White House "Weighing" Replacing Sean Spicer

Tyler Durden's picture

Update 2:

  • WHITE HOUSE DISCUSSING SHIFTING PRESS SECRETARY SEAN SPICER TO SENIOR COMMUNICATIONS ROLE BUT NOTHING IMMINENT-WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL
  • WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT IS CONSIDERING WAYS TO EXPAND ITS COMMUNICATIONS OPERATION-STATEMENT

Update: Spicer goes no bid, with Spicer's odd of being press sec crashing by 50% in minutes.

It's time to short SNL.

According to Bloomberg, the White House is weighing "whether to move Press Secretary Sean Spicer into a more senior role focused on strategy" and bring in a new spokesman for the president, two people familiar with the discussions said.

Spicer has served as President Donald Trump’s press secretary since the beginning of the administration in January. He’s been the subject of speculation for months that he was on the verge of being fired.

Bloomberg hedges that "the discussions on reorganizing the White House communications operation are still preliminary and no final decision has been made" although after months of media mishaps, it is guaranteed that Trump will need at least one scapegoat, and Spicer is likely it.

Meanwhile, since the news has yet to trickle down to PredictIt, one can find some good arbitrage opportunities at the online betting site at this moment.

Replace him with a goat. Then they will have an excuse to complain about the constant bleating.

FrozenGoodz's picture

Is there anyone they aren't considering replacing at this point?

Iconoclast421's picture

They need to replace him with someone who will say something real. For example: Newtown is a govt spook "Truman Show" town. Everything they told you on the news is a lie. Here are the documents, declassified by Trump. Oh can you imagine what would happen...

I haven't watched TV for years, so I have no idea what this guy says or sounds like.  I doubt I'm missing anything good.

Trump is always on the ball thinking and considering any lazy or misguided helper. It's the way great business minds think. Trump should be htinking how to replace the neocons in his own partee with some American patriots who give a shit about th emiddle class instead of lining their pockets with MIC blood money and kickbacks from military contractors.

 

Begin with McShame.

At this point Trump should bring in Alex Jones as offical Whitehouse Press Secretary.

Sack the lot of them and replace them with reruns of The Three Stooges and replace the Chump with Incitatus. It will be more entertaining and less damaging.

Eliminate the whole daily press briefing. Elim that position.

Hold weekly chats directly with the people

So, replace Spicer with Megyn Kelly then?

Or maybe Khizr Khan??

no the fat Huckabee chik, she can throw her spare twinkies at the presstitutes...

If you want razor-sharp press combat, how about Ann Coulter? She's not going to let them get off of the subject, and she will combine knowledgeable information that is vetted by a lawyer -- her -- with a high entertainment value.

Bigly's picture

Yes. And she can be extra caustic to fools, so i would give her a go to see how many she could filet...nicely of course.

tmosley's picture

No, and there never was. I, and a lot of other people told you that this was and is a feature of Trump's managment style. 

This may signal a shift in priorities for the administration.

From EPA cuts to Press Secretaries?

 

Is that a confirmed down-trend ...

I'm sure your mommy said the same to your birth doctor... can I replace this?

We should send Hillary and Obama for Operation Fast and Furious Two. We'll get Holder to plan it out and forget in about 30 minutes. What could possibly go wrong?

lots of bonus points there! Good one.

Good decision.  Trump ought to pick a Goldman Sachs guy to be the new press secretary in order to balance things out a bit.  It would also help that he would know (even before Trump does) the administration's key policy positions.

Never One Roach's picture

He can pick Hank Paulson the guy who successfully ripped Americans off for Trillions.

Or maybe motivational Tony Robbins, th eguy who can walk on hot coals.

 

Motivational speaker Robbins’ coal walk burns more than 30 (idiots)

In keeping with Tyler's Bubble Warnings, how about Michael Burry, the Big Short guy who made $800 million off of the last crash? No one would listen to him, either, before the housing crash, so if everything falls, Donald J. Trump can say that he tried to warn us with the Burry appointment. He probably would not do it. He seems like the kind of math guy that wants to pour over reports. Hmmm, maybe, he can work in Treasury, driving the GS guys crazy with his interpretations of the data.

Will Donald Trump get the US to jump off the fence and support the Falkland Islanders right to self-determination instead of 'abstaing'on OAS proposals that support Argentina. Canada is the only nation in the OAS that supports the Islanders human and democratic rights. Come on USA - Falklands – Self -Determination: https://www.academia.edu/11325329/Falklands_-_Self-Determination_single_page_

Sure, why the hell not,,, we're in 7 or 8 wars right now, another one won't be a problem, may even increase GDP.

