Everyone in Donald Trump‘s administration has their hot button issues.
Even Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer has something he’s been passionately fighting against: Dippin’ Dots, for some reason…
After he blatantly lied about Trump’s inauguration turnout, social media sleuths dug far back into the Spicer’s Twitter account, presumably to try to find more “alternative facts” — but instead found he REALLY has it out for the so-called “ice cream of the future!”
His disdain for the frozen dessert dated all the way back to 2010, when he wrote on Twitter:
Dippin dots is NOT the ice cream of the future

Spicer followed up with his hate for the makers of the miniature ice-cream spheres (that are flash-frozen by liquid nitrogen, FYI) with sporadic updates.
In 2011, Spicer thought he won the war by sharing a Wall Street Journal article about Dippin’ Dots filing for bankruptcy:
I think I have said this before but Dippin Dots are notthe ice cream of the future
├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ Sean Spicer (@seanspicer) September 22, 2011
But the feud didn’t exactly melt away — the ice cream brand was sold to a new owner in 2012 — thus, giving reason for Spicer to lose his cool.
The next tweet didn’t come until the 2015 during a Washington Nationals baseball game, when Spicer wrote:
Okay, Sean. We get it. Eating Dippin’ Dots doesn’t fit with your lifestyle — but just because your brain can’t handle a spoonful without freezing over doesn’t mean others can’t enjoy the frozen balls of deliciousness!
Guys, this is not a metaphor. He really can’t handle Dippin’ Dots.
Thankfully, the ice cream makers themselves caught wind of Spicer’s bizarre tirade today and gave an expertly icy response, tweeting:
Hopefully, someone at the White House prescribes the Press Secretary with a giant chill pill.
