Sean Spicer Accuses Dems of ‘Playing Political Games’ with Cabinet Confirmation Votes

‘Stop playing political games with the core functions of government and allow President Trump’s unquestionably qualified and talented group of nominees to get to work on behalf of the American people’

EXCERPT:

SPICER: "It is important to note that at this point in 2009 President Obama had seven of his nominees confirmed on day one and five more in the first week. As it stands today, we have two. Democrats even held that the confirmation of CIA director Mike Pompeo needlessly leaving one of our most important national security agencies without its top leader on day one. It's time for Senate Democrats to stop playing political games with the core functions of government and to allow President Trump's unquestionably qualified and talented group of cabinet nominees to get to work on behalf of the American people."
