Thursday marked the last official day of Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer’s tumultuous run as a member of President Ezekiel von FuckFace’s staff, and who knew? I mean, I loved the guy and I didn’t even know. In fact, I thought he’d been gone ever since Sarah Huckabee Sanders, aka Suckabee, took over the role of first fibber on the mic when she started holding White House press briefings.

I wish I could say that I’m going to miss Spicy Facts, but I already did that when I thought he was gone.


So in memoriam of Spicy Facts’ rise from White House bunny to White House communications spokesperson, let’s take a look back at some of the best stories written about the man, the myth, the legend.

Like the time when he claimed that Hitler didn’t gas the Jews:


Or the many fights he had with the press:


Or the time he hid among the bushes to avoid the press:


And who can forget the time he started checking staff’s cellphones to find who was leaking news to the press?


Or the time that he wanted to convince a group of grown adults that “covfefe” was an actual word?


We are really going to miss you, Spicy Facts—too bad we all thought you were already gone.