Considering the UK can't afford to put sprinkler systems in their high rises it appears you need all the help you can get. 

Lumberjack's picture

While you get downvotes here at ZH, I have to agree with you. Canada, which sits next door has her head stuck up in the queens ass (minus Quebec). The Falklands deserve independence as well as Crimea.

Watch 'All the Plenary's Men' on YouTube....enough of this empire horseshit thingy. The dinosaurs tried it and....well, no one learned....seems to be an ongoing banking thing.

I'm surprised he has made it this long. Imagine these leftists having SNL sketches about you and all of the damage they can do. I would not want the job.

Not a bad move.  I like the guy, but that chick did a good job.  Plus, I don't think any of the press want to risk being called a misogynist.  I their world you can treat white guys like shit, but everyone else is sacred.

Want to do something cool, start a club for "White Men" only and advertise it on telephone poles. See the type of response you get. Get a bull shit voicemail box for people to leave a message on it. Do the Same for a "Black Men" only club then compare the messages you receive.

Why waste time on this alligator when the swamp’s most critical economic and political problems revolve around the hegemony of a global corporate cartel, which is headquartered in the US because this is where their dominant military force resides. The US Constitution is therefore the “kingpin” of an all-inclusive global financial empire. These fictitious entities now own the USA and command its military infrastructure by virtue of the Federal Reserve Corporation, regulatory capture, MSM propaganda, and congressional lobbying.

 

The Founders had to fight a bloody Revolutionary War to win our right to incorporate as a nation – the USA. But then, for whatever reason, our Founders granted the greediest businessmen among them unrestricted corporate charters with enough potential capital & power to compete with the individual states, smaller sovereign nations, and eventually to buy out the USA itself. The only way The People can regain our sovereignty as a constitutional republic now is to severely curtail the privileges of any corporation doing business here. To remain sovereign we have to stop granting corporate charters to just any “suit” that comes along without fulfilling a defined social value in return. The "Divine Right Of Kings” should not apply to fictitious entities just because they are “Too Big To Fail”. We can't afford to privatize our Treasury to transnational banks anymore. Government must be held responsible only to the electorate, not fictitious entities; and banks must be held responsible to the government if we are ever to restore sanity, much less prosperity, to the world.

 

It was a loophole in our Constitution that allowed corporate charters to be so easily obtained that a swamp of corruption inevitably flooded our entire economic system. It is a swamp that can't be drained at this point because the Constitution doesn’t provide a drain. This 28th amendment is intended to install that drain so Congress can pull the plug ASAP. As a matter of political practicality we must rely on the Article 5 option to do this, for which the electorate will need overwhelming consensus beforehand. Seriously; an Article 5 Constitutional Convention is rapidly becoming our only sensible option.

 

This is what I think it will take to save the world; and nobody gets hurt:

 

28th Amendment:

 

Corporations are not persons in any sense of the word and shall be granted only those rights and privileges that Congress deems necessary for the well-being of the People. Congress shall provide legislation defining the terms and conditions of corporate charters according to their purpose; which shall include, but are not limited to:

 

1, prohibitions against any corporation; a, owning another corporation; b, becoming economically indispensable or monopolistic; or c, otherwise distorting the general economy;

 

2, prohibitions against any form of interference in the affairs of; a, government, b, education, c, news media; or d, healthcare, and

 

3, provisions for; a, the auditing of standardized, current, and transparent account books; b, the establishment of state and municipal banking; and c, civil and criminal penalties to be suffered by corporate executives for violation of the terms of a corporate charter.

Copies and pastes here at ZH the verbose rants that he writes to himself. 

...sorta like Bruce Wilds, but without his own blog.

Endgame Napoleon's picture

What do you mean that the Founders granted too much power to corporations in the early years of the Republic? You do not cite a specific part of the Constitution as the site of the unfortunate "loophole," nor do you tell us which early corporations these were, comparing them to modern corporations.

Trump should show the left radicals, dressed up as reporters looking for the best Georgetown party invites, how trendy he is by rolling out his own gay female transgendered ethnic skinned Spanish speaker android talking robot. You know the cute bordello model from Japan. Then announce press briefings are available 24 hours a day by going to his Oracle of news in the press room.

Endgame Napoleon's picture

Yes.

Then answer them all only in Spanish, letting just the Spanish-speaking reporters get the story so that they can finally understand how it is to compete with immigrants who have an overwhelming advantage in their own country. In this case, the stacked deck will not be welfare and taxfare that makes it easy to accept low wages, but a rigged advantage it will be, nonetheless.

Brilliant! This is Trumpian-cubed.
