Why Did Sean Spicer Resign Today?
Sean Spicer is out as Press Secretary.
Melissa McCarthy is gonna be so bummed.
So what was it? The constant humiliation? Having Donald Trump repeatedly throw him under the bus? Being forced to lie and cover for the White House over and over? Is it because Sarah Huckabee Sanders has essentially taken over his role?
Nope. What Sean Spicer just couldn’t bear was having Anthony Scaramucci as not only Communications Director, but a Communications Director who wouldn’t have to report directly to him.
So this new communications director is apparently so bad that working for him would be worse than having been already made to lie every day. https://t.co/Xb82hAEXJi— Jason Kander (@JasonKander) July 21, 2017
Apparently, hiring Scaramucci — a longtime supporter and an investment banker with no actual experience as a communications person in a White House that’s never needed an experienced communications person more — is also a signal to Reince Priebus to get the hell out, too.
Spicer was telling folks last night he would resign if Scaramucci was hired. Said he didn't think Scaramucci could do the job. -source close— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) July 21, 2017
I'm told Spicer is "really upset" but was in the room as Reince introduced Scaramucci as new comms director and gave him round of applause.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) July 21, 2017
I hope tarnishing your credibility and your career was worth the six-month gig, Sean. I look forward to six months of Scaramucci’s lying gibberish before he resigns, too.
