I feel sorry for Sean Spicer for a number of reasons. And those reasons include, but are not limited to:
- Having arguably the worst job in America.
- His last name is Spicer.
- Being so overwhelmed wth life he forgot HITLER used chemical weapons. Could you imagine being that exhausted.
- He is now synonymous with ineptitude.
- You can’t look at him without thinking of Melissa McCarthy.
- His general resemblance to a potato.
But it looks like luck may finally be breaking in Spicey Boy’s favor, as multiple reports indicate that he has been put out of misery and removed from his position of White House secretary.
According to the Washington Post, Spicer may be stepping down from the press room podium for a more behind-the-scenes role in the White House:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer is expected to transition to a more behind-the-scenes role overseeing communications strategy, part of a broader overhaul of the administration’s most public-facing operation that has long been the subject of President Trump’s ire and criticism.
Spicer’s anticipated move away from the briefing-room podium, confirmed by a senior White House official, comes amid weeks of Trump’s frustration with his communications team, and after the White House had made overtures to a range of Republicans about taking jobs within the West Wing press operation.
“We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a White House spokeswoman, said in a statement. “As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office.”
Frankly, it’s been a long time coming for Spicer, who was doomed from the beginning. Defending the President’s incoherent vitriol is difficult enough, and it’s even more difficult when you have a penchant for sticking your foot in your mouth like Spicer does.
Honestly, though, I’m happy for Spicer. Am I glad that he’s no longer in the crosshairs of the American media? Sure.
But I’m mainly happy for him because of the memes it gave us.
