SPICY OUT: Sean Spicer Calls It Quits As White House Press Secretary
Alas, Sean "alternative facts" Spicer has resigned as the White House press secretary effective immediately.
It was learned that Spicer had left his post after he tweeted that he would continue to serve through August, noting it’s been “an honor & a privilege” to work under Donald Trump....
It was reported that Spicer resigned after he was told that Trump loyalist and family friend Anthony Scaramucci was named White House communications director. When Spicer, a loyal employee who had lied through his teeth about everything from crowd sizes to travel bans to widespread voter fraud to claims that President Obama ordered wiretapping, expressed his objection to the appointment of Scaramucci Trump said that he was going to hire him anyway.
Sean, suffering the one final indignity, announced his intention to leave his role after that.
Scaramucci then went on to deliver Friday afternoon’s press briefing announcing that deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will take over Spicer’s role.
I think in the end Melissa McCarthy's imitation of Spicer on Saturday Night Live will be missed more than Spicer.
