Spicy out

Post by Turdacious » Fri Jul 21, 2017 4:22 pm

White House press secretary Sean Spicer has resigned after opposing President Donald Trump's appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as communications director, NBC has confirmed with two people familiar with the matter.

The New York Times first reported the news.

Earlier, a source close to the White House told NBC that Scaramucci met with Trump and it went well. In the meeting, Scaramucci was offered the role of communications director and accepted it, according to multiple reports.

When NBC asked its source whether Trump would change his mind, the person said the president's mind is made up.

But Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus and top adviser Steve Bannon had resisted the appointment, NBC reported Friday. It said the two were kept out of the loop on the decision.

I'd guess the opposite-- the GOP establishment really wants Priebus there. That said, if Sessions goes, the GOP establishment in the Senate will only confirm someone they're comfortable with.

Thank god they've finally hired a Goldman Sachs guy.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

I wish they'd let Anne Coulter, Laura Ingraham, and Tomi Lehren have a three way mud wrestle for the job.

The WSJ is twisting the knife.
Less than a month into his new job, White House press secretary Sean Spicer needed to keep his food and drink cold. He wanted a mini-fridge.

He dispatched a top aide to a nearby executive office building where junior research employees are crammed into a room, surviving on Lean Cuisine frozen lunches. Mr. Spicer wants your icebox, the aide said, according to people familiar with the incident. They refused to give it up.

So Mr. Spicer waited until sundown—after his young staffers had left—to take matters into his own hands. He was spotted by a fellow White House official lugging the icebox down the White House driveway after 8 p.m.
