Twitter Is Here to Say Goodbye to Sean Spicer
The Twittersphere has some parting words for the former White House press secretary.
Sean Spicer sent shock waves through the country Friday (July 21) when he announced his resignation. In many ways the face of the Trump administration, Spicer quickly became a celebrity in his own right for his combative manner of dealing with the media.
In a White House that is polarizing among citizens, Spicer was front and center and often had to defend President Trump. Those who don’t support the president were quick to point out that Spicer told lies or was too brusque in his approach. No matter how you viewed him, one thing is clear: for a brief moment, Spicer was a pop culture phenomenon, becoming a popular target on Saturday Night Live, thanks to Melissa McCarthy’s recurring portrayal of him.
As is often the case when a news story breaks, Twitter was at the ready with its take. This was no exception. Take a look at some of the biting posts people — famous and otherwise — shared.
The fact is, Sean Spicer had the largest group ever to attend a going away party. Period.

Remember that time Sean Spicer sold his integrity to further the lies of an unethical president and worked to erode trust of journalists?

Sean Spicer resigns. Surprised he stayed as long as he did. In the present heat, there will be others who do the same.

It was clear that Sean Spicer was in over his head from the beginning, just like the entire administration.

If ever there were an instance of rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic, Sean Spicer's "Resignation" would be it. Nearer my God to thee

Sean Spicer resigned when he couldn't find his name on the list of associates to be pardoned.

Wishing Sean Spicer the best of luck in all future endeavors.
We'll always have those six months of you lying to us every single day.

I just want Sean Spicer to walk out, say Trump's inauguration crowd was smaller than Obama's, drop the mic and walk out… #Spicey
