WASHINGTON — Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned on Friday morning, telling President Trump that he could no longer suppress his calling to work for energy giant ConEdison.
“I just can’t run away from my passion anymore," said Spicer, “Being a press secretary is cool, but have you ever met a ConEdison employee? They’re very cool”
Spicer faced a load of questions surrounding whether or not his resignation had anything to do with Trump’s recent appointment of New York financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director, to which he replied:
“I knew I was going to get this question. No. It has nothing to do with that. Sure, I don't like Scaramucci, but he doesn't have that kind of power over me. This is about me. This is about ConEd. Since I was a small boy, I always wanted to be a big old energy man. As I get older, I see that dream getting more and more unattainable every day. If I’m ever going to make my dream come true, now is the time. So I need to go do that.”
We wish you the best, Sean.
