In the midst of ongoing turmoil within the White House, long-suffering White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned, reportedly over the hiring of Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director. That leaves us wondering what happens to Sean Spicer next. Spicer had previously been in the midst of staffing fights within the White House and has been treated as something of a punching bag in pop culture, most notably via Melissa McCarthy's impersonation on Saturday Night Live.
Spicer is perhaps the most high-profile resignation of a Trump administration official since National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned in February (though just last night, two lawyers that were part of Trump's legal team defending him in the Russia investigation resigned, as well). Since Spicer was often the public, yelling face of the Trump administration, his departure has been an opportunity for many who had grown used to following his contentious briefings with reporters and making fun of him on Twitter to do what they do best, and make fun of him more. And so it looks like plenty of people have been quick to opine what Sean Spicer should do next now that he no longer has a job yelling at members of the press.

Oh, wait, that apparently won't happen.

Some reminded us all of Spicer's job years before he was press secretary, as the White House Easter bunny.
I hope they let spicer go back to being the WH easter bunny— KRANG T. NELSON (@KrangTNelson) July 21, 2017
Do you think he's going straight to Bob Mueller's office, or is he getting a drink first?— Jesse Berney (@jesseberney) July 21, 2017
Personally, I'm excited for what I imagine will be an excellent book about the crazy 182 days Spicer spent working for a tumultuous administration where apparently many of his co-workers hated him.
More to come...
