Sean Spicer has a career of being a political communication expert. He has worked in this capacity for the House Government Reform Committee, Republican Conference of the US House, National Republican Congressional Committee, House Budget Committee and most recently as the White House Press Secretary and White House Director of Communications. One would think that with all of this experience, he would know how to properly conduct a press conference and how to speak for someone else, such as the President of the United States. However, in the first 6-months as the White House Press Secretary, he made more errors than a bush league baseball team taking the field for the very first time. It’s a wonder Trump, who doesn’t deal well with incompetence, hadn’t fired Spicer. Most likely seeing the writing on the wall, Spicer resigned yesterday.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned Friday in a decision tied to the hiring of new Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, marking a major shakeup in the president’s press shop at an already tumultuous time.
In a swift set of developments, former deputy Sarah Huckabee Sanders was announced as Spicer’s replacement.
And Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, addressed reporters from the briefing podium in his new capacity as communications director.
It’s comforting to see that Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been named as the new White House Press Secretary. Prior to this, she served as the Deputy White House Press Secretary and on several occasions handled White House press briefings instead of Spice and she did an excellent job. She is the daughter of former Arkansas Governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. In the briefings she conducted, she remained fully composed in the face of liberal hostility and opposition, a quality that Spicer often lacked.
