Sean Spicer has resigned in his position as White House Press Secretary.
The scoop comes via the New York Times:
Sean Spicer, the White House 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 person with direct knowledge of the exchange.
We reported this morning that Anthony Scaramucci was going to accept the new job as communications director. It looks like that news is official.
This comes as yet another huge shakeup to a young White House.
Let’s hope the new communications team Trump puts in place will be better able to deflect media attacks.
