As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Sean Spicer Resigns as White House Press Secretary

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Friday resigned following the appointment of financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

According to Politico, Scaramucci had the support of Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell and was opposed by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Spicer.

The appointment seems a major blow to Priebus. Priebus and Spicer are extremely close and had for years run the Republican National Committee together, with Priebus and its chief and Spicer as director of communications. President Trump has repeatedly expressed frustration with Priebus to associates, but has so far kept him on.

Scaramucci has served as a TV surrogate for Trump and has long backed the president. With Spicer’s departure, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was named White House press secretary.

  1. Draining the swamp, one alligator at a time.
    New blood, new ideas, sounds great.
    We’ll miss The Spiceman, but the Church Lady is a humdinger of a press spokesperson.

  2. Trump is losing control. This may be the start of an exodus. Trump is responding and not taking action. His name in the me in the media seems always linked to Russia. He should have gone after the Clintons. He should take the offensive. Although now it may be too late.

    • You may be right, but there is another view – he’s finally taking charge of his Presidency from the traditional Repubs who are giving him nothing. He reached out to them, they turned away.
      Let him put his own people in the WH, let’s see what happens.

    • The MSM wanted Spicer gone and now he’s gone…they wanted Sessions to recuse himself and he recused himself…they wanted a Special Counsel and they got it, etc. etc.

      The Republicans might as well just go back to being the minority party…they’re too afraid of their own shadow to be in power.

      • Very true. Now we have a strong, courageous President who is moving us forward, lowering the unemployment rate, re-establishing healthy relationships with our allies, whose policies are boosting the stock market to record highs, who is reducing of illegal immigrants by 65-70 percent, honoring our military and demanding that DOD gets the resources they need to do the job demanded of them, saying NO to the globalists who want to destroy our Constitutional Republic, sending strong warnings to North Korea, etc etc etc. Yet, Trump is trapped, tactically, with the confused, spineless, useless Ryan and McConnell who allow themselves to get pushed around like rag dolls by the village idiots in the Democrat party. This has got to get fixed.
