White House press secretary Sean Spicer has resigned from his post 6 months into the Trump Administration.

Spicer resigned on Friday ending a brief, turbulent tenure that gained global notoriety, after President Donald Trump named adviser and Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci as his top communications official.

The decision is believed to have not gone well with Spicer who had taken the responsibilities associated with the job in the interim since Mike Dubke resigned from the role in May.

Spicer’s departure reflected turmoil within Trump’s legal and communication teams amid investigation into possible ties between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

In his first public comments since the news broke, Spicer told CNN’s Dana Bash: “I wanted to give the president and the new team a clean slate.”

Spicer’s deputy Sarah Huckabee Sanders also announced she would be replacing Spicer as press secretary

Scaramucci is a major Republican donor who supported Trump in the general election, but initially backed the Wisconsin governor, Scott Walker, and the former Florida governor Jeb Bush in the Republican primaries.

According to The Guardian, Scaramucci’s appointment was apparently fought not just by Spicer, but also by Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, according to a source close to the White House.

In a statement posted on the Press Secretary’s official Twitter page, Spicer said: “It’s been an honor & a privilege to serve @POTUS @realDonaldTrump & this amazing country. I will continue my service through August.”

    ….wooow, so soon. Your boss has had enough or was it you? Either way, neither of you inspire me or have the capacity to do so.

    To your boss, lair, blamer, whiner, bully-in-Chief…your time cometh. Perhaps you can remedy the situation by taking a hard look in the mirror. At 71, I doubt.

    Mr President, what a spectacle we are witnessing.

    Best wishes.

    Trump is a difficult human. Working for/with him must be an everyday decision (to stay or not to). America has a dictator on their hands and don’t even know it yet, most def one of the wonders of the world.
