Sean Spicer Resigns As Trump's Press Secretary

Spicey out.

After a six-month tenure, Sean Spicer has resigned his position as the White House Press Secretary. I'm gonna be honest, my first thought was, "Noooo, does this mean no more Spicey SNL bits from Melissa McCarthy?" ...I'm sure Saturday Night Live writers are going to have a field day with this one.

Now, you may be asking... why the heck did Sean Spicer resign? You may have noticed that Spicer hasn't been in the public eye as much recently, and that's because he had assumed the role of both press secretary and communications director. Well, today it was announced that Anthony Scaramucci, a New York financer, would be taking over that role, of course by the appointment of President Trump. He was offered the job this morning.

According to sources close to the White House, Spicer very much disagreed with and was very upset with Scaramucci's hiring, telling President Trump that it was a "huge mistake". There was a White House meeting that took place this morning where Scaramucci's hiring was to be announced. Spicer decided to resign right before the meeting.

In a way, I kind of feel bad for Sean Spicer. Sure, we all like to laugh and make jokes when we see those "Spicey" skits on Saturday nights, but in the end he had a really difficult job. Let's not forget, he was Donald Trump's press secretary. Meaning he had to more or less defend and explain some of Donald Trump's choices not only when it came to policy, but also his controversial statements as well, which would be no walk in the park for anyone.

Best of luck to you, Sean Spicer. We'll see how this whole thing unfolds, and if Trump's selection of Anthony Scaramucci really is a big mistake.

Spicer Says Press Will Decide Where Trump Donates His Salary

Can you say, "Planned Parenthood"?

During the election campaign, Donald Trump insisted that he would not accept a salary if he were elected. Once he won the presidency, he again repeated the claim.

However, according to federal law, the president must be given monthly payments totaling at $400,000. Therefore, instead of keeping the money he is required to be paid, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that Trump will donate his salary at the end of the year to a charity.

The charity has not yet been decided, so Spicer called on journalists to help determine where the donation should go at the end of the year.

"The way that we can avoid scrutiny is to let the press corps determine where it should go," Spicer said on the Monday, March 13 briefing, resulting in laughs from the press.

There has been no remark or proof of this donation from President Trump yet.

Journalists are taking up Spicer's offer on Twitter and are proposing possible charities, such as Planned Parenthood, Fisher House, Committee to Protect Journalists, and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

Trump Says We Can't Make Mistakes Before Making A Mistake

"I don't make mistakes."

This is such a classic Trump moment.

Not one that will be remembered forever, but one that we will cherish now and is so perfectly him. He is going on and on about how he does everything live and how he doesn't make mistakes, then he goes on to immediately make a mistake by calling the guy next to him by the wrong name. Perfect.

To the credit of "Ken" (see: Chuck), he plays it off beautifully.

Maybe there is a reason everyone doesn't do it your way, Donald.

Gronk Crashes Sean Spicer's Press Briefing

We live in Gronk's world.

I guess we were so close to being able to say "Assistant White House Press Secretary Rob Gronkowski" for the day.

The actual press secretary, Sean Spicer, was doing a press briefing when the New England Patriots tight end came out and offered Spicer a hand in help. The Patriots are visiting the White House today to celebrate their Super Bowl LI victory.

Regardless of whether or not you love Gronk, or the Patriots, I can agree with Spicer here when he says "That was awesome."

And honestly, let's face it. The Trump administration may be in charge here. The Kim dynasty may be heading North Korea. And Theresa May may be heading England as the prime minister.

But we live in Gronk's world.

Let's just recap all of the headlines Gronk has made within the past month or so.

First there was him crashing WWE events and helping old teammate and good friend Mojo Rawley (real name Dean Muhtadi) at WrestleMania 33, and then again at a recent Smackdown Live.

So maybe you'd think Gronk could be a wrestler after his NFL career is over.

But then again, maybe he'd make a good rapper?

Well...maybe not. But would anyone try to stop him? And would anyone be successful in trying to prevent New Englanders from getting to said songs produced by Gronk? I highly doubt it.

But if there's one thing Gronk does best, it's party. Oh, and not wear a shirt of course.

Because if Rob Gronkowski was the leader of the world, or at least President of the U.S., partying would be mandatory and shirts would be optional (guess that's saying "screw you no shirt, no shoes, no service.")

Any calls for Gronk in the 2020 Presidential Election yet?

Sean Spicer Seriously Fucked Up And Twitter Went To Town

You know it's bad when God tweets about it.

U.S. Press Secretary Sean Spicer made some huge mistakes. Bigly. But calling concentration camps "Holocaust centers" and saying Hitler didn't use chemical weapons--well, not on his own people (German Jews were an exception, apparently) is less of a slip up and more antisemitism. I mean, it's bad enough when the Anne Frank Center demanded someone fire Spencer--but it was far from the only firing demand.

Spicer literally has one job. One. Job.

But hey, at least there might be hope for Spicer's career.

OK, but you know it's bad when God had something to say about it.

A handful of people recalled some other recent (and major) PR fuck-ups. Oh, and there was lots of beer holding.

Or the occasional product placement.

But was it really Spicer doing the talking?

Maybe that wheel is a decent investment. At least we can be prepared.

But nothing could prepare us for this image. Nothing.

Costa Rica President Eats Wasp During Press Briefing

One way to get gains.

During a press briefing, Costa Rica's president, Luis Guillermo Solis Rivera, encountered a wasp...flying right into face. Unraveled, he continued his speech even as the WASP FLEW IN HIS MOUTH. He proceeded to swallow the wasp and then tell everyone about it. What a savage!

I guess you have to get your protein one way or another...
