yet; the press secretary might come in with a loose thread, or a splotch on his tie someday.

No way!
