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.
