Sean Spicer resigned Friday and Hollywood is blowing up with excitement in hopes that the White House press secretary will write a tell all book as soon as possible.
Just minutes after news spread that President Donald Trump's White House press secretary was giving up the position, stars including Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Zach Braff and Patton Oswalt jumped on the story.
"Dear @SeanSpicer Please write a book. Immediately," Kimmel tweeted.
According to the New York Times, Spicer is leaving the administration after telling President Trump he disagreed with the appointment of the New York financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director, which happened at just 10 a.m. Friday morning.
Spicer later took to Twitter himself, saying "It's been an honor & a privilege to serve" the President and "this amazing country," and that he would continue his service through August.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders will become the new press secretary, the White House announced.
Take a look at the farewells to the Trump spokesman so many Hollywood stars loved to hate.
Spicey didn't resign cuz lying to reporters for a corrupt president was morally or legally wrong. He just wasn't very good at it. Fuck him.— Joss Whedon (@joss) July 21, 2017
