Epic lying hypocrisy. Sean Spicer says Trump is not fear mongering then procedes to fear monger.

Trump said he knows more about terrorist threats than anyone. Fear mongering.
Reporter: Should the terror threat be elevated and an alert issued?
Spicer: We just need to be ready for any future threat. Fear mongering again.
Taking advantage of our innate human fear of flight, say from a fire, and using it to make us fearful is fear mongering.
Fear mongering is bullying. It is also a tool fascists use to control the masses.
