It’s really hard to believe why the media is less popular that ISIS when you see them camped outside Sean Spicer’s house, chronicling his every move since he resigned as President Trump’s press secretary last Friday. This might just be the dumbest story of all.
Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer isn’t letting his life go to the dogs after his stunning resignation.
Instead, the man who was once chiefly charged with spinning Donald Trump‘s message, was spotted taking his pooch out for a walk on Sunday morning.
The 45-year-old was wearing a navy blue t-shirt with what appeared to be the White House seal on the front, as well as some black shorts and blue trainers while taking his rescue dog, Billy, for a stroll around his Alexandria neighborhood.
Spicer also received a special delivery, with a flower man spotted carrying a basket of goods to the front door. It was not entirely clear what was inside the care package, but it appeared someone had sent Spicey some chocolates and wine to help cope – or celebrate – his newfound unemployment.
The 45-year-old abruptly resigned Friday after his former boss hired Anthony Scaramucci to serve as the new White House communications director.
Spicer denounced what he considered Scaramucci’s lack of qualifications, according to people familiar with the situation.
However, he was full of praise for Sarah Huckabee Sanders – who was promoted to become the new White House Press Secretary. ‘I could not have asked for a better deputy that @SHSanders45 – she will be fantastic @PressSec and serve @POTUS & @WhiteHouse very well,’ he tweeted after his shock resignation.
Spicer isn’t the first White House Press Secretary to resign his job, but we never recall the media swarming the house of someone who did. Remarkably, on Friday Reuters actually had a live feed of his house.
Reporters and other observers ripped into the Reuters politics Twitter page for posting a livestream of the outside of Sean Spicer’s home on Friday.
Spicer announced his resignation as White House press secretary on Friday morning, and Reuters puzzled onlookers by putting a camera outside of Spicer’s home.
“WATCH LIVE: The scene outside Sean Spicer’s house following the announcement of his resignation,” Reuters tweeted with the link to the livestream.
As of this article’s posting, it was still up.
“Whatta town,” New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman wrote about the live feed.
National Review‘s Jim Geraghty called it “creepy.”
This is not newsworthy. Spicer is at the White House, not at home….and he has young kids. Don't know why Reuters would do this. pic.twitter.com/XSzYclWdGj

Because they’re garbage, that’s why.
