Scaramucci, Spicer, Trump: The Three Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Robert T Kiyosaki once said “quitting is the easiest thing”, and the current White House, or may I say the past, is perfectly embodying this. The most recent series of White House quittings have been within the Communications Department, and have taken the United States, and the rest of the world by storm.
First, let’s talk about Sean Spicer. After his first White House experience as the Easter Bunny during the Bush administration, he quickly rose to the top in the 2017 GOP as Director of Communications, and Press Secretary. He had many memorable moments that lead the public to a countdown until the days he left such as claiming that Trumps inaugural audience was “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe”. Spicer held arguably one of the hardest jobs in the White House, as he was responsible for relaying to the public the actions of the Trump Administration such as any of the multiple interactions with Russia, and the dangerous Tweet’s President Trump often sends out, without warning his advisors. Sean Spicer only served 182 days while the average life expectancy of any Press Secretary is 2.9 years. The shortest serving Press Secretary was Jerald terHorst as after 31 days he resigned in protest of Gerald Ford pardoning Richard Nixon in 1974.
After Sean Spicer quit, due to the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci commonly referred to as “the Mooch”, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was appointed White House Press Secretary, and Anthony Scaramucci as White House Director of Communications. Though Sanders has been laying low even with her new position, it is, or was, Anthony Scaramucci who caused the most noise. After his sweet kiss to the press on July 21st, his downward spiral began as only six days on July 27th, he accused Steve Bannon of being able to perform auto-fellatio, efectively blowing up social media, and almost every news outlet. Sadly 4 days after this, he left the White House for all of his actions while press secretary including saying “O.K., I’m going to fire every one of them, and then you haven’t protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks”.
The new GOP has yet to prove us wrong that they will never fail us to provide the public will excitement like a soap opera. America, and the media, cannot wait to see what come next from the mouth of Trump, and the rest of the forever changing White House.
