It was almost business as usual during the White House Press briefing in 2016. That is until reporters and people watching the briefing on the internet realized White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, wore his American flag pin upside down. Immediately the internet had a lot of questions: Is Spicer trying to tell us something? Did he recently binge watch Stranger Things? Does he finally understand that every jobs report has always been real? See some of the best reactions ahead.
One reporter asked if it was a distress call.
Sean Spicer's flag pin was just upside down.

Is Sean Spicer signalling that he is in distress? Is he waiting for someone to rescue him? https://t.co/dfXoAGgbTb
