You’d have thought that turning in his resignation and getting the fuck out of dodge would bring Sean Spicer some much needed peace and a break from the blaring media scrutiny. Sadly, it seems that his petty behavior is following him out the door.
In the wake of his departure, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported an anecdote about the former press secretary allegedly stealing a mini-fridge from some junior staffers. The WSJ said:
Less than a month into his new job, White House press secretary Sean Spicer needed to keep his food and drink cold. He wanted a mini-fridge. He dispatched a top aide to a nearby executive office building where junior research employees are crammed into a room, surviving on Lean Cuisine frozen lunches. Mr. Spicer wants your icebox, the aide said, according to people familiar with the incident. They refused to give it up.
Power to the people! Sounds like a classic bully move. Sean want’s your icebox, your lunch money, to copy your homework and for you to cover for him during 6th period. Sean must have been gobsmacked when the juniors told him where he could chill his beverages, so he did what any reasonable bully would do: He snuck in later and stole it! Well known for his hi-larious hi-jinks (who could forget hiding from the press in the bushes), Sean supposedly went rogue. WSJ also reports:
So Mr. Spicer waited until sundown—after his young staffers had left—to take matters into his own hands. He was spotted by a fellow White House official lugging the icebox down the White House driveway after 8 p.m.
Oh, Sean you scamp! Later, he toilet papered Nancy Pelosi’s bathroom, put live chickens in the Lincoln Bedroom and drew a mustache on a portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt.
One time Obama aid and (pretend?) stoner Kal Penn thinks he might know the fridge in question.
Spicer stole a mini fridge from jr staffers?! Can someone go to my old office in EEOB 112A & tell me if the fridge I bought is still there? https://t.co/UsQQyU5jmR

WSJ also reported that “New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci referred to former press secretary Sean Spicer as Melissa McCarthy to people within the White House.” Ouch! No wonder he bounced. Adding to the schadenfreudy goodness, it turns out ol’ Spicy was actually pretty butt-hurt by Melissa’s tour de force impersonation, which he revealed in an interview with Sean Hannity. According to Newsweek, Sean said “It wasn’t funny,” and that “It was stupid, or silly, or malicious.” Well, which one is it gonna be, Sean? Pick one, Spicy! If you don’t choose, Melissa’s gonna give you a swirly after the third bell rings.
