White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Resigns
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who often appeared embattled, has formally resigned.
Spicer notified President Trump that he strongly disagreed with the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director. Scaramucci was offered the position just hours prior to the news leaking of Spicer’s resignation. Spicer told Trump that the appointment was a major mistake, according to a source obtained by the NYTimes.
Spicer has endured an extreme amount of unfair criticism from mainstream opponents, particularly that of CNN and even Saturday Night Live, who has continually made Spicer the butt of skit jokes. Actress Melissa McCarthy often played Spicer’s character, painting him as an opponent of free press.
But some viewed Spicer as a breath of fresh air in the way that he seemed to battle back a media that has based most of its 2017 storylines on opposing his former boss and current President, Donald Trump.
It has been rumored for some time that Spicer and President Trump didn’t get along too well.
Reince Priebus, the former Republican Party chairman, was the one who brought Spicer in, so today’s news might cause more waves than just the loss of a press secretary.
We will update this post as more news breaks.
