Sean Spicer Resigns As White House Press Secretary: Report
His messaging often conflicted with Trump’s.
By Paige Lavender

Sean Spicer resigned from his role as the White House press secretary on Friday, The New York Times reports.

Spicer’s messaging frequently clashed with that of President Donald Trump. Trump most recently contradicted Spicer’s Jan. 31 explanation that the president’s controversial executive order on immigration was not a “ban.”

“I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” Trump tweeted on June 5, days after a major attack in London prompted him to renew his call for the Supreme Court to reinstate the order to bar citizens of six majority-Muslim countries from traveling to the U.S.

Spicer’s tenure was marred with questionable moments, including a struggle with White House messaging on the firing of FBI Director James Comey on May 9. At one point, Spicer hid among some bushes to avoid answering journalists’ questions about Comey’s firing.

CNN reported the next day that Trump and his team had monitored deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders’ performance at the White House daily press briefing, where she filled in while Spicer fulfilled his U.S. Navy Reserve duty.

Spicer was tapped to be Trump’s press secretary in December 2016. Before that, he worked as chief strategist and communications director for the Republican National Committee.

He had a rocky start to his run as press secretary when on Jan. 21, one day after Trump’s inauguration, he held a last-minute press briefing in which he ripped the media for accurately reporting that Trump had fewer people attend his swearing-in than former President Barack Obama did in 2009. He accused members of the media of engaging in “deliberately false reporting” and refused to take questions.

Spicer’s war with the media continued throughout his time in the White House press office. In February, he blocked several news outlets, including CNN and The New York Times, from attending an off-camera press briefing. In March, he was criticized for telling senior journalist April Ryan to stop shaking her head.

In April, Spicer claimed Nazi leader Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons. Spicer went on to refer to the gas chambers used to kill millions of Jews as “Holocaust centers.” He later sent a clarification on his remarks that he revised three separate times.

Spicer used his position to spread falsehoods and repeat unverified claims made by Trump, including accusations of widespread voter fraud and claims that former President Barack Obama had ordered wiretapping of Trump’s team during the 2016 presidential election.

Spicer was famously portrayed by actress Melissa McCarthy on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” This bothered Trump, who didn’t like that a male member of his staff was being portrayed by a woman, according to Politico.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

Wonder if he resigned or was pushed out. Maybe he decided it was time to try to recapture a modicum of self respect that would never be found working for Trump.

Not a problem with Spicer gone. Trump still has 2 pathological liars / distorters in Conway & Huckabee Sanders. They're probably more a better glove & hand fit than Spicer.

"The Torture Never Stops"

Flies all green 'n buzzin' in his dungeon of despair
Prisoners grumble and piss their clothes and scratch their matted hair
A tiny light from a window hole a hundred yards away
Is all they ever get to know about the regular life in the day;
An' it stinks so bad the stones been chokin'
'N weepin' greenish drops
In the room where the giant fire puffer works
'N the torture never stops
The torture never stops

Slime 'n rot, rats 'n snot 'n vomit on the floor
Fifty ugly soldiers, man, holdin' spears by the iron door
Knives 'n spikes 'n guns 'n the likes of every tool of pain
An' a sinister midget with a bucket an' a mop where the blood goes down the drain;

An' it stinks so bad the stones been chokin'
'N weepin' greenish drops
In the room where the giant fire puffer works
'N the torture never stops
The torture never stops
The torture
The torture
The torture never stops.

Flies all green 'n buzzin' in his dungeon of despair
An evil prince eats a steamin' pig in a chamber right near there
He eats the snouts 'n the trotters first
The loin's 'n the groin's is soon dispersed
His carvin' style is well rehearsed
He stands and shouts
All men be cursed
All men be cursed
All men be cursed
All men be cursed
And disagree, well no-one durst
He's the best of course of all the worst
Some wrong been done, he done it first

(Well, well) An' he stinks so bad, his bones been chokin'
(Yeah) 'N weepin' greenish drops,
(Well) In the night of the iron sausage,
(Well) Where the torture never stops
The torture never stops
The torture
The torture
The torture never stops.

Flies all green 'n buzzin' in his dungeon of despair
Who are all those people that he's locked away up there
Are they crazy?,
Are they sainted?
Are they zeros someone painted?,
It has never been explained since at first it was created
But a dungeon like a sin
Requires naught but lockin' in
Of everything that's ever been
Look at hers
Look at him
That's what's the deal we're dealing in
That's what's the deal we're dealing in
That's what's the deal we're dealing in
That's what's the deal we're dealing in

I feel a little bad for the guy. He was put in some horrible situations, some impossible situations and he had a job to do. We've all had to carry some uncomfortable water for somebody else haven't we?

