7 of the Best Memes Sean Spicer Gave Us While He Lasted
It's the end of an era: White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is officially out. Spicer handed in his resignation to President Donald Trump on July 21, in protest of Trump's hire of Anthony Scaramucci as the new communications director. The New York Times reports that sources said Spicer "believed the appointment was a major mistake."
Spicer's only comment so far comes in the form of a tweet.

In many ways, Spicer's resignation feels like a long time coming, even though this administration has only been in power for six months. It's not totally devastating to see Spicer go, and even though we'll miss the memes about him, we won't miss his many flubs and falsehoods. Ahead, see some of Spicer's best memed moments.
Spicer's first day on the job included becoming a meme for lying about the size of Trump's inauguration crowd.
Discovering Spicer's Venmo account.
The internet had a field day when it discovered the Venmo accounts of both Spicer and Kellyanne Conway. Maybe now Spicer will accept my Venmo request!
Remember when Spicer tried to sell the first healthcare bill to the press?
In his effort to try and explain how much better the new healthcare bill was than Obamacare, Spicer brought out two stacks of papers. The result? Instant meme.
No one ever found the hidden message in Spicer's pin.
Spicer wore an upside-down American flag pin during a press briefing and the internet speculated about what it could've meant.
Learning the hard way not to wear green on TV.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, Spicer tried to celebrate the holiday with a green tie and instead turned into yet another meme.
Failing at trying to compare the Syrian president to Adolf Hitler.
In what might be Spicer's biggest gaffe, the press secretary tried to explain that Hitler wasn't "as bad" as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Reporter Ashley Parker of the Washington Post went through a range of emotions as she reacted to the news.
Hiding in bushes to avoid the press.
To avoid the press, Spicer hid — excuse me, "huddled" — by some bushes on the White House lawn. He eventually took questions from the press. However, the Washington Post reported on Spicer's evasive maneuvers and people couldn't stop cracking jokes about it. Someone even created their own cutout of Spicer's head to put in their bush.
