Is this a cry for help from the White House from the press secretary?
You nailed it. Period! https://t.co/AUmS1C222b

U.S. President Donald Trump's spokesman on Sunday tweeted his seeming support for the satirical The Onion video, which defined his role in the controversial administration as providing "the American public with robust and clearly articulated misinformation".
Even if he's not supporting it, he's clearly willing to take the piss out of himself. His use of 'period!' became one of the defining points of ridicule from his first press briefing.
Spicer's first day on the job ended poorly when he declared -- despite overwhelming evidence otherwise -- that Trump's was the "largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe".
The U.S. Holocaust museum issued a statement critical of Trump and Spicer leaving out Jews of their statements marking the World War II atrocity.
This statement from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is a pretty strong rebuke of the Trump administration: pic.twitter.com/w3ogGPb9gw
