Sean Spicer Resigns After Trump Appoints Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director

Sean Spicer
White House press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned, just six months after holding the job, according to White House sources. Spicer made his decision after President Donald Trump appointed long-time loyalist Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director. Trump made his decision to hire Scaramucci last night, confirming his decision on Friday morning despite protests from some in the administration. Spicer, a career political spokesperson, was deeply opposed to the idea and resigned in protest to Trump’s decision.  After White House communications director Mike Dubke resigned in May, Spicer tried to position himself as the replacement. That effort failed, as Trump decided to select a Trump loyalist as a successor. White House reporters were asked to clear the hallways of the press area while Spicer met with press staff in his office following the decision. Laughing and clapping was heard coming out of the room. Trump’s decision marks a big shakeup in the communications office that has struggled to effectively combat the media. Spicer’s six-month career was beset by controversy, as he struggled to battle the mainstream media onslaught of hostility against the young Trump administration. Saturday Night Live mocked Spicer’s efforts by featuring actress Melissa McCarthy as a parody of the press
