Sean Spicer said on ‘Hannity’ he resigned after Anthony Scaramucci was named Communications Director because he didn’t want “too many cooks in the kitchen.”
“I just thought it was in the best interest of our communications department, of our press organization, to not have too many cooks in the kitchen,” the outgoing White House press secretary told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Friday.
The resignation comes as President Donald J. Trump named Anthony Scaramucci as White House Communications Director. The post had been vacant since Mike Dubke resigned from the role in late May.
“He wanted to bring some new folks in to help rev up the communications operation, and after reflection, my decision was to recommend to the president that I give Anthony and Sarah a clean slate to start from,” Spicer told Hannity.
Mr. Spicer will be succeeded by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
