Sean Spicer says Obama administration was responsible for Michael Flynn?s vetting
White House press secretary Sean Spicer attempted Thursday to shift blame to the Obama administration for its role in vetting retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the national security adviser dismissed by President Trump. Spicer argued that the Trump transition team didn?t vet Flynn?s appointment because he already held a security clearance at the time. ?My only point is that when Gen. Flynn came into the White House, he had an active security clearance that was issued during the Obama administration with all the information that?s being discussed that occurred in 2015,? Spicer said at the daily press briefing.

The little device that adds Alexa to any Android phone is on sale for 50% off

Even still, there?s only one smartphone out there with official access to Alexa ? wouldn?t it be cool if every smartphone had Alexa baked in?
We?re not sure that will ever be the case, but here?s the good news: the ZeroTouch Air Vent Car Mount and the ZeroTouch Dashboard Car Mount will add Alexa to any Android phone while you?re in the car, and both models are on sale on Amazon right now. Both models are on sale for 50%, but only for a short amount of time.
