Sean Spicer is the new White House Press Secretary and he has already learned how tough a job it is going to be navigating through the traps that the mainstream media are constantly setting.
One of the stories surrounding Spicer had nothing to do with politics at all.
Apparently, Sean Spicer has a long standing issue with the popular ice cream Dippin’ Dots to the point where the CEO came out and sent a direct message to him.
Here’s what the CEO of Dippin’ Dots had to say to Spicer this week…
“We’ve seen your tweets and would like to be friends rather than foes,” CEO Scott Fischer wrote in an open letter Monday. “After all, we believe in connecting the dots.”
Spicer had an extended gripe against Dippin’ Dots, according to his personal Twitter feed. In tweets in April 2010 and September 2011, Spicer declared that Dippin’ Dots wasn’t “the ice cream of the future.”
And in November 2011, he seemed to celebrate the company’s problems, tweeting a Wall Street Journal report on its filing for bankruptcy — while personally distinguishing it as “Ice Cream of the Past” alongside the Journal’s original headline.
The most recent tweet on the topic from Spicer’s personal handle came in September 2015. “If Dippin Dots was truly the ice cream of the future they would not have run out of vanilla,” he wrote then, copying the Washington Nationals on the tweet.
The full letter from Fisher reads as follows.
From Dippin’ Dots:
We understand that ice cream is a serious matter. And running out of your favorite flavor can feel like a national emergency! We’ve seen your tweets and would like to be friends rather than foes. After all, we believe in connecting the dots.
As you may or may not know, Dippin’ Dots are made in Kentucky by hundreds of hard working Americans in the heartland of our great country. As a company, we’re doing great. We’ve enjoyed double-digit growth in sales for the past three years. That means we’re creating jobs and opportunities. We hear that’s on your agenda too.
We can even afford to treat the White House and press corps to an ice cream social. What do you say? We’ll make sure there’s plenty of all your favorite flavors.
Scott, CEO of Dippin’ Dots
Hard to imagine that either of these two takes the “feud” too seriously but it looks like this whole thing could be water under the bridge.
Fisher isn’t the only CEO to warm up to the Trump team. Executives all over the country are sending positive signals that they fully anticipate a pro-growth economy under Donald Trump.Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
