Sean Spicer is one of the most talked-about men in the country right now. His career has been full of ups and downs. And up until recently, Spicer was serving as a White House Press Secretary, as well as acting White House Communications Director for the Donald Trump Presidency.
He has inspired a very famous series of sketches on Saturday Night Live, as well as inspiring thousands to create websites satirizing the loud, angry persona that was all over the news…
Sean Spicer Controversy
During this time he has come out with quite a few controversial statements in favor of this administration. His remarks have only fueled the war against media outlets, and Spicer’s press briefings have raised quite a few eyebrows. Here is one of them.
On Friday Spicer resigned his post as the White House press secretary after President Trump had appointed Anthony Scaramucci as the new communications director.
Mr. Trump offered Scaramucci the post on Friday morning. Spicer was then asked to stay on as press secretary who would then report to Scaramucci.
However, Mr. Spicer’s thoughts are that Scaramucci’s appointment will only make it more confusing for the general public.
With the amount of uncertainty surrounding the White House at the moment, Spicer though it would only muddy the waters further.
The New Press Secretary
The information available for the news outlets and the public so far says that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will become the press secretary in Spicer’s place.
Until now Sanders was Spicer’s highest ranking deputy, and it is not yet clear how well suited she is for the job. That will only be seen in a time when the press core of the White House returns to work as normal.
This resignation has caused turmoil in the administration which has not been doing so well in the past two weeks. They have certainly had a lot on their plate since last week Senate was discussing the Health Care bill which has not yet been approved.
The Health Care Bill
Reforming Health care has been on the agenda ever since Mr. Trump and Mr. Spicer started their respective duties, but it doesn’t seem like there is a viable solution in sight just yet.
Next week Donald Trump Jr. Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have to testify before Congress about their connections with Russia and Russian political force. This is another controversial topic, as the administration has denied any possible ties, pointing fingers anywhere but at themselves.
The outcome of these testimonies will be determined later in the year, but it will not be easy for this administration to regain the credibility it has lost with many people. However, those who support Mr. Trump’s way of leading, seem to be quite satisfied with the job he has done so far.
Scaramucci is from Long Island and was a hedge fund manager. Currently, he works at the Export-Import Bank and he has a good relationship with Mr. Trump.
It is clear, however, that Mr. Trump’s White House will be the same as before and Sean Spicer’s resignation will not change their attitude. Sometimes it can be tempting to just put on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones and ignore everything that is happening, but if you don’t like the way things are going in the country then it is important to get involved. Talk to your representatives, vote, volunteer.
