A literally resigned Sean Spicer admits SNL hurt his feelings

In an on-camera White House Briefing on Friday, she read a statement from President Trump in which he said he was "grateful for Sean's work".

"I just wish him every continued success, and we're just going to continue at this White House and to continue to focus on the agenda that carried President Trump to victory last fall", Pence said.

Scaramucci announced at a press briefing earlier in the day that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will replace Spicer as the press secretary moving forward.

Earlier in the day, a report by the New York Times said Spicer made a decision to quit after "vehemently" disagreeing with President Donald Trump's appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as the new communications director.

The press conference marked a stark contrast between Scaramucci's first days in the White House and Sean Spicer's, who held a combative first press conference centering on the size of Trump's inauguration crowds.

Spicer's resignation came after Scaramucci, a NY financier and former Trump campaign fundraiser, accepted the new job, a move Spicer adamantly opposed.

While not a surprise, Spicer's departure was abrupt and reflected heightened turmoil within Trump's legal and communication teams amid a widening investigation into possible ties between Trump's 2016 campaign and the Kremlin. The president admires the loyalty Scaramucci has demonstrated to him, by defending him vehemently on cable "news" shows.

When Spicer spoke to News 9 in January, he said he had high hopes for his job.

Trump also called Scaramucci an important addition to his administration. In a February 6 story, Politico cited unnamed sources who claimed President Trump took issue with the fact that Spicer was played on by a woman on SNL.

Scaramucci has since taken time to apologize to his longtime friend for comments past.

Ultimately, it wasn't the constant embarrassment from having to deny things that are plainly true on behalf of the president that pushed Spicer over the edge.

Before Scaramucci endorsed Trump, the investment-firm founder backed GOP candidates Scott Walker and Jeb Bush, reports Business Insider. "We have accomplished so much and we are getting credit for so little".

"From what I understand, and all the reports are, the president didn't want you to go".
