Twitter can’t stop laughing at Sean Spicer’s new book cover

It's called 'The Briefing.'

Of all the people who have flamed out while serving President Donald Trump—Anthony Scaramucci, Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon, Oma-fricking-rosa—no one did it quite so publicly and with the same lack of panache as Sean Spicer.

The former RNC official was thrust into the national conversation on day one, when, as Trump’s press secretary, he was forced to defend the president’s inauguration crowds. And he never recovered. Every televised briefing after was a spectacle rich with gaffes, flubs, and light Holocaust denial.

It was something, and now he’s got a new book.

It’s called … wait for it, you are never gonna guess:

The briefing! You know, the thing he was hilariously, wildly, outstandingly inept at.

Maybe not the greatest choice for a title—and Twitter came for it as swiftly as it came out.

Spicer’s amazing ability to botch words was also referenced.

Like most people who have departed the administration, Spicer has been extremely uncritical of the president, so don’t expect a juicy, James Comey-style tell all.
