The life cycle of a Trump press secretary- part tres

 

Well it happened, White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigned today. Honestly, this has to be the greatest day in his and his family’s life. He finally woke-up, spoke-up, and quit drinking the Kool-Aid. The question he needs to ask himself is why it took him seven months to develop a spine?

Like they have for former F.B.I. Director James Comey, book publishers will be lining up to get Spicer signed-up for a book deal. Hell I know I will buy it. He has a story to tell one that 65% of us would love to hear.

Spicer knows, you know, and I know that he should have resigned the day Trump pushed him out in front of the cameras and forced, yes forced him to lie and defend Trumps “magnificent” win and the “huge crowds” that attended Trumps inauguration. Not only was that press conference hard to watch and embarrassing it also set the tone for this administrations relationship with the press.

Apparently Spicer’s line in the sand was Trump’s hiring of New York financier and former Trump campaign fundraiser Anthony Scaramucci as the new White House communications director. His arrival follows a recent shuffling of Trump’s “Russia” legal team as well. What all these changes tell me is that Trump feels the walls closing in on him.

Doesn’t it feel like the rats are deserting a sinking ship? I can promise you there are many more to come but here is Trumps, and our, problem Trump has yet to fill roughly 1,100 top-tier positions in this administration. Only 41 of Trump’s 111 nominees have cleared the Senate. And despite what Trump says, blaming the Democrats for holding-up his appointments, remember Republican majority, his problems are about the quality of his appointments (surviving the vetting process) and the sheer lack of candidates. No one wants to work with or for Trump. I know that is a big surprise.

So godspeed Sean Spicer. I will look forward to reading your book, I will miss Melissa McCarthy’s impressions of you on Saturday Night Live but you should have run away many months ago.

  4. Trump is on vacation August 3 – August 20, so not many of those appointments are still not going to be made.

    Watching the Trump saga from the isolation of Aotearoa New Zealand is as good as watching any television drama. You never know what will happen in the next episode.
