Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, has officially turned in his resignation. The resignation came after President Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci, a 52 year old Harvard Law School graduate, to be the new communications director. This comes two months after former communications director Mike Dubke stepped down.
Sean Spicer adamantly opposed Scaramucci’s appointment. But did not get his way. Scaramucci has been a long time Trump supporter, and has been loyal. Scaramucci will not be at the podium regularly, that roll will be filled by Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Huckabee filled in for Spicer for a few weeks while he was away. She, in many people’s opinion, including mine, did a fantastic job.
I was not unhappy with Spicer to be honest. But it does scare me that he was highly recommended by current chief of staff Reince Priebus, and even after Trump was reportedly not going to hire Spicer, was pressured into it by Priebus. Trump tweeted this yesterday.
Sean Spicer is a wonderful person who took tremendous abuse from the Fake News Media – but his future is bright!
So the question is, who will be next? I can guarantee you that someone else will be on their way out in the semi-near future. Personally I’ve been wanting Reince Priebus to be fired for quite some time. He is a rhino Republican, and is almost certainly the White House leaker. It’s no secret that Priebus didnt support Trump throughout the election. So I’m positive he is the one that is the leaker. Reportedly Trump called Mr. Spicer a “good guy” who leaks only when told to by Mr. Priebus, per the failing New York Times. Also as I mentioned, Priebus is very close friends with Spicer, so you know he will be harboring resentment for Trump pushing Spicer out.
Another possibility is either National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster, or Senior Advisor Jared Kushner.
