Ever hear of Sean Spicer?
He does White House “communications”.
He looked like a circus act on that podium, “briefing” the White House Press: “Come see the dancing freak”! I’d imagine Trump – or one of his henchmen whipping poor Sean on and off that stage then forcing him into his cage with a cane and a stool. It has to be the most miserable job on the planet: “defending” the indefensible. Trump’s constant barrage of tweets, falsehoods, half truths, outright lies, erratic behaviour, crazy utterances and abuse simply cannot be “communicated” or “explained” to rational functioning adults in any way shape or form. To even try, to even pretend that it is remotely possibly to professionally “communicate” Trump’s meaning, intent and/or policies one has to be sniffing huge amounts of glue.
Sean Spicer tried.
It became an epic fail.
WASHINGTON — Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned Friday after telling President Trump he vehemently disagreed with his appointment of Anthony Scaramucci, a New York financier, as his new communications director. After offering Mr. Scaramucci the job on Friday morning, Mr. Trump asked Mr. Spicer to stay on as press secretary, reporting to Mr. Scaramucci. But Mr. Spicer rejected the offer, expressing his belief that Mr. Scaramucci’s hiring would add to the confusion and uncertainty already engulfing the White House, according to two people with direct knowledge of the exchange.
Yes, you read that right, Donald J. Trump, “the man of the people” who’s standing shoulder to shoulder with working class America… hired yet another “financier”.
(Who, no doubt, also has the interests of the common man at heart eds.)
In a tweet late Friday, Mr. Trump also called Mr. Spicer “a wonderful person who took tremendous abuse from the Fake News Media – but his future is bright!”
I hope Sean switches sides.
He should write a tell-all book, give loads of interviews and reveal the inner workings of this unhinged White House with a total lunatic in charge.
Mr. Spicer’s departure ends an excruciating saga even for a highly factionalized White House riven with intrigue. He had hoped to last a year as press secretary. He quit after six months and a day.
Another Trump Administration success story.
The end came in operatic fashion, befitting Mr. Scaramucci’s namesake — a stock character in Italian musical theater. As Mr. Scaramucci made his big entrance, Mr. Spicer exited quietly, disheartened that the president never quite appreciated his performance.
We love you, Sean!
