Sean Spicer Resigns as Press Secretary

Several major media outlets reported on Friday that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned after Anthony Scarmucci was named as White House communications director and Spicer himself confirmed the move in a tweet, stating that, “It’s been an honor & a privilege to serve @POTUS @realDonaldTrump & this amazing country.” In the tweet, Spicer said that he will be continuing through August:

The resignation comes after weeks of rumors that Spicer, as well as former RNC head and now WH chief of staff Reince Priebus were on their way out. Spicer worked for the RNC under Spicer.

The NY Times reported that Spicer “vehemently disagreed” with the appointment of Scarmucci, a New York financier who is a senior vice president at the U.S. Export-Import Bank and supporter of the president.

While Spicer is close to White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, Priebus told The Associated Press that he supports Scaramucci “100 percent,” according to FOX News.

“We go back a long, long way and are very good friends,” Priebus said of Scaramucci. “All good here.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the deputy press secretary who has been holding many of the daily press briefings the past few weeks, will assume the Spicer’s role for now.

Today’s announcement should give at least a temporary reprieve from the media’s Trump-Russia narrative obsession.
