A lot has taken place at the White House over the past few weeks. Sean Spicer resigned from his coveted position as press secretary after reportedly disagreeing with Donald Trump's selection of Anthony Scaramucci as the White House's new communications director. Then, former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus was fired from his position. The shakeup took America by surprise, and, of course, the internet offered its own Spicer and Priebus memes and jokes to lighten the nation's mood.
While announcing the major change in the White House, Trump tweeted on Friday afternoon that he was "pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F. Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American..."
Ever since then, observers online have come up with their comical takes of the change and what they believe will happen in the future. And it's not just anyone joking about the new shift in the White House: Even California Rep. Maxine Waters and political commentator Ana Navarro joined the crowd with their quips.
Other people are itching to see a book deal from both Spicer and Priebus about their relatively short-lived journey in Trump's administration.
Some of the best include...
Maxine Waters With Her Take
Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition.— Maxine Waters (@MaxineWaters) July 30, 2017
I wonder if Mike Pence read this tweet?
Spicer, Priebus, And Dancing With The Stars
So does this now mean Reince Priebus will be competing against Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars??🕺🕺🏻— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) July 28, 2017
In case you didn't know, there's a rumor about Spicer appearing on Dancing With The Stars. (But it looks like he won't be appearing on the entertainment show. Sad!)
This Thoughtful Point
Add Priebus to the (growing) list of Republicans — Christie, Spicer, Sessions — who’ve been paid back with humiliation for supporting Trump.— jelani cobb (@jelani9) July 28, 2017
Although not exactly a joke on the surface, The New Yorker's Jelani Cobb's tweet points to the tumultuous environment of the current administration. There's some dark humor in that.
Book Deal, Please
Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer should get together and write a tell-all book. I'm sure they both have plenty to tell...— Caroline O. (@RVAwonk) July 28, 2017
Everyone wants to know what happened in there.
A recurring joke about both Spicer and Priebus points to what some perceived as their loyalty going unrewarded.
A Titanic GIF, Obviously
Now that Reince and Spicer are gone, who'll be in the band playing on deck? pic.twitter.com/FCP4ql6Gj5— Bonnie K (@BonniBK) July 30, 2017
Given the drama that has recently occurred, it makes sense that some people are just going to skip everything and just use a Titanic gif to encapsulate the chaos.
What Are Spicer And Priebus Up To?
I'm picturing Reince and Spicer at home on their couch watching CNN like... pic.twitter.com/28uRx4i9zG— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) July 28, 2017
George Takei might know.
A Crazy Show Or Just Another Day In America?
Spicer gone. Health care bill dead. Reince defenestrated. This is the end of season 1, right?— Jordan Weissmann (@JHWeissmann) July 28, 2017
With the kind of resignation and firing that took place, it's hard to believe that this is reality in the United States.
A Solid Lord Of The Flies Reference
The Trump White House has turned into Lord of the Flies. You basically have a bunch of little boys turning on each other... Spicer is Piggy.— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) July 27, 2017
This is where you should pick up a copy and read it, probably.
Who Leaked Scaramucci's Information?
Scaramucci: REINCE LEAKED MY FINANCIALS!— Frederick Douglass (@HITEXECUTIVE) July 27, 2017
Reince: It wasn't me
Trump: Who then?
Bannon: It was Reince
Kellyanne: The microwave?
No one knows, but this 50 Cent gif is perfect.
This Hilarious Falsity
Just realized Reince Priebus is Sean Spicer spelled backwards.— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) July 28, 2017
Can We Get A Parks And Rec. Gif In Here?
Reince and Spicer are going to have the best trip to Vegas ever. pic.twitter.com/2HKnGzTglV— Talia (@2020fight) July 28, 2017
Maybe Spicer and Priebus will take a break and go to Sin City.
A Ben And Jerry's Run By Spicer And Priebus
Rumor: Reince and Spicer to open a Ben and Jerry’s.— Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) July 28, 2017
With how unpredictable these switch-ups have been in the White House, we can expect more jokes in the future.
