At times, it has seemed like a bumpy ride for Sean Spicer, the President’s first Press Secretary, but his perseverance has paid off.
Spicer was the recipient of a fairly tough job when the President’s team arrived in Washington D.C. Not only was he responsible for keeping the rabid media at bay as they continually attacked and insulted the Commander in Chief, Spicer would also be in charge of meticulously explaining the unconventional actions of an extremely unique President. Beyond that, he would be facing lambasting at the hands of Saturday Night Live and CNN, both media entities known for their goofball behavior. At times, it was believed that Spicer was on his way out during what the media dubbed as an “impending” staff shakeup at the White House that never came to fruition.
Now, after 6+ months of working tirelessly to make America great again, Spicer is headed for a promotion.
“Spicer will now be a Deputy Chief of Staff for President Trump. He will be more behind-the-scenes now but will possibly come out and be a spokesperson for the administration sometimes. He’s moving into a more elevated role that plays to his strengths.
“According to the report, Spicer and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus have also approached Fox News personality Laura Ingraham about the role of press secretary.”
Trump’s communications team should be lauded for their work for the President, given the absurd speed at which the Commander in Chief is operating.
Also complicating the position of Press Secretary, which will presumably be filled by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is President’s Trump unique command of social media. Where Presidents such as Barack Obama, and failed candidates such as Hillary Clinton, employed a high-dollar team of social media experts to filter, polish, spit-shine, and market-test the 140 character messages of their democratic deities, The Donald stands alone in his stubborn and steadfast insistence on social media sovereignty.
Good luck to Sean Spicer in his new role, and we look forward to Sarah Huckabee Sanders wiping the floor with CNN and the rest of their liberal media pals in the weeks to come.
