“Spicey” resigned Friday shortly President Trump selected Anthony Scaramucci as communications director. 

Spicer only gave us six months on the job, but his daily press briefings became the stuff of comedic lore and hashtags such as #SeanSpicerFacts. Well, we at least we’ll have some tweets and memes in our minds and hearts. But first a word, rather a tweet from the man himself: 

Spicer was mocked almost instantly on his first day when he said that Trump’s inauguration had the largest audience ever.  His “facts” was later changed to “alternative facts,” by White House aide Kellyanne Conway. And the phrase never went away.
