On the morning of July 21, The New York Times reportedthat Sean Spicer has officially resigned as White House Press Secretary. Apparently, he was so upset about President Trump’s appointment of Anthony Scaramucci, a financier from New York, as communications director, that he up and left the job he already hadn’t been doing for months.
We were only afforded six quick months with Spicer behind the podium, but they were life-changing. The American public developed an affection for the little guy. He did so much…for comedians on Twitter. Spicer stumbled his way through his tenure as press secretary with such beautifully choreographed clumsiness; he’s truly the Buster Keaton of White House staff members, and he will be missed.
Here, we’ve gathered his finest moments. And by finest, we mean the opposite.
Sean Spicer has gifted us a veritable deluge of priceless comedic material in his time as White House Press Secretary.
Let’s take a walk down Spicey memory lane.
Spicer-Man’sfirst gaffe came mere hours after Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. Spicer ripped the plastic off his minty-fresh press secretary podium, then launched into a tirade refuting reports that the size of the crowds at Trump’s inauguration paled in comparison to those from Obama’s.
He looked the American public in the eye and told us the pictures we were seeing of patchy ground and empty streetswere false. He actually said that Donald Trump drew “the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.”
How adorable! This inspired the now-classic hashtag #SpicerFacts, and for that, we will be forever grateful.
The Hitler Oopsie
Remember when Dude Spice invoked Hitler (who everyone knows is like number one on the list of peeps you do not make comparisons to) to call out the seriousness of the actions of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad? But then he made areal oopsie and said that Hitler never used chemical weapons?*
What a guy!
*Hitler totally used chemical weapons. Loved them. Might have been his favorite type of weapon.
Accidental Distress Signal
Then there was that time Chai Spice Latt showed up at a press conference wearing his American flag pin upside-down, which, according to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, is a “signal of distress.” I’ll say! Maybe he was trying to send us a message. And we failed him.
He also managed to (jokingly) get called out for plagiarism by Beau Willimon, creator of the Netflix series,House of Cards, which uses the upside-down flag as their logo.
Password Not Protected
Spice Spice Baby was at it again when he seemingly tweeted out his password…twice.
Needless to say, Twitter had a field day. We rolled around in these tweets like a dog in a pile of some other dog’s poop.
