Trump White House Implodes: Spokesman Sean Spicer Quits in Protest
Donald Trump’s White House is experiencing unprecedented meltdown. With so many investigations and failure of the communications’ team to control a runaway Trump, it is no surprise that spokesman Sean Spicer finally threw in the towel.
Sean Spicer announced a few minutes ago that he would resign.
The final straw for Spicer came when the White House revealed this morning that President Trump has offer the position of Communications Director to Wall Street financier and long-time Trump campaign fundraiser, Anthony Scaramucci.
According to White House sources, Anthony Scaramucci accepted the position.
Spicer just tweeted the following.

Spicer argued vehemently against the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci, even going as far as meeting with Vice President Mike Pence. When he lost the argument, he felt the only option was for him to resign.
The resignation ends one of the most tumultuous and troubled tenures any White House Press Secretary has had to endure.
Throughout his term, Spicer repeatedly faced uncomfortable situations trying to defend President Trump whose penchant to undercut his spokes people bothers on idiocy.
Besides holding the position of Press Secretary, Sean Spicer was also the Communications Director throughout his short tenure.
He was responsible for responding to daily barrage of news reports especially about investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections, Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russians, Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian lawyer, Trump’s meeting with Putin at the G8 meeting in Germany and many more.
Members of the White House staff, though very upset at the resignation, appear resigned to the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci who sources say was introduced to the staff earlier today by Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus.
Reince Priebus who is known to have a poor relationship with Anthony Scaramucci said he welcomed the appointment “100%.”
“We go back a long way and are very good friends,” Priebus said. “All good here.”
Experts believe Reince Priebus will not last long in that position following this recent appointment.
Spicer was named Trump’s press secretary in December 2016. Before that, he worked as chief strategist and communications director for the Republican National Committee (RNC), a group led by current White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus.
