White House press secretary Sean Spicer abruptly resigned Friday, ending a rocky six-month tenure that made his news briefings defending President Donald Trump must-see TV. He said Trump’s communications team “could benefit from a clean slate” as the White House seeks to steady operations amid the Russia investigations and ahead of a health care showdown. Spicer quit in protest over the hiring of a new White House communications director, New York financier Anthony Scaramucci, objecting to what Spicer considered his lack of qualifications as well as the direction of the press operation, according to people familiar with the situation. Scaramucci, a polished television commentator and Harvard Law graduate, quickly took centre stage at a briefing, parrying questions from reporters and commending Trump in a 37-minute charm offensive.

I can't help but notice how relieved and happy Sean Spicer looks on interviews now.  He is far too much the professional to bad-mouth his previous employer, but I have a suspicion that he was having a problem with the quantity and depth of spin he had to provide.  I even think I was unfair in comparing him to Goebbels; Goebbels never had the guts to resign.  

Sorry Sean, I misjudged you.  You did have a moral compass after all.
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.

Apparently so. Just took way longer for it to show that most (I hope).
