White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, quits

White House Press Secreatry Sean Spicer
White
House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has quit, reportedly in protest at a shake-up
of the communications team.
Mr
Spicer stepped down because he was unhappy with President Donald Trump’s
appointment of a new communications director, reports the New York Times.
Combative
Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been picked for the role that Mr
Spicer partially filled.

Mr
Spicer’s press briefings were a cable news hit, but he withdrew from camera in
recent weeks.
According
to BBC, the shake-up comes as the White House faces inquiries into alleged
Russian meddling in last year’s US presidential election and whether Mr Trump’s
campaign team colluded with Moscow.
The
New York Times reports that 45-year-old Mr Spicer “vehemently”
disagreed with the appointment of Mr Scaramucci, which he believed to be a
“major mistake”.
The
search for a new appointment began after Mike Dubke resigned from the
communications director job in May.
Mr
Spicer has been serving as both press secretary and communications director
since Mr Dubke’s exit.
On
day one in January, Mr Spicer set the tone of his relationship with the press
by bursting into the briefing room to berate journalists for their reporting of
crowd numbers at President Trump’s inauguration.
His
proclivity for gaffes and garbling of his words, as well as making debatable
assertions, soon saw Mr Spicer’s name trending on Twitter.
He
was mercilessly lampooned on the topical comedy show Saturday Night Live, where
Melissa McCarthy played him as a gum-chewing, loud-mouthed thug who brandished
his lectern at reporters.
Mr
Spicer became something of a punchline when he reportedly sought refuge by a
hedgerow on the White House grounds to evade reporters’ questions on the night
Mr Trump fired the FBI director in May.
Mr
Scaramucci, who has no previous experience in communications roles, is
currently senior vice-president of the Export-Import Bank, a US government
agency which guarantees loans for foreign buyers of American exports.
