#SpicerSpinsMoviePlots is a Twitter hashtag used to mock the way White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer offers a positive viewpoint on bad news surrounding the administration of President Donald Trump during his press conferences by offering positive viewpoints on famous characters and scenes from popular films.


On April 5th, 2017, @2GirlsAndATag[1] tweeted "Sean can spin any Press Briefing to the GOP's favor. How about movies? Let's play… #SpicerSpinsMoviePlots via @HashtagRoundup." The tweet gained modest spread, but the hashtag quickly began to trend on Twitter.
