Sean, we hardly knew ye.

Sean Spicer turned in his resignation as White House press secretary on Friday, marking the end of a short and particularly contentious run as the public-facing voice of President Donald Trump.

It’s not often that White House press secretaries became household names, but Spicer became an exceptionparticularly after Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation of him on Saturday Night Live.

Spicer resigned on Friday after Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci to communications director. Spicer, according to The New York Times, told Trump he thought the appointment of the financier was a huge mistake.

Reporters thought it was interesting that, given all the potential red lines one might draw while working for Trump, the Scaramucci appointment was when Spicer could take no more.

Other media folks had plenty of suggestions for how Spicer might reboot his career.

Others used the event to take a walk down memory lane:

Spicer lasted barely six months before turning in his resignation, while, according to The Washington Post, his 30 immediate predecessors lasted an average of about three years. But hey, he stayed on the job longer than five press secretaries in history, making his tenure only the sixth-shortest all time.
