Sean Spicer Resigns


"Sean Spicer, the White Huse press secretary, resigned on Friday morning, telling President Trump he vehemently disagreed with the appointment of the New York financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

Mr. Trump offered Mr. Scaramucci the job at 10 a.m. The president requested that Mr. Spicer stay on, but Mr. Spicer told Mr. Trump that he believed the appointment was a major mistake, according to a person with direct knowledge of the exchange."

NOTE:   Scaramucci began his career at Goldman Sachs.

How many Goldman Sachs vultures are now in Donald "I'm Gonna Drain The Swamp" Trump's administration?

This is Scaramucci BEFORE he decided to work for Donald Trump and when he had a conscience:

“I don’t like the way he talks about women, I don’t like the way he talks about our friend Megyn Kelly. And you know what, the politicians don’t want to go at Trump because he’s got a big mouth and because [they’re] afraid he’s going to light them up on Fox News and all these other places. 

But I’m not a politician. Bring it. You’re an inherited money dude from Queens County. Bring it, Donald.”

Good Question, why not ask Hillary?

Hillary Clinton isn't the president, F.Y.D. Trump is, and he's filling the swamp, not draining it.

Your comment makes zero sense, but you're a Comrade Trump supporter, so we're not surprised.

what a bummer! spicey was the star of the show and mccarthy's impression of him was way, way better than baldwin's trump impression.

Made perfect sense to me.&

Apparently in some alternate reality that only Trumpinistas can see, HRC won. It's a happy land where the popular vote counts for something. And they're happy too because the Republican Congress is busy doing investigation after investigation of HRC.

Oh yeah, the comment I was going to make. I wonder how it felt for Spicer to tell Trump "You're wrong!" I added the exclamation point as a little poetic license.

Why bless your heart, of course it did.

Kevin R.: "I bet Melissa McCarthy haz a sad."

Scaramucci isn't as much of a character as Spicey was.

Scaramuccia (literally "little skirmisher"), also known as Scaramouche or Scaramouch, is a stock clown character of the Italian commedia dell'arte. The role combined characteristics of the zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman). Usually attired in black Spanish dress and burlesquing a don, he was often beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice.

But she could have fun with that!

A bit of sanity in this insane week:

Sean Hannity was schedule to receive the William F. Buckley Excellence in Media Award until Buckley's son, Christopher, stepped in a talked whomever what nuts to choose Hannity to withdraw his name.

William F. Buckley would have thrown up on Hannity had his name been attached to any award for that hack and Trump suck-up.

I would be surprised if the reason Trump replaced Spicer did not have something to do with him being portrayed on SNL by a woman.
