Sean Spicer has resigned as White House Press Secretary.

The move came just moments after President Trump offered New York financier Anthony Scaramucci the job of communications director.

Spicer is vacating his position just six months and one day after he first stood at the podium and made his controversial remarks about the size of President Trump’s inauguration crowd.

The New York Times was the first to report the news of Spicer’s resignation.

Spicer managed to stay on the job for more than six months despite predictions for months that he was on the way out.
He delivered the news to President Trump Friday morning.

ABC news reporter Jonathan Karl tweeted Friday that he went to ask Spicer about the Scaramucci news and that Spicer ‘slammed the door’ in his face.

Another sign of tension: Spicer was not even present when Trump gave an interview to the New York Times Wednesday where the president lashed out at investigators. The only press aide present was long time press advisor Hope Hicks.

Spicer was furious about the slight, New York Magazine reported.

Spicer is a longtime Republican operative who has been subjected to ridicule on Saturday Night Live for some of his strenuous efforts to defend the president.

He had already taken a major step back from public view. White House briefings in recent weeks have typically been held off camera, and mostly by his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Even Spicer’s most recent briefing was conducted off camera.
