18 Funny Twitter Reactions to Resignation of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, FML Hero
On Friday, America’s favorite stooge, Sean Spicer, resigned as White House Press Secretary after disagreeing with Trump’s appointment of Anthony Scaramucci to Head of Communications, and feelings are mixed. As we move out of the Spicey Era, we look forward to hopefully (if it’s not too much to ask) having someone more competent at the podium. Nevertheless, we will mourn the loss of the daily comic relief he provided.
What legacy will the Spiceman leave behind?
That’s easy. Spicer was one of the most unique humans ever to grace the U.S. government. PERIOD.
You know how sometimes something can be so stupid it's funny? Well, that's what's up with Spicer.
The man was a comedy goldmine. From the moment he stepped up to the podium, he has constantly baffled us, ss if he were appointed as some twisted prank on the American people. But time went by and it became apparent that nah, this is just the reality we're living in now. From blatantly lying about crowd sizes at the president’s inauguration, to claiming that Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons, to the time he declared that Trump’s tweets “speak for themselves,” in his 6-month stint at press secretary, he has continued to make us laugh over and over again.
The Daily Show captured his time in office perfectly in this memorial video posted on Twitter:

Members of Congress used the social media platform to bid their adieus publicly as well:
Congratulations Sean Spicer. You've got more guts than Jeff Sessions!— Maxine Waters (@MaxineWaters) July 21, 2017
Chaos as usual in the Trump White House. https://t.co/w2wtUDLPEw— Yvette D. Clarke (@RepYvetteClarke) July 21, 2017
Though it seemed that many were just sad to see the end of his impersonation on Saturday Night Live.
.@melissamccarthy must also be out of her SNL job. Well, we'll always have Youtube.— Rep. Marc Veasey (@RepVeasey) July 21, 2017
Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation of Sean Spicer on SNL, which garnered the highest ratings the show has seen in 6 years, will be missed by many. Not among them, however, is Spicer himself, who after resigning stated that the skits were “malicious” and often “over the line.”
Let us not forget. He was told to lie about crowd sizes/attack media/was left in dark on major POTUS meetings. But this was a step too far?— Gerry Connolly (@GerryConnolly) July 21, 2017
Yo, Spicey. Rep. Connolly just called you OUT! But congressmen weren’t the only ones mourning the loss of the beloved Spicey. Other mourners included George Takei and the folks at SNL themselves.
Wonder who'll play Scaramucci on SNL next season...if he lasts that long. https://t.co/yoFWP0Bpol— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) July 23, 2017
Spicer’s blunders weren’t limited to the podium, though. How could we forget the time he hid in the bushes to escape the press after Comey’s firing. His humiliation will live on forever in memes.

Goodbye, Sean Spicer. May you hide forever in the bushes of our hearts. pic.twitter.com/yvv7Q8c0Gm— Spawn Shyster (@OfcWingblade) July 23, 2017
And in true Spicer fashion, he didn’t leave without humiliating himself one last time.
Yep, the man stole a mini-fridge. From the White House.
Damn man, you couldn't just ordered one off of amazon and had it shipped Prime? You gotta take it from your own staffers?— Chartreuse Lantern (@fakemikejones) July 22, 2017
can we start a gofundme to buy sean spicer a mini fridge— Emma (@politics_n_prep) July 22, 2017
I guess we can let that slide. Maybe it’s the least we can do after 6 months of straight comedy. For that, we thank you.
