Sean Spicer is proof enough that the powerful Cancel Culture machine we keep hearing about needs some fine-tuning. This guy got himself a national profile by lying to our faces as part of a sadistic ritual ceremony in the White House Briefing Room and was rewarded for his work with a Harvard fellowship, an Emmys cameo courtesy of Stephen Colbert, and a spot on Dancing With The Stars.