Anyway the Melissa McCarthy SNL stuff made everything worth it!

I hope he lands on his feet somewhere and finds something a little less stressful, less conflicting and less controversial. I'm sure he is glad to be out.

He's a lying, unprincipled, anti-American treasonous sack of weasel jizz, entrusted with one of the highest offices in the greatest democracy in history and pissed all over it for personal aggrandizement at the real cost of the quality of American and worldwide life like Conway, Sessions, Huckabee Sanders, Manafort, everyone on the Trump payroll.. screw them all.

It is a bit of a shame rmack, but I have to say, Your assessment is on the money. I have done a good bit of searching, and I have not been able to find one redeeming value as a human being in even one person in the Trump administrations or circle of assosiates. Usually I can usually find something in Folks to respect, hard work, integrity etc or usually I can respect a parent, for the commitment and effort they put in, but what's to respect here, "people" who teach greed, lying, self centeredness, being unconcerned about anyone or anything, but Yourself, including the world we live in? That the ONLY things that matter are personal pleasure, money and power? To behave in a completely egotistical and deviously maniacal way? These "qualities" in "people" are the main reason our country and the world in genetal is in the shape it's in. I do however, find it a very interesting phenomenon, how all these smaller piles of sh!t are drawn into and orbit around the big orange pile sh!t..........Peace.........joe

Imagine working for this White House as the person who has to go out and try to explain or try and answer all the craziness. It has to be the toughest job in politics right now, maybe ever.

I've thought about that point several times.

The thing is that it's a choice that his staff has chosen. These are jobs that probably come with good pay and benefits. Throw in the power and ego, and these staff members are willing to go along for the ride w/out regard for truth & are willing to throw away self respect and principle to work for someone who admires & shares traits with the likes of Putin or Kim Jong-un.

I guess it takes a "special" type that is willing to work in the WH for someone like Trump.

However, there seems to be quite a supply of bottom feeders more than willing to get up off their knees, wipe Trump's dribble off their chins, and go out and do just that. They could go out and get real jobs with honor and dignity, but choose to lie with a straight face for personal gain and fame.

They are simply a pack of toadies that jumped on the bandwagon lurching off the rails on the rightwing side of the tracks, keeping their Caesar fat and happy while they connive on their plans for total domination , the whole crew of the Christian Right 90s movement having an ultra-right feeding frenzy that will eventually nauseate all but the most extreme hardcore cons.

They want a starspangled version of Sharia Law.

They would not like the comparison but it is fascinating how similar they are to Muslims. They are anti-education, anti-free thought, anti-women, anti-racial and gender tolerance, anti-sharing, anti-environment, anti-diplomacy anti-world. They ought to just team up with the Middle East if they want a strict orthodox clampdown hardliner world.

What is up with these folks? How do you get so darn twisted up that common decency and reason become a threat? To where your main motivations are fear, suspicion, and hostility? Has life really been that bad in the USA over the last few decades? Seems to have been a pretty good couple centuries, other than the occasional war, give or take a depression or two. My life has been ok so far, through all the administrations, left or right.

This is the first presidency I have seen that just flat out stinks and appears to be a direct threat to the nation.

This new gang of ubercons, in a lot of ways they go counter to the precepts of their own faith, which also makes them anti-Christ.
Antichrist.

I thought he was a good guy. I liked it that he tried to answer questions from the press in an honest manner, not with the usual politico speak. He seemed like an honest guy trying to do a good job.

His successor seems like a city slicker. Don't know anything about him, but he seems a little cocky coming out of the gate. I guess when we think of press we think of the icons we have enjoyed so much like Tom Brokaw, or Dan Rather etc. who were eloquent, inquisitive, fact finding, and conscience driven truthers. That's what we expect, and reporters have never let any Washingtonian have an easy time, so a White House Press Secretary, not an easy job for sure.

It may take a good year for Trump to figure out who he wants on his team and who he doesn't. There may be more changes coming. He wants an effective team. He demands action and accountability, which is why he likes the military, they get things done, failure is no option for them and it won't be for him either. He went to Washington with a lot of plans, big plans, and he intends to deliver on his promises, no matter what he needs to do to make that happen. There is no room for fence sitters in that administration.
