In an exclusive interview with Fox News, outgoing White House press secretary Sean Spicer told Sean Hannity on Friday evening that the White House had too many cooks in the kitchen. According to Spicer, the president did not want him to step down.
Spicer, who held himself with class and dignity during the interview, told Hannity he suggested to the president that Sarah Huckabee Sanders and incoming communications director, Anthony Scaramucci should start with a clean slate and thus, Spicer felt he should move on.
According to Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, Spicer is leaving the White House on good terms. Spicer’s replacement as press secretary will be Sanders.
Spicer spent a rocky 6-months serving in his role as press secretary. He often went head to head with the media over the meaning of “fake news.” Spicer often found himself defending the president’s tweets, many of which lambasted the media outlets that cover him each day.
