In that role, she drew on her more than 10 years experience in television news to produce televised events for the White House.

She portrayed Spicer as a hostile figure who tore through the briefing room on a portable podium, willing to attack the press.

Spicer resigned Friday because he reportedly disagreed with President Trump's decision to hire Anthony Scaramucci as the new White House communications director.

After Spicer's resignation, Priebus said he supports Scaramucci "100 percent", according to news reports.

Scaramucci also is addressing reporters at the White House. The President has frequently disparaged Spicer's performance to friends and associates, but he does that with many of his staff.

"He's quoted as saying Scaramucci would be a awful choice". While it remains unclear just what exactly Spicer will do now that his stint in the White House has effectively ended, his resignation has raised multiple questions regarding the personal life he must be desperate to get back to.

He says in a tweet that he will continue his service through August.

The news of the expected appointment was first reported by Axios. Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has largely taken over the briefings, turning them into an off-camera event.

Spicer reached breaking point on Friday, the White House official said, when Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci to be the new communications director, a bid to reset the scandal-wracked administration. Spicer has been handling the communications director's duties since Dubke left.

McCarthy's last appearance as Spicer on "Saturday Night Live" on May 12 in fact addressed those tensions. "Wishing colleague & patriot @PressSec Sean Spicer all BEST", before welcoming Scaramucci to the West Wing.

Before being tapped by Mr Trump for the job of press secretary, Mr Spicer was spokesman for the Republican National Committee. Priebus has also reportedly opposed hiring Scaramucci for various administration positions.

Major staffing shake-ups have been a constant subject of conversation at the White House, but have often failed to materialize.

Zach Braff bluntly wrote, "Sean Spicer is the worst and the karma police are coming to arrest him". White House officials told the Daily Beast that some fear the incoming communications lead will do nothing to change the image of "amateur hour" in the West Wing.
