On Friday, Sean Spicer announced his resignation as White House press secretary following the hiring of Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director, a move he allegedly disagreed with. According to the New York Times, Spicer “flatly rejected” a position subordinate to Scaramucci, who apparently has the support of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
“It’s been an honor & a privilege to serve [President Donald Trump] & this amazing country,” he tweeted Friday afternoon. “I will continue my service through August.”
Thus, Spicer severed his ties to the Trump administration. And Twitter had a lot to say about the severing ― from reminiscing over Melissa McCarthy’s epic impersonation to questioning what exactly he’d be willing to put in the Burn Book.
