Trump White House Is Reportedly Already Talking About Sean Spicer’s Replacement
A White House source tells Axios that despite only days on the job, Donald Trump‘s senior staff is already looking for someone to replace press secretary Sean Spicer.
Politico Playbook alum Mike Allen writes, “This West Wing is a tough neighborhood. Even AFTER Sean Spicer’s successful get-back-on-the-horse presser yesterday, I’m told that a top White House official was discussing his possible replacement. On Day 4!”
He continues, reporting that Trump himself is displeased with Spicer for reasons completely divorced from his argumentative skills. “Unfortunately for Spicer, Trump is obsessed with his press secretary’s performance art. Our Jonathan Swan hears that Trump hasn’t been impressed with how Spicer dresses, once asking an aide: ‘Doesn’t the guy own a dark suit?'”
The Washington Post likewise reports this morning that Trump never wanted Spicer to begin with. “He did not see Spicer as particularly telegenic and preferred a woman for the position,” they write. The Post also recounts that the Trump White House was not happy with Spicer’s choice of suit.
