White House press secretary Sean Spicer is leaving his job as White House press secretary, and there’s no way to measure the impact he’s had on the internet during his short tenure.

From his first press conference to the long period he shied away from the cameras — and all the times in between — Spicer was able to fill a news hole each day, while providing some jaw-dropping quotes to reporters and internet users in general.

Now that Sean Spicer is walking away from the podium, let’s take a look at how people are responding to the thought of their press conferences in the future being less — “spicey.”

The fact is, Sean Spicer had the largest group ever to attend a going away party. Period.

The worst part of Sean Spicer resigning is we will lose Melissa McCarthy playing Sean Spicer.

We’ll always have those six months of you lying to us every single day.

The best tribute to Sean Spicer would be for someone to stand up in the briefing room and insist that Spicer absolutely did not quit, period

Sean Spicer’s first task was to deny photographic reality to protect a vain boss’ ego, but sure, this *job offer* was the humiliating thing

Trump offered the job to Scaramucci on Friday and requested Spicer to remain as press secretary. However, Spicer told Trump that the appointment is a “major mistake,” according to a source reported by the New York Times.

Spicer would’ve been in a position subordinate to Scaramucci — a financier from New York with little to no political experience — which he rejected.

The search for a new communications director began in May when Mike Dubke stepped down. Since White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was unable to find a suitable substitute — the extended duration of time prompted Trump to select Scaramucci without the approval of Priebus.

Spicer has indicated he’ll stay with the White House through August, and called his time at the podium “an honor and a privilege.” For any Spicer fans, there’s some good news. He’ll be giving a one-on-one interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel Friday night.
