Sean Spicer

Sean Spicer deserves his own thread since his press conferences are so entertaining.

Today's gem:

"Hitler didn't even sink to using chemical weapons."

Okay he did use chemical weapons in "the Holocaust Centers." But he "didn't drop them down . . . into the middle of the town."

I get what that idiot Spicer meant despite his ignorance and it pisses me off that dolts like Nancy Pelosi jump on it trying to make it some polarizing anti-Jewish thing. But seriously, Spicer is just a complete trainwreck in front of the press and I can't imagine he's going to be around by the end of the year.

I heard him say "Holocaust Centres" like they were shopping malls or something. What an uneducated dick.

It is anti-Jewish. If you think he isn't using dog-whistles to signal to those elements in the voter base, you're naive. He's not getting up there and speaking off the top of his head.

I think you give him way more credit then he deserves. The guy seems like an inarticulate simpleton every time he opens his mouth.

It's intentional. He's not the brightest person, but he's not as stupid as he appears, either. Pretty much exactly like George W. Bush -- not really an idiot, but plays folksy, or brash, or racist, or whatever, because that speaks to a certain voter base.

Watch him here, before he joined Trump's team:

When he was asked why the White House has recently diminished the number of daily press briefings in favor of off-camera gaggles, chief strategist Steve Bannon replied, "Sean got fatter."

Bannon, making the comment to a reporter for The Atlantic, was referring to White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who has been in the public eye less over the past few weeks. Bannon reportedly did not respond to follow-up questions from the Atlantic reporter.

Sean Spicer Out as Press Secretary
Spicer will lead the communications office while searching for his replacement at the briefing podium.

By Gabrielle Levy, Political Reporter | June 19, 2017, at 5:47 p.m.


White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will step back from giving reporters the daily press briefing and is searching for his replacement at the podium.

"We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation. As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office," White House officials said in a statement Monday.

Spicer will continue to fill the duties of the communications director – a post that has been empty since the end of May after the resignation of Mike Dubke.

There has been plenty of speculation about Spicer's job almost since the first day of the Trump administration, when he came before members of the media to defend the new president's claims about crowd sizes at his inauguration. The chatter has ramped up in recent weeks, as he gave over many of his briefing duties to his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The White House has reportedly not yet settled on a title for Spicer's new role, which is part of a broader shakeup meant to wipe the slate clean after a series of communications missteps.

According to Politico, Spicer and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus are interviewing candidates for the press secretary role. Among the candidates are said to be Laura Ingraham, the Fox News personality and a potential candidate to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and David Martosko, the editor of the Daily Mail, who met with senior White House strategist Steve Bannon last week.

Sanders has reportedly told people she does not want the job.

Kimberly Guilfoyle, a co-host of Fox News' "The Five," last month said she had conversations with the Trump administration about taking over the role, but apparently has not been formally interviewed.

The White House has not held an on-camera briefing since June 12.

Aaaannnd, it's finally official - Spicer is out. No doubt having Sarah Huckabee Sanders being a laughably worse fill-in for him finally pushed Trump to get a replacement - of course, one of his business buddies, Anthony Scaramucci.

:hs: SHS is now officially the Press Secretary. Spicer was "promoted" to Communications Director a few weeks ago, which is the position resigned from today. Scaramucci will take over as the Communications Director in August.

Yeah, I initially thought Scaramucci was going to fill some sort of dual role but it was made clear that Huckabee got a "promotion" to be the official press secretary .....for however long that lasts.
